Nicotine Addiction Treatment including nicotine replacement therapy and non-nicotine medications, have been approved as safe and effective in treating nicotine dependence. Nicotine replacement therapy gives you nicotine without tobacco and the harmful chemicals in tobacco smoke. Nicotine replacements help relieve withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Nicotine patch delivers nicotine through your skin and into your bloodstream. Nicotine gum like Nicorette delivers nicotine to your blood through the lining of one's mouth and is often recommended to curb cravings. Nicotine lozenge dissolves in one's mouth and like nicotine gum, delivers nicotine through the lining of one's mouth. The nicotine in this product, sprayed directly into each nostril, is absorbed through your nasal membranes into your blood vessels. The nasal spray delivers nicotine a bit quicker than gum, lozenges or the patch, but not as rapidly as smoking a cigarette. It's usually prescribed for three-month periods for up to six months. Nasal and throat irritation, runny nose, sneezing and coughing are common side effects. Nicotine inhaler is shaped something like a cigarette holder. A single puff can deliver nicotine vapour into one's mouth. The body also absorbs nicotine through the lining in one's mouth, where it then enters one's bloodstream. Common side effects are mouth and throat irritation and occasional coughing. Nicotine Addiction Treatment helps one to stop smoking and cope by reducing withdrawal symptoms including tobacco craving, while behavioural treatments help one develop the skills one need to avoid tobacco over the long run.
