  • ICN Donna-Nicorette gum

    Donna,How did you wean yourself off the nicorette gum?I think I'm hooked on the gum now.As you know,it's quite expensive.Any tips on how to get off of it?I tried chewing regular gum in between to no avail.I've been chewing the nicorette for several years.Thanks.

    I did the nicorette for 6 weeks and then did regular gum. I also knitted a sweater to keep my hands busy. You could try to carry the nicorette just for emergencies until you get off of it. I think you are probably still addicted to nicotine, but at a lower rate. It really will work if you gradually taper off.
    Good luck,

    PS it's been 16 years this month, if I can do it anybody can!

      I can't remember for sure whether it's 17 or 18 years for me --- but I do recall that my first cigarette free day was August 17th.

      I didn't think I'd ever be free of the habit since I was a 2-pack-a-day hacker, but I made it and am forever thankful.

      Stay safe
