Quitting smoking is difficult, but it can be done. Although the Nicotrol® Inhaler (nicotine inhaler) can yield successful results on its own, your chances of quitting for good increase dramatically when this product is used as part of a complete system that addresses other aspects of cigarette addiction.
A complete smoking cessation system can involve:
Medication such as the Nicotrol Inhaler
With the Nicotrol Inhaler, each inhalation delivers a dose of nicotine that is absorbed from your mouth into your body. This helps replace some of the nicotine your body was used to getting from cigarettes, which reduces cravings and other withdrawal symptoms.
