This delicious gum features a cool mint coating so it's pleasant to chew. In order to be successful when you quit smoking, you must be motivated and use this gum regularly. Chew at least nine pieces of gum every day during the first six weeks, and stop smoking before you begin chewing it.
You can increase your chances of success if you use this product for a full 12 weeks. Be sure to use it with a support program as directed in the included user's guide. Getting both physical and mental support will ensure that you can quit for good. Peel off the backing of the product starting at the corner with a loose edge. Begin chewing the gum until you feel a tingling sensation, then place the gum between your cheek and gums. Chew one piece every one to two hours for the first six weeks.
This product must be used exactly as directed to get the correct results. Once you chew it and notice the tingle is gone, replace it with a new piece and chew again until the tingling feeling returns.
