Nicorette Quickmist 1mg Mouthspray Freshmint is used to relive and/or prevent withdrawal symptoms and reduce the cravings you get when you try and stop smoking or when cutting the number of cigarettes you smoke. It provides a safer alternative to smoking for both the individual and those around them. Ideally you should aim to stop smoking. However it can be used in a number of different ways, either to completely replace all your cigarettes, or if you do not feel ready to stop smoking completely, to replace certain cigarettes you smoke. It may also help increase your motivation to quit.
When you stop smoking your body misses the nicotine that you have been absorbing. You may experience unpleasant feelings and a strong desire to smoke (craving). This indicates that you were dependent on nicotine. When you use Nicorette Quickmist, nicotine passes rapidly into your body through the lining of your mouth. This relieves the unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. It will also help you to stop your craving to smoke, but will not give you the buzz you get from smoking a cigarette.

For many smokers this means about 1-2 sprays every 30 minutes to 1 hour. Do not use more than 2 sprays per dose or 4 sprays per hour or 64 sprays per day.
