Cut down gradually with NICORETTE® then stop

Smoking can be one of the hardest habits to break. For smokers currently unable or not ready to stop smoking abruptly, NICORETTE® Gum+and Inhaler may also be used to as part of a programme to reduce smoking prior to stopping completely. For those smokers, we have got an alternative approach to giving up smoking – NICORETTE® Cut Down to Stop.

Cut Down To Stop is an approach that is clinically proven to help you reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke by up to 50%, making it easier to quit when you are ready.

With NICORETTE® Cut Down To Stop, you should aim to give up smoking completely. Our three clear steps to cutting down make it easier for you to reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke over 6 months with NICORETTE®.

Step 1

Establish how many cigarettes you smoke per day. Set a date to start reducing the number of cigarettes you smoke.

Step 2

0 Weeks- 6 Months: Start cutting down your cigarettes and use NRT to reduce your smoking until you are ready to stop smoking completely*.

Step 3

6-9 Months: Stop Smoking. Within six months you should have cut out all cigarettes. You can continue to use NRT for a further 3 months**.

* If a reduction in the number of cigarettes has not been achieved after six weeks, professional advice should be sought.
** If a quit smoking attempt cannot be made within six months of starting treatment, professional advice should be sought.
