What if we were to tell you that you could eat away your cigarette addiction; quite literally. And all that you have to do is pop a lozenge in your mouth.
Giving up smoking may never seem more easy or more pleasurable. Now there are smokers who like to chew on a lozenge to mask the ‘cigarette smell’ after they have had a smoke. A nicotine lozenge then can be seen as extension of this quirk.
To clarify, nicotine lozenges are not your everyday lozenges. They have been recognized as a valid tool that helps people get over cigarette smoking and quit the habit. It may sound ironical, but providing low doses of the addictive nicotine can in fact help a person overcome the substance completely. That is exactly what the quit-smoking lozenges do. They provide low doses of nicotine as it dissolves in your mouth. Over a period of time, the need for the substance will reduce, until you are free from it.
How to use them

- It is advisable not to eat or drink for 15 minutes before you intend to take a lozenge.
- Chewing or swallowing the lozenge is strictly prohibited. Since it contains nicotine, you should let it dissolve in your mouth. A lozenge my take half an hour to completely dissolve.
- Take only one at a time. Do not follow one lozenge after another.
