How REDUCE TO QUIT® Works
REDUCE TO QUIT® is when you gradually reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke while managing your nicotine cravings and withdrawal symptoms with NICORETTE® Gum until you’re ready to quit for good.
We suggest aiming to give up smoking completely in six months. However, that’s only a guide. If you haven’t stopped smoking completely after six months, please see your health care professional.
Here are dosing suggestions for our REDUCE TO QUIT® approach:
0 to 6 weeks – Ease into It
Identify the cigarettes that matter the least in your daily routine and replace them with NICORETTE® Gum.
6 to 16 weeks – Cut Down by 50%
Set goals to try and get rid of some of the cigarettes that are more difficult to give up, like the first one of the day or after a meal, and use NICORETTE® Gum to manage the cravings and withdrawal symptoms you're bound to experience.
By 16 weeks, you should aim to be smoking half the amount of daily cigarettes as when you started following this approach.
6 to 24 weeks – The Home Stretch
Continue to eliminate cigarettes from your daily routine while managing your nicotine cravings and withdrawal symptoms with NICORETTE® Gum.
