Nicotine gums are usually available over the counter.

Inhalers were invented in 1998. Inhalers deliver nicotine in a lesser amount than cigarettes.? They are very convenient to use and do not have the residual tar and toxins found in cigarette smoke.

In an inhaler a small nicotine cartridge is placed inside the inhaler. A person is supposed to inhale it deeply.? The vapor is? absorbed? by the mucous membrane in the throat and mouth.? The vapor does not reach the lungs. Nicotine is more harmful when absorbed directly by the lungs. This therapy spans a period of about six months during which several inhalers are needed. In the first month maximum number of inhalers is required and the need slowly declines over a period of time.

Inhalers work best for those people who are addicted not just to the cigarette, but? also the pleasure of lighting up and holding their cigarette. An inhaler is shaped in the form of a cigarette. Nicotine inhalers have been approved by the FDA and are considered to provide the smokers with the comfort of the ?hand to mouth ritual?.

Some companies claim that to quit cold turkey is the most difficultway to stop smoking.
