Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
I appreciate your effort to quit smoking. You have made the right decision.
Nicotex gum is a type of chewing gum that is used as an aid in nicotine replacement therapy
(NRT), a process for smoking cessation
. It works by delivering nicotine to the body in a safe way and thereby reduces craving or relapse to smoking.
It comes in 2 doses, 2mg - which is recommended for light smokers and 4mg which is recommended for heavy smokers (> 1 pack per day). In your case, since you smoke only 3 - 4 cigarettes per day, 2mg should be sufficient. It can be taken on a need basis, i.e. whenever you develop a craving or an uncontrollable urge to smoke.
Please continue to stay motivated and wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
