Thanks for writing to us.
Congratulations on your quitting smoking
and thanks that you are now free from Nicotine
At the same time your friend is now getting himself freed through a gradually tapering process that we term as Cold
Your concern that your friends saliva containing Nicotine may unknowingly put yourself in trouble is quite justified.Your care about your health is highly appreciable.
There are two ways of solving this.,
1) Abstain yourself from mouth to mouth contact so that nicotine will not enter your system and you will be free from relapse.
2)tell him to stop using Nicotine Gum /any type of Nicotine Substitute from now on so that he will also be totally detoxified from nicotine and both can enjoy the Nicotine free life .
Wishing your boyfriend a speedy recovery.,
