I can understand your concern. It can happen sometimes that tobacco quitters get addicted to the NRT and feel difficult to quit the products.
First of all, do not use nicotine patch
on your tongue. If you are used to putting tobacco products in your mouth, then switch to lozanges and do not use patches for a while. In addition, there are some ways that can help you to quit the lozenges.
Switch the lozenges with chewing gum or candy once or twice a day and then increase the frequency. Keep your hands busy with doing some work, playing game on phone, etc. Figure out the pattern that is making you crave for tobacco product such as group of friends, cup of coffee, long phone conversations, tv etc., and then change your routine for some days and leave those triggers for a while.
In addition, you can see a mental health counselor or psychiatrist
who can prescribe you medicines to combat the withdrawal symptoms
that you might be suffering from while quitting tobacco, and can give you counselling
sessions to quit tobacco and NRT products.
I hope this information helps you. Thank you for choosing HealthcareMagic. I wish you can quit the addiction soon.
