Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)
and other Methods to Stop Smoking.
Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) involves nicotine being absorbed into your bloodstream from an external source such as patches, gum, inhalers etc in fact any source other than cigarettes. This is designed to quell the cravings of nicotine during your quit process. All the forms of NRT have a success rate of only 10%-20%, depending on the scientific study[AH1] .
This means that 80-90% of the time people fail. Not only does NRT fail most of the time, it also has dangerous side effects. Such as: nausea and indigestion, itching and redness of the skin if using patches, and nightmares – occasionally the side effects can be more serious. So there is little chance of it working, and a very big chance of physical harm. Advanced hypnosis combined with Neuro Linguistic Programing (NLP) is completely safe, drug and chemical free, simple, and WORKS…which is why we offer our commitment to help you quit for life.
Nicotine Replacement Therapy patches are applied to the skin and come in a variety of strengths to suit smokers of varying degrees of habit. In warmer temperatures they often peel off which adds to the cost with replacements. People often tell me they have smoked with the patch on or even removed the patch to smoke a cigarette. Patches can cause irritation to the skin and nausea.
In Australia, based on recommended time frame for usage of patches alone, 10 – 16 weeks COST $390 – $680.
If you combine patches with nicotine gum, which research indicates helps, add approximately another $100 to $300 to the bill. COST $490-$780
Nicotine Chewing Gum 2mg (8-10 pieces per day) or 4mg (4-6 pieces per day): You may experience some side effects from using nicotine gum. These usually occur in the first weeks of using the gum and are most likely due to chewing incorrectly or to the effects of nicotine. This may include dizziness, sore mouth or throat, jaw-muscle ache, nausea, indigestion or heartburn, and or hiccups. Some effects such as irritability sleep disturbances and lightheadedness may be withdrawal symptoms due to low nicotine levels.
For a standard course of 15 – 20 weeks of nicotine gum alone, you can expect the COST to be $480 – $690.
Nicotine Lozenges – 2mg & 4mg – 1 lozenge every 1-2 hours for the first 6 weeks. No more than 1 lozenge at a time and do not exceed more than 15 per day. You may experience some side effects from using the nicotine lozenge. These usually occur in the first weeks of using the nicotine lozenge and may include a bitter taste, sore throat, mouth irritation, difficulty in swallowing, headaches, nausea, indigestion or heartburn, hiccups, dizziness and or belching.
Nicotine lozenges and nicotine tablets are placed and dissolved under the tongue. COST approximately $570 for a 12 week course in lozenges.
Nicotine Tablets -2mg-initial dose is 1-2 tablets every 1 to 2 hours. Up to 8-12 per day, no more than 40 per day. You may experience some side effects from using the nicotine tablet. These usually occur in the first weeks of using the nicotine tablet and may include burning sensation in the mouth, sore throat, dry mouth, coughing, headache, nausea, indigestion and or hiccups.
Tablets are recommended for a course between 3 and 6 months. COST about $400 – $600 for 3 months, low consumption. COST $1000 – $1200 for big pill-poppers. If you use them for 6 months, you can roughly double these figures. At the maximum recommended dosage of 40 tablets a day over 6 months, you will pay out about $4000.
Nicotine Inhaler is a plastic tube that contains a plug loaded with nicotine. It is held like a cigarette, when you inhale the cartridge releases nicotine to relieve the craving. 10mg is the administered strength. Most people tend to use an average of 6 cartridges per day. You cannot use more than 12 a day. Common side effects are irritation in the throat and mouth, and coughing, irritability, sleep disturbances and lightheadedness may also occur. You may also notice dizziness, headache, sore throat, mouth ulcers, vomiting, indigestion or heartburn, sinusitis, hiccups and or nasal congestion.
Nicotine inhalers satisfy the hand-to-mouth routine some smokers crave, and these will COST approximately $1000 to $2000 for an 18 to 20 week course.
The prescription drugs Bupropion (brand names Zyban SR, Clorpax, Prexaton and Bupropion-RL) and varenicline (brand name Champix) can also reduce some nicotine withdrawal symptoms. These drugs must be prescribed by your doctor as they are not suitable for everyone and can often have nasty side effects such nausea, vomiting, headaches, hallucinations.
National Health Service reports have shown that Zyban can be ineffective unless combined with other psychological or group type treatment-for example, hypnosis or support group. People have actually died as a side effect from this drug. The pharmaceutical company warn people that 1 in 1000 will suffer convulsions that could lead to death. A risk that you want to ensure doesn’t happen to you.
