What is Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT)?

NRT provides a safe, controlled way of administering nicotine without all the other harmful chemicals contained in cigarettes smoke. It is shown to double your chances of quitting successfully over going cold turkey. NRT is safe to use in pregnancy and is recommended to prevent harm to the unborn baby from smoking.

  • The nicotine skin patch is designed to deliver a background level of nicotine.
  • Nicotine chewing gum, nasal spray or inhalers deliver it more quickly and can be used when you get a sudden urge for a cigarette.
  • The patches and gums come in different strengths to suit you.
  • The objective is to stop cigarettes as soon as you start NRT and then reduce the use of NRT over about 8-12 weeks, to gently wean yourself off your dependence on nicotine.

What are other Non-nicotine quit treatments?

Non-nicotine quit treatments reduce the negative sensations of nicotine withdrawal so you do not miss having a cigarette so badly. It also blocks the pleasant sensations of smoking so having a cigarette is less enjoyable.

  • Bupropion(Zyban®) helps reduce intense withdrawal symptoms from nicotine. Available on prescription only.
  • Varenicline(Champix®) works by blocking the nicotine receptors in the brain, making cigarettes less pleasurable.  Ask your doctor if you are eligible for a fully funded 12-week Champix course.
  • Nortriptyline(Norpress®) helps reduce negative nicotine withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety and stress. Available on prescription only. 

Non-nicotine medications must be prescribed by your doctor. They can be useful, and your doctor will explain how to use them. Non-nicotine medications are not suitable for pregnant women.
