When you’re a kid learning to ride a bike, training wheels can help you get your momentum going while you master balance and control. In a similar way, nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) can help tobacco users in their journey to become and stay tobacco-free.
If you or someone you care about is trying to quit tobacco, then explore NRT options. A doctor may be able to prescribe a nasal spray, inhaler or pill. You’ll also be able to find several over-the-counter options in the form of patches, gum and lozenges. Talk with a doctor or pharmacist to learn more, and carefully read the packaging.
While these options can help with cravings, your chances of success are best when your strategy includes other support, too. That’s why the Healthy Lifestyles Tobacco-Free program gives you access to an online community of quitters, personal health coaching over the phone and more. Explore the many resources you have today.
Here’s to some healthy momentum!
