NICOTINE GUM ADDICTION
Nicotine gum is one of the most effective ways to give up smoking. However as the gum still contains nicotine there is a possibility of developing nicotine gum addiction.
It should be remembered that nicotine gum is an aid to quitting smoking. It is a tool to help people successfully quit, but some willpower is still required.
People who want to quit smoking must also develop the mindset for kicking the habit.
Studies from drug companies indicate that for most people who decide to use nicotine gum to give up cigarettes will go on to successfully quit smoking and the gum. For some, though, a nicotine gum addiction can develop. However chewing nicotine gum is much safer than smoking and inhaling the dangerous carcinogenic substances like tar, nickel, carbonyl and others that are found in a single cigarette.
There is currently no evidence that such long term usage of nicotine gum is harmful to your health, especially when compared to smoking.
