How well does it work?

People who use the nicotine inhalator are almost twice as likely to quit and stay stopped. Most people who successfully quit smoking use at least six cartridges per day.

When using the inhalator you take in less nicotine at a much slower rate than when smoking. This makes it less addictive and easier to stop using than cigarettes. However, it will be several minutes slower at easing cravings than a cigarette. Over a day, inhaler users typically absorb about one-third of the dose of nicotine that they would get from smoking a pack of cigarettes per day. The dose is similar to that of the 2mg gum. Therefore, more addicted smokers may find higher dosage nicotine replacement products, such as the 4mg gum or lozenge, more suitable.
