Offered in the great-tasting Mint Nicorette flavor, the 4mg Nicorette Gum strength is recommended for smokers who smoke their 1st cigarette within 30 minutes of waking up. Nicorette Gum also allows users to chew a 2nd piece of nicotine gum within the hour if they are experiencing strong or frequent cigarette cravings. Smokers can utilize the "Chew and Park" method of nicotine gum. Chew the Nicorette Gum until you can feel a tingling sensation in your mouth. Then "park" the nicotine gum between your cheek & gums.
