PowerPoint Presentation:

Quitting is a process and smoking is tempting, so there may come a point when you have a “slip up” and have a cigarette. These “slip ups” typically occur within the first three months of quitting and can be discouraging. Mistakes Happen ….. …..

PowerPoint Presentation:

Mistakes Happen Remember that quitting is not a lost cause, one cigarette is better than a whole pack. However, keep in mind that one cigarette can lead back to a lifelong habit. One small setback doesn’t make you a smoker again, remember your dedication to quitting and how you feel as a smoke-free person.

Don’t Give Up:

Learn from this experience and make sure you realize and stay away from whatever triggered your relapse. Always maintain your routine and keep using your medications and/or seeing your doctor. Don’t Give Up

You Can Get Over It and Move On! ~ Do not be too hard on yourself. ~ But don’t be too easy on yourself either. ~ Always remember that just one WILL hurt.

Nicotine Replacement Therapy:

Nicotine Replacement Therapy Additional Assistance 7

Nicotine Replacement Therapy:

Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) releases nicotine into your body without the other harmful chemicals found in tobacco. You should always use nicotine replacement therapy WITH a tobacco cessation program, and never on its own. Nicotine Replacement Therapy

PowerPoint Presentation:

Nicotine Replacement Therapy Nicotine Substitutes – the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved five different types of nicotine replacement therapy: Nicotine Patches Gum Nasal Spray Inhalers Lozenges .

Nicotine Replacement Therapy:

Nicotine Replacement Therapy 3 4 5 2 1

PowerPoint Presentation:

Nicotine Patches Patches are applied directly to the skin and give a safe, measured dose of nicotine through the skin. Patches come in varying strengths, and you can buy them either with or without a prescription. Popular Brands: Nicoderm -CQ, Novartis.

Gum:

Nicotine gum is a nicotine replacement product which administers nicotine through gum. Chew gum 1 piece at a time (no more than 24 pieces a day) when you feel the urge to have a cigarette. When it starts to tingle, put the gum next to your cheek until it no longer tingles. Then continue chewing until the tingle returns. Popular Brand: Nicorette Gum

PowerPoint Presentation:

Nicotine Nasal Spray is useful for many highly dependent smokers because it provides a rapid dose of nicotine through the nasal membrane. Spray once in each nostril no more than 40 times per day. The nasal spray, unlike the patch or gum, is only available by prescription. Nasal Spray ….. …..

Inhalers:

Inhalers Risk of addiction to an inhaler is low. Use the inhaler as you would a cigarette: inhaling deeply when you have the urge to smoke. Nicotine inhalers are only available by prescription.

Lozenges:

Lozenges Lozenges work well for those who want to be more private about their smoking habits. Lozenges work quickly to send nicotine to the brain by sucking on a hard candy and its use is similar to the gum.
