Quotes from this quit smoking video
“There are two classes of nicotine replacement therapy products. The first type is long-acting, such as the nicotine patch. Patches give your brain nicotine throughout the day. We also have short-acting nicotine replacement medicines – such as the gum and lozenge – which allow you to adjust your dose of nicotine throughout the day.”
