  • ​​​​​​There are many types of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) available such as patches, tablets, gum, inhaler, lozenges, and spray. You can get some over-the-counter from your pharmacist.
  • There are also several medications to help you quit, such as Varenicline™ or Bupropion™. These are offered by prescription from your doctor, pharmacist, or nurse practitioner.​
  • Many people find that either NRT or medication is very helpful when they have the urge to smoke and that their success in quitting can be doubled with medication.
​Talk to your doctor, nurse practitioner or pharmacist, to find a medication that will work best for you.
