NiQuitin CQ (2mg)

AdvantagesOnly thing ive tried that works!!

DisadvantagesYou end up addicted to the lozenge, costs more than smoking!

"I had been smoking for four years until I decided to quit. I tried stopping without any aids but failed miserably! Then tried the gum but that didnt help much either! I had depression and anxiety along with a few other mental health disorders and the cigarettes did help with that. Finally though i decided it wasnt worth the risk to my health, despite the fact they helped my mental health and I decided I would try the lozenges after advice from a few ..." Read review

Niquitin CQ Lozenges - Have helped me!

AdvantagesHelps you to quit smoking! I found it helped with food cravings

DisadvantagesFunny taste to begin with

"I was recommended these by my GP when visiting their 'stop smoking' clinic. I found the lozenges very useful and help with any cravings. They come in 4mg for heavier smokers and 2mg for the milder smoker. The flavours are either plain (taste a bit sweet) or mint flavour (Minty!). You are meant to place one between your cheek and gums and alternate between each side of the mouth, they slowly dissolve in about 30 mins or so. The great thing I found ..." Read review

Just started but a lot easier than cold turkey

AdvantagesDefinitely help stop the cravings for cigarettes

DisadvantagesNone that I can think of

"I recently stopped smoking from smoking around 20+ hand made ciggies per day and the first 2 days I went cold turkey. My wife insisted that she buy me some lozenges whilst doing our supermarket shop in Tesco's (I did feel crabby) so we bought them. I'm now on day 5 and finding it a lot easier with the lozenges but also need to find things to do to keep my mind off the horrible things e.g. gardening, cleaning and washing pots (much to my wife's delight ..."

niquitin cq [2mg] are they are good thing??

Advantagesno bad smelling clothes and ashtray breathe

Quick review of NiQuitin CQ Lozenge

"I stopped smoking 13 weeks ago after a 40 year addiction to the Sticks, Found patches not to be suitable so i decided to go onto the 2mg Lozenges. I found them to be very good in giving me my nicotine hit but 13 weeks on i am as addicted to these as i was to the Cigs. Plus point. I am saving money and don't smell like an old ashtray. Minus point. Still sucking the Lozenges and the addiction is almost as bad as the Cigs were. I did smoke 30 a day, And TBH i can't say i feel any better but they say i will !! Also i have noticed i get breathless rather quickly now.
