    Hi fellow-community members,

    I thought that I would share a quick little fact this morning about Nicotine and Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT):

    Nicotine is not one of the cancer causing agents in cigarettes - it's the tar, carbon monoxide and some of the other 4000+ chemicals in cigarettes that can cause cancer. The nicotine that you get from Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) products are clean and delivered in a safer route. NRTs help get the nicotine into your body but without the added dangers of additional chemicals - you avoid inhaling more than 70 cancer-causing chemicals and the poisonous carbon monoxide found in tobacco smoke.

    HI Nadia

    I was an NRT user for a long run, wile I was getting training to quit for good! Know I am not using it anymore! I am ok, a bit emotional and irritable in a good way, in control!

    My Goal is to be free! I am doing it, after more than 3 years!

    The point here is without the help of Nrt, I probably could not quit as longer I did! It was less hard to quit the Nrt.
