    Hello Tanyat,

    How long ago were you smoking a pack of cigarettes?  If it was just recent, you could use the patch- and when dosing, choose the amount closest to what you have been smoking recently.  Otherwise if you have been smoking 6 cpd for a while, you can use the gum or inhaler as needed.  And as you taper down, replace each cigarette with either product.  

    Hope that helps somewhat.  You can also connect with a pharmacist if you aren't sure.  And if having a hard time, you can also increase if aren't using enough nicotine.  

    Let us know how your doing.  

    All the best, 

    Marianne
