Addicted to nicotine
Smoking is addictive, not least because of nicotine. There are also substances in tobacco that enhance the addictive effect, and there is also the habit of lighting a cigarette.

That is why there are alternative products that contain nicotine with the aim of leaving behind the habituation to cigarettes. For example, there are e-cigarettes with different concentrations of nicotine to reduce the addiction. Nicotinell also sells a number of products to quit smoking. Always pay attention to the dosage, it is possible to get an overdose which can be accompanied by severe physical complaints.
