Nicotine lozenges are easy to use, and they work quickly to control cravings. They help keep your mouth busy so you don't reach for a cigarette, and they’re not as obvious as nicotine gum. They are sold over the counter, so you don’t need a prescription. The lozenges come in many different flavors, so it’s easy to find a kind you like.
