Nicogel as a cigarette replacement?

With the nicotine levels in cigarettes at a record high, more and more new products are coming out that only add to nicotine addiction and the latest novelty is Nicogel. Nicogel was designed to bridge the gap for smokers when they find themselves in places where they are not allowed to smoke. More and more these days you are not permitted to smoke in public places, the work place and popular social venues such cinemas, bars and restaurants. Even on your way to a relaxing holiday, you may find yourself gasping for a cigarette in-flight…

The popular question at official Nicogel® website, which got most hits is: "How do you use Nicogel® to help quit smoking?" And the part of the answer is: "Many people have told us they use Nicogel to help them stop smoking all together. This is not what Nicogel was designed for or is indeed marketed for. Nicogel is a cigarette replacement designed to bridge the gaps when you are not allowed to smoke."

Moreover, it seems that Nicogel is trying to help people who might otherwise want to stop smoking to keep their habit up. It's sort of helping them keep their addiction. However, tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, of which nicotine is just one. In addition to tar, there are also carbon monoxide, ammonia, and arsenic. In fact, at least 43 of the chemicals in tobacco smoke are known to cause cancers of the lung, throat, mouth, bladder, and other cancers. In addition to eliminating carcinogens in the lungs and in the air, Nicogel has many advantage over patches and gums, because unlike patches, Nicogel does not offer slow release of its Nicotiana extract; its delivery is typically within a minute and as such more closely mimics the smoking experience.

For many smokers nicotine is not everything; the ritual of lighting up and smoking a cigarette is an addiction in itself. But with the help of Nicogel smoker even do not need to going outside to light up, rub the gel onto your arm and cigarette-satisfaction feeling is no more than a minute away! Therefore, if smoker is going to inject his physical addiction to nicotine with Nicogel, it seems that there is no chance for giving up the smoking addiction.
