A new study published in the Journal of Addiction Medicine suggests that smoking may be one of the health hazards of long term use of nicotine lozenges. It was found that long-term smokers who used the nicotine lozenges also had a higher risk of developing heart disease, stroke and cancer. The study concluded that there is a link between the two, but they still have a lot of work to do before they can actually recommend the product. There are also a number of different products available to help smokers quit, and it is very hard to determine which product will actually help them stop.
Other studies have found that long term users are less likely to quit. Studies show that long-term users are more likely to try smoking again after they quit. It seems that many long term users of nicotine lozenges are just like any other smoker looking for a “quick fix” or a way to get through the day without having to deal with the physical withdrawal symptoms. While there is no doubt that the nicotine lozenges can make a person feel more comfortable and relaxed, they also give the user a rush that can make him or her want to light up a cigarette right away.
Most long term users will not stop completely and will smoke again after a few days of taking the lozenges. This leads to the question of whether it is a better option to deal with the physical withdrawal symptoms by taking medication or not. The study does not actually recommend nicotine lozenges but only recommends that people who are at high risk should avoid using these products. They also suggest that those who are at low risk should only use this product for a limited period of time.
