Worried about the cost of nicotine replacement products (NRP) like the patch, lozenge, or gum? Donít be! Nicotine replacement products usually cost about the same as what youíre currently spending on cigarettes. It may even be less! If you can afford to continue to smoke; you can afford to buy NRP.
