Nicotex is short acting drug so will decrease your immediate cravings but along with that you will need long acting nicotine patch application in tapering dosage for 12 weeks

Also medicines like varneciline and bupropion can be started along with these...under supervision of an expert

Hello there.

I can understand your concern. 
Nicotex is just like other nicotine gums.
When ever you feel like smoking, you can chew on one such gum and avoid smoking instead.
It will surely help but you need to have a strong will power as well. Or else nothing will help.
You can consult a psychiatrist in person for de-addiction.
Best regards.
