Where can i get gum?

Readers of my last few posts will know the reason that im staying with NRT for a while longer.

Any ideas where i can get Nicorette Gum at a reaonable price? My doctor gives me a prescription for 30! yep just 30 a fortnight for the £7 prescription cost! Tight a***es.

I need some more and dont see the Doc till weds.

In Herts England

Thanks

Hi Superdrug were doing an offer, not sure if still are but they were doing the fruity chewing gum, You should ask your doctor for more, cos when I went for patches she gave me two wks, I said I could get back on next visit as work away (not true) and she give me four weeks... Shouldnt have to do that but prescription prices so high I was not going back every 2 wks, when I could have a month on one prescription for £7..:cool: Kaz

Be careful buying gum on the cheap-lots of copies out there-you will just have to cough up and get them from Boots-they often do special offers anyway-remember your fags cost £5.00 a pack anyway!!!! :)

Gum is a short term thing so it won't break the bank- i was on gum for the first 3 months and paid for them myself-couldn't do with visiting a doctor who didn't understand my addiction to niocotine, dictating how i should stop!!!!:mad:

Thanks, i smoked tobacco cheap from abroad so giving up is costing me more.

Boots wouldnt sell them to me without a prescription??

Will pop to Asda chemist, just been told by a friend they sell over the counter apparently.

Only need for monday, then il get doc to give me more on prescription

Thanks

Hi B B Fags :D

I know you can get them from Morrison's off the shelf, you don't even have to go to the Pharmacy there they're with the other over the counter Medicines

Have you tried Ebay? I have bought 2 lots of inhalators off there and there is always plenty of gum there. Obviously watch who you are buying off and check feedback etc.

Superdrug do the 2mgs packs of 105 in cinnamint for 3.99.

Like you, I smoked cheep tabacco and I'm stopping on a budget. If 2mgs isn't strong enough for you, you could chew 2 at a time! But to be honest, I bought them by accident thinking that they were the 4mg and didn't notice the difference untill tonight. They helped me just as well as the stronger ones. I was buying the fruit ones but the offer ran out and I wondered if I would like them as much, not being a lover of cinnamon. They taste quite fruity.

Hopeful
