I tried everything! Patches, gum, inhalers. This is the only thing that worked for me! Feels like spraying mace in you nose the first couple of times but that goes away and you get use to it. Over 2 years quit!

I would like to offer my personal experience of the nicotine nasal spray as I think potential users should be aware of the harsh reality of this product and the dangers of using this product. I do not think that anywhere in the internet provides a full and comprehensive review of this particular product. This product while satisfying the urges of nicotine withdrawal, has major potential to make the user dependent on the nasal spray. While the desire to smoke generally disappears, the addiction and dependence is on the spray. It is replacing one evil with another in my opinion. The spray has terrible side effects, which again are not fully disclosed anywhere on the internet in my opinion. I will go through the side effects: 1. Severe congestion unlike anything experienced with other NRT products. The spray causes chest and lung congestion as well as nasal congestion. Catarrh becomes immediate as soon as the spray is used. Even by using just one small spray in one nostril. Combatting the congestion becomes a daily chore and nightmare. Relying on cough medicines such as Guaifenesin, Actifed tablets - because the congestion and catarrh is so severe that it inhibits breathing. And sudafed nasal spray to unblock the nose. Again, a blocked nose is experienced immediately after just one spray in the nostril. 2. Immediately after using the spray, the catarrh is so bad that one must either spit it out in a sink or continuously carry tissues with them. Runny nose is a constant - immediately after using the spray but also some time after using the spray. Constantly having to wipe the nose results in skin chafing around the nasal passage area and outside the nostrils and in the worst case, bleeding around the nose. Resulting in again - having to constantly apply cream around the affected area. 3. Perhaps the most severe and the most concerning - nose bleeds. Although some have reported that this only happens when they start using the spray, it is possible that nose bleed

I had been a smoker (~1 pack/day) for about 20 years and I ADORED SMOKING, but have decided I want to live a better, healthier life for myself and for my children and hopefully future grandchildren. I began using this product 29 days ago and have been smoke-free for 29 days. I have tried many different smoking cessation products but was pleased to find that this one worked from day 1! If you are serious about quitting, or even tossing it around in your mind this product is worth a try.

Literally, unbelievably effective in quitting smoking. Absolutely indispensable when it comes to cessation programs. I had tried every other option available, the pills, patches, gum, lozenges, the inhaler, electronic cigarettes & yes, even hypnosis. I tell you this was by far in its own class of effectiveness. Almost effortless!!! I say "almost" for the simple fact that the 1st day or so the spray burns the inside of the nose & tastes a bit like pepper, But both symptoms alleviate within the 1st 24 hours. After that its nothing but pure confidence through accomplishment. No kidding, from the time I opened the box & primed the pump on the 1st bottle, it was bye bye smokies :) Not even one smoke since & possibly zero (0) withdrawl or side effect. Pfizer, you guys are no less then genius. THANK YOU!!! From my whole family, 25 yr - 2 1/2 pack a day smoker to 6 yrs smoke free in just one office visit.

Within 24 hours of starting to use the spray, it caused my nose to bleed excessively. The spray begins to cause a painful side effect despite my usage being 1 time per day. It has begun to destroy the membrane in my nose.
