NICORETTE  Gum HELP NEEDED –can you bring down some for me? Empty NICORETTE Gum HELP NEEDED –can you bring down some for me?

Post by Joyceinmexico on Mon Jul 09, 2012 7:25 am

I quit smoking for 23 years on Nicorette Gum. I went through an intensive stressful time when I moved down here 1 ½ years ago and started smoking again. I MUST QUIT and hate what smoking is doing to me.

I can only find MINT Nicorette (something I do not like as much as the original) at one pharmacy in Chapala. If you know any local pharmacies that have it stocked let me know.

If you have any Nicorette gum you are not using, I will buy it from you. If you know a local pharmacy that sells it (original, but mint will do) let me know.

IF YOU ARE VISITING THE STATES and can bring me down some of the original non mint flavored Nicorette gun, I will pay for it and your time and effort,

Please do not suggest other methods because the gum worked before and will work again.

PM if you can help. Thanks in advance

The Farmacia Express just east of the convenience store in San Antonio (Lakeside) did have it before & if she doesn't she'll have it for you the next day.

That's Farmacia Express II and they have it. Just past the OXXO and before Hole-in-One.

As of about two months ago, these products are now banned from entering Mexico. Check everywhere you can and buy up what was imported before this went into effect. chico

Chico, does Mexico manufacture and distribute Nicorette gum under a different name? Seems really odd to ban this product.

Jim, I do not really know. All that I know is that a friend of mine who lived on it to help her withdrawal for many, many years, told me this and she is going ballistics and her husband is going nuts. Now, a second poster. Same problem. I Googled it, but could not find the information. This same person posted the same question on TOB and other people also chimed in that it was no longer available here. I know, it sounds too strange to be true and I should have posted it as rumor and not fact. I apologize for not doing so, but would sure be interested in if anyone finds anyone that can import it any longer, as their current supplies run out. Let's find out. I just posted it on the Mirador, where it will get a lot more attention chico

45 years and I cannot quit. Kudos to you and god bless your wife with the hell you know you are putting her through. The rumor that I also heard by more than one person,was that any nicotine contained item would be confiscated if found in baggage. You know, the more I write about this the stranger it sounds. Hope we can get to the bottom of this and get you all some nicorettes, while I just continue with my emphysema. cough. cough. Best wishes. chico

MANY things that are available here are banned from being brought into Mexico. Coffee, for example, is difficult to import. Many drugs. Nicotine patches and gum are readily available here.

Nail on head chico, people get hooked on nicorette, which is far more expensive than cigarettes.

Yes, and others choose to double their food intake... whatever it takes.

Well, maybe so, but there are other bodily functions which may be adversely affected.

When I quit my 3 pack a day habit cold turkey and long ago.......I chewed an inordinate amount of sugarless gum for relief. It helped, so if all else fails....

I've heard that nicotine addition is stronger that that of heroin. Good luck on quitting. Not funatall.

Congrats, Jim. Keep up the good work. I did stop in and talk to Claudia this morning, and as far as she knows, there is no such ban and pointed to 12 boxes of Nicorette gum sitting on her shelves. chico

The so-called "ban" may be a limit on the personal import of nicotine products, just like you can only bring in X number of boxes of cigarettes back with you. Sounds like a rumor that got all out of proportion.

NICORETTE  Gum HELP NEEDED –can you bring down some for me? Empty original Poster update

Post by Joyceinmexico on Wed Jul 11, 2012 5:23 pm

Thanks to all who offered to help and put their 2 cents in. I found 1 pkg Nicorette mint at the pharmacy on the square in Ajijic- 1 pkg mint 2mg.
I am looking for Cinnamon or the regular flavored Nicorette 4mg or 2mg and left word to see if they can get it for me because TO ME it looks like it is available and NOT illegal.

My purpose is that the regular has a "bite" to it and then I go to cinnamon gum non nicotine. This worked before and I WILL do it again. Just under a few big stressors but will be smoke free soon. Meanwhile I am collecting all I can get.

By the way, there are great instructions on how to use it on the main Nicorette
website. 2 pack a day people should start with 4mg gum not 2 mg.

Now my computer is acting bad. Ashtray is still here but soon in the basura.
