Before e-cigs (the efficacy of which, as far as a stop-smoking aid, is still TBD and not recommended), and before the patch (flesh-toned, plastic-y medical pasties), there was a cutout dress-friendly, refreshing mint option for those looking to break the habit—nicotine Chiclets. They came highly recommended by Tamara Mellon during her recent Top Shelf interview:
"Nicorette is always in my bag because it totally works. It's the only way I gave up smoking and doesn't have any of the cancerous things that are in cigarettes. I've been chewing it for two years!"
