If you feel the urge to smoke within 30 minutes of waking in the morning or smoke more than ten cigarettes daily, you will likely develop nicotine dependence.
For patients that align with this category, NRT is often recommended for smoking cessation.
Studies show that nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) is one of the most effective treatments for smoking cessation, doubling quit rates in many patients.

Research has identified smoking as one of the leading causes of preventable disease, disability and mortality.
Smoking affects your body internally and can lead to heart disease, cancer and neurological disorders.
The harmful toxins and chemicals in cigarettes prevent essential nutrients and oxygen from reaching your skin, often resulting in premature wrinkling and dull, saggy skin.
With many effective treatments available, there’s never been a better time to prioritise your health and quit smoking today.
Although quitting smoking can be a daunting challenge, combination treatments and nicotine replacement therapy have shown promising results as aids to quit smoking.
Nicotine patches and short-acting forms of NRT are safe and deliver lower doses of nicotine than cigarettes.
When creating a treatment plan, your assigned clinician will consider pre-existing health conditions, family history and current health records (including your most recent blood pressure results).
At hub.health, our team specialise in smoking and will prescribe a treatment based on the needs of each patient.
Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)
NRT involves providing your body with low, therapeutic doses of nicotine, to reduce symptoms associated with withdrawal. This controlled release of nicotine allows you to slowly eliminate the chemical from your body without the harmful effects of smoking tobacco, while simultaneously reducing cravings to smoke.
There are over-the-counter forms of nicotine replacement therapy such as lozenges, patches, inhalators, mouth sprays and gum.
The right course of quit smoking treatment will be determined by your medical team. In many cases, combination therapy is initially recommended.
This type of therapy involves utilising both a long-lasting NRT treatment and a faster-acting dispersal method to achieve successful results. As an example, NRT patches may be used as a long-lasting treatment in combination with products such as lozenges or gum, as required.
After considering your medical history and previous attempts to quit smoking in the past, your medical team may recommend pharmacotherapy as an aid to cease smoking. Pharmacotherapy is generally recommended only to those who are being treated for nicotine dependence.
The type of treatment you will be prescribed will be determined by a discussion between yourself and your assigned clinician. As with all available treatment options, there is a minimal chance of side effects, so it’s important to discuss any concerns with your medical team. Products administered for pharmacotherapy act on neurotransmitters to alleviate cravings and symptoms associated with nicotine withdrawal.
This form of treatment is considered to be safe in most cases and highly effective when combined with behavioural modification techniques.

How does smoking treatment work with hub.health?
hub.health uses a secure digital health platform to provide convenient access to smoking cessation treatment from an Australian based team of medical experts.
After completing the online questionnaire, a team member will determine if you’re a candidate for nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). If you’re eligible, we’ll organise fast delivery to your door. If your assigned practitioner identifies a potential risk in issuing NRT treatment, they’ll likely refer you to an in-person GP for further review.
What smoking treatments do you offer?
In most cases, nicotine replacement therapy is the most effective treatment for quitting smoking. Although the body still receives nicotine through a different dispersal method, it is a controlled, low-dose release that is only used for a short period to assist in the symptoms associated with nicotine withdrawal.
