We are still struggling with our smoking habit. Currently the weather has been kind to us, so smoking outside isn’t such a huge deal at this moment, but any week now it is going to change and we will be forced to have a cigarette in the pouring rain outside the front of the house.
We just want to stop smoking.
I am very open to any and all new products out there, in the hope that something will help us quit. When I heard about NicoBloc I obviously wanted to try it out.
So what is NicoBloc*?
NicoBloc is a coloured fluid that you apply to the filter of the cigarette immediately before smoking. Typically you use the product over a six-week period to prepare you to quit smoking by reducing gradually your nicotine intake to allow your body to adjust gently to physical changes that occur during the drug withdrawal.
Whilst other systems help overcome the withdrawal syndrome once you have stopped smoking, NicoBloc prepares you physically and mentally and helps you before you break the habit completely.
The NicoBloc solution is not taken orally but is put on the filter of the cigarette without significantly changing its taste. Because of this, it does not have any counter-indications or interfere with any medication, so it can be used by anyone, including pregnant women.
You keep smoking but slowly reduce your tobacco consumption until you stop entirely.
There are no withdrawal symptoms, as NicoBloc helps your body adapt gradually to the reduction of nicotine levels at the same time as the number of cigarettes smoked is also being reduced.
The NicoBloc solution is not ingested; you apply it to the cigarette filter.
NicoBloc blocks the ingestion of nicotine and harmful tar, which causes cancer, by up to 99%.
It does not have any counter-indications or produce undesired effects.
You will receive a:
– – 15ml vial of NicoBlock liquid, which will last you up to 2 weeks
– – Instruction on how to use it
How to apply NicoBloc?
When applying more than one drop at a time, you should follow the steps described one by one. That is to say, you should not apply all the drops without following the 4 steps below.
Make a deep indentation into the cigarette filter with the bottle nozzle.
Squeeze the correct amount of NicoBloc fluid into the filter immediately before you smoke it. Follow the complete application process 2 or 3 times as required, applying one drop each time, rather than applying double or treble size drops. Allow each drop to soak in before applying the next drop.
Use the nozzle to spread the fluid, so that it covers the total filter surface.
Squeeze the filter a few times; this helps it to absorb the fluid.
Light the cigarette and immediately take a strong first draw, before smoking the cigarette as normal.
The NicoBloc solution should be applied to the filter immediately prior to smoking.
It should not be applied to all the cigarettes in the pack at the same time.
The solution remains active for about 5 minutes after being applied.
Thereafter, it dries out and becomes ineffective.
How much of NicoBloc should you apply?
One NicoBloc Drop – 33% Nicotine and Tar is blocked – reducing the addiction to Nicotine and the harmful effects of tar.
Two NicoBloc Drops – 66% Nicotine and Tar is blocked – further reducing the addiction to cigarettes.
Three NicoBloc Drops – 99% Nicotine and Tar normally consumed is blocked and by this stage the consumer trials prove that 60% of users have given up smoking.
So does it work?
I think it actually does work. After 3 weeks of using it I don’t crave cigarettes so much and I definitely smoke less. I am still on only 1 drop each cigarette, as I chose to take it easy and reduce the amount once I feel more confident I can deal with it. NicoBloc doesn’t change the taste of your cigarette at all in fact I am sure if someone would pass you an already made and lit cigarette, you wouldn’t even know the difference. The only downside is that I have to prepare each and every cigarette straight before I want to smoke it. This isn’t always possible for example on a long drive I would roll a few cigarettes before setting off here I cannot take advantage of the NicoBloc liquid… so I have to try and use NicoBloc as often as I can.
I am not sure if this would be a good idea from a business perspective as the cost of packaging would go up exponentially but what about selling them in single doses of NicoBloc in some form of one use delivery system? It might be more convenient and quicker to use and would always ensure the correct dose. I mention this because it can sometimes be difficult from the chunky bottle supplied to get just a single drop. If in a rush or multitasking in this modern hectic lifestyle it is all too easy to overdo it.
If you are struggling to quit smoking and you are determined to succeed I think NicoBloc might be just what you are looking for. Yes, it does require some “work” but it also gives visible results in a fairly short amount of time.
If you decide to take this road, stick with it and good luck!
