One Addiction For Another: Nicotine Gel

By David Ponce

Cancer sticks are so yesterday. All the cool kids these days are rubbing themselves silly with Nicogel: nicotine gel!

It’s made by some company called Nicogel Limited, and it’s being marketed as “a new way to quit smoking”.


It’s a water soluble gel containing an aqueous extract of Nicotiana spp at 3mg/ml. And I think it gets under the radar of some regulatory body or other by billing itself as a “cosmetic”. Don’t quote me on that one, I may be wrong.

In any case, one push of the pump if you’re a light smoker and two if you’re an everyday chimney. The nicotine, unlike patches, gets in your system quickly. And a bottle is £9.99, or $18.

No word on whether using this instead of KY is frowned upon. I say, go for it!
