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!

    Well, you can get it a lot cheaper at the authorized distributor

    There is a site for Nicogel (r),

    Just to make it clear, because some people are posting erroneous information about this product on the web. This is not a bath gel. You carry it with you in your purse or pocket. You rub it when the urge to smoke strikes you, but you are in a place like a non-smoking restaurant, or a plane, and some people are using it as a cigarette replacement therapy (NRT), although it was not designed as such.

    Luckily, it is not a prescription medicine, it is classified as a cosmetic, so you can just buy it mail order and give it to friends as a Christmas Gift, or better make it year round, if their smoke bothers you.

    Send an email to us at if you want to know more about NICOGEL, prices, etc. It IS cheaper to get it from this authorized distributor
