First step to #SamaSamaStop Smoking: Nicorette partners with mQuit Services in conjunction with World No Tobacco Day to help 25,000 smokers in Malaysia

In Malaysia, it is estimated that more than 27,000 Malaysians’ deaths annually are related to smoking[1].


The thought of giving up smoking can seem daunting, but with the help of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) products like Nicorette, smokers can quit for good. Nicorette’s NRT products help to relieve withdrawal symptoms and reduce nicotine cravings, which people often experience when they first stop smoking. Apart from that, NRT can also assist users to cut down the number of cigarettes they smoke.

CHIN KEAT CHYUAN, Managing Director of Johnson & Johnson, shared that the company’s credo outlines its responsibility of putting the needs and wellbeing of the people it serves first. “As one of the largest healthcare companies in the world, we are committed in carrying out our responsibility in helping Malaysians become healthier, and one of the ways is by supporting better access to care around the world.

In conjunction with World No Tobacco Day, Nicorette joins hands with mQuit Services and the Ministry of Health (MOH) to encourage smokers in Malaysia to kickstart a healthier lifestyle. This campaign aligns with the objective of mQuit Services, an accredited smoking cessation programme by MOH. Through this collaboration, we hope to achieve the target of helping 25,000 smokers in Malaysia in taking the first step to #SamaSamaStop smoking. By simply visiting any participating pharmacies, they can obtain a free consultation by the pharmacist and get a customized quit plan with a starter kit,” he explained.

Nicorette comes in two forms to ensure it can accommodate different types of smokers’ needs to help them stop smoking:
  • Nicorette Invisi Transdermal Patch – Controlled amounts of nicotine absorb through skin into the bloodstream, helping to control nicotine cravings for up to 16 hours.
  • Nicorette Gum – Works fast to relieve cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Available in two different strengths: 2mg or 4mg.
