Commented on Ulcerative Colitis and Nicotine 8 years ago

I was a smoker most of my life. 13 yrs old to 47 yrs old. When i stopped smoking I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. I started to smoke again when I heard of the studies on nicotine as a therapy. Immediately all symptoms went away. No other medications. Since then I quit smoking and turned to nicotine lozenges and the effects were the same, no symptoms. I have had no symptoms now on lozenges for 10 years without any other medication. I am however very fond of my lozenges (addictive). And I am not sure what a dose I could take a day that would be effective. For example 1 or 2 lozenges a day? Currently I take approximately 24. But I am symptom free for 10 years.
