London: Popstar Jessica Simpson is addicted to nicotine chewing gums though she has never smoked a cigarette in her life.

Nicotine chewing gums are used as an aid by smokers who want to quit smoking and Simpson started using the product accidentally when her close friend`s mother gave it to her, reported a news website.

"I am addicted to Nicorette gum. Never in my life have
I smoked. The first time I ever chewed a piece of Nicorette
gum one of my close friends` mother gave it to me. I think she
thought she was giving me a piece of regular gum," Simpson

"I was chewing it and it was like a party in my mouth. It was like fireworks and `Oh my God, I`m talking a million miles per hour and I love this gum and what kind of gum is this? I have to have this gum!," she said.

30-year-old singer said that these chewing gums give her the energy equivalent to three Red Bulls energy drinks. "It`s Nicorette and it gives me energy, it`s like drinking three Red Bulls," she said.
