Addiction to Nicotine Nasal Sprays

I am wondering if anyone has come across a client with an addiction to nicotine nasal sprays. I am used to treating clients for smoking cessation, but haven't come across this particular issue before. I assume that the techniques would be similar to cigarette addiction - e.g. get to the root of why the person feels like they cannot cope without the nicotine in their bodies (what they believe it is doing for them), reframe that and then perhaps use Parts Technique to find a better strategy to alleviate what comes up (stress, anxiety?).

Does anyone else have any additional thoughts?

Many thanks
