    I puzzled over this bit until I realised big pharma's largely ineffective NRT products had already been approved (and often approved for subsidisation) as only being slightly more effective than unassisted cold-turkey. So they don't want to give the impression they would like to permanently maintain smokers on NRT, just to have them try & fail (within the 12 month limit) multiple times. 10 failures of 9 months each is still a bucket load of NRT they can sell to each smoker (before tempting them with a 'new & improved blueberry flavour' NRT, in any case).
