A new study finds nicotine replacement therapy is safer for Snowy Monaro residents than smoking.

The University of Newcastle study also reveals doctors can be confident in prescribing the therapy for pregnant women.

The ABC reports current Australian and New Zealand guidelines suggest pregnant women use nicotine replacement if they are unable to quit without medication.

But the study shows through a recent survey of Australian GPs and obstetricians that 25 per cent of participants have never prescribed the practise during pregnancy.

Study co-author Dr Gillian Gould says nicotine in the therapy is more regulated, and not absorbed as much, as the nicotine in cigarettes.

Dr Gould also says researchers need to be able to have a discussion with women about the risks and benefits.

The competition will close at 5pm on Thursday December 14th, and the winning entry will be announced prior to the school holidays.
