Ways to Quit Smoking - Patches

What is the nicotine patch?
It is a small patch; similar to a band-aid that gradually releases nicotine through the skin throughout the day. Typically the patch would be applied to the upper arm, but anywhere above the waist will work. The patch lasts for 24 hours and then a new one is needed.

You can get NicoDerm online from Pharmacy Discounter.


How does it work?
Using a nicotine patch satisfies your craving for a cigarette by providing the body with small amounts of nicotine. By itself this will not cure you of the smoking habit. The dosage in the patch must be gradually reduced until your body no longer craves the nicotine. At this point you have cured yourself of the physical addiction to cigarettes.

Is it Successful?
You should use the patch over a period of three months or more for it to be effective. People who do this have been able to quit smoking. However you still need to overcome the mental desire for a cigarette, especially when you are stressed, or in social situations where you used to indulge yourself with a smoke.

Are There Any Side Effects?
The patch is safe but some side effects can occur. These may include:

  • Headaches

  • Dizziness

  • Upset stomach

  • Diarrhea

  • Weakness

  • Blurred vision
