    RE: Patches to stop

    I have tried the patches works great. Sometimes they burn my skin not sure why that is. For it to be effective you really need the entire step down program. I subsequently started back, but getting back on track. Full day of smoke free

        Yes, I use the patches daily. They really help alot. However, I start my day very early, and the patch usually has stopped working by the time I go to bed at night.

    RE: Patches to stop

    I used the patch years ago. It worked for me back then. I stopped smoking a while, then started again. I went back to the patch and it was burning me. I had red squares for days on every place I put the patch. So...I didn't quit. I have been smoking again for 8 years now and quit one and a half weeks ago using the nicotine lozenges. They have been extremely helpful and I experience very few cravings. I also do not have many withdrawal symptoms. The only one I have is occasional irritation, but that is more mental than physical. Good luck if you are still working on quitting. I am definitely never smoking again myself.

    RE: Patches to stop

    I have been on the patch before and it worked for about 6 months. (I gave in). But I am back on the patch and have been for 10 days now. So far so good. It works but it becomes a mental challenge. Once you can manage that part I do believe it works.

    The risks from nicotine, particularly related to increased cancer odds, mean that nicotine patches should not be considered benign or harmless, but that researchers may someday find safe ways to use them. Transdermal nicotine replacement therapy can be a very effective way to help you quit smoking once and for all.
