Rated 5 out of 5¬†by Njenn Works Great
Tried awhile back didn't do well but realized I didn't do well because I wasn't ready. Tried again and fully quit after step 1 works aswome!!! For me just keeping the patches around after step 1 helped just in case but never needed them again feels like I didn't just stop after 15 years.

No joke I started smoking at age 13 tried it when I turned 42. The thing is so good they need to come up with one for drug addiction I got up for work on a monday put on a patch, was good all day. The next morning did the same thing, well I was sweeting and it came off about 9AM. Havent smoke since from 2 packs a day to none. Please do yourself the favor

Rated 5 out of 5¬†by TLADY001 IT WORKS
Hi how are yall doing i am 30 years old and i been smoking for over 10 years and i finally realize it was time to stop and i really didnt think these patches would work. I had these patches for about a week before i tried them and when i put that first patch on i knew it was going to work i didnt even think about a cigarette anymore. I was smoking almost a pack a day so i tried step 1 21mg. They kind of expensive but they do work .

Rated 5 out of 5¬†by copenhagen Works for quitting smokeless tobacco
I've dipped smokeless tobacco for 20 years. Needed to quit and tried several times cold turkey, that didn't work. The patch does work but the rush wears off in about an hour after putting on but makes the cravings easier to deal with. Yes dreams are extremely vivid with it on in bed. recommend taking it off at night. Also, don't worry about trying to follow the program exactly. I took it for about twice as long as recommended, costs a fortune but works if you want to quit. So any smokers out there reading this and know of someone who chews tobacco, recommend this. Off brands for some reason don't work as well as nicoderm.

Rated 4 out of 5¬†by Nathan the ex-smoker It is effective, but watch the dosage.
First, a little about me. I am 21, have been a half-pack a day smoker for three years. My poison of choice was menthol ultra light 100's (can't name brand). The product states you should start with this if you smoke 10 or more cigarettes per day, but you might want to go straight to step 2 if you smoke weaker cigarettes or if you smoke just about 10 cigarettes a day. The step 1 patch was too strong for me, and I experienced nausea and weakness (Nicotine OD). I pulled a McGyver and applied dust to about 50% of the patch to reduce the absorption rate and it works great now. It is somewhat fast acting, but the gum will work faster. You will notice some effects after about one hour, and blood nicotine will peak between 3-6 hours after application. So plan ahead, this won't give you the instant hit like a cigarette would. I don't know about nightmares, but I have trouble sleeping with it on, so I take it off before going to bed. The biggest problem is irritation of skin, where the application site will turn red, heat up, and itch. Annoying, but not surprising given that nicotine is highly toxic. It won't eliminate cravings, but it makes them a lot easier to endure. Oh and I don't know what they are talking about when they say you gain weight. I've been losing weight. I hope this helps, and good luck to you.

Rated 5 out of 5¬†by raylynn Love this patch
I have been using this product for 6 days now. I really have to say that I'm amazed with it. I'm 31 and have been smoking since I was 16. The first 3 days I was a little on the edge. Not bad enough to lit one up though.I would not recommend sleeping with it on. I made that mistake the first night slepping with it. the nightmares were terrible!!! I find that when a craving comes breathe deep and say this too shall pass. i wish everyone luck who tries quitting.I have it set on april 20th i will reward myself and go shopping.
