Niquitin 14mg Patch Step 2,7's

NiQuitin Patches are used to help people stop smoking. They work by replacing some of the nicotine you get from cigarettes. This type of treatment is called Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). The nicotine in cigarettes makes them addictive, but other substances in cigarette smoke, such as tar, carbon dioxide and other toxins, are more harmful to your health. NRT products like NiQuitin Patches do not have the health dangers of tobacco. The nicotine from NRT reduces your cravings for cigarettes and helps you resist the urge to smoke. It also relieves some of the unpleasant symptoms (like feeling ill or irritable) that smokers have when they try to give up. The patches provide a steady amount of nicotine to your body, generally at a lower level than from cigarettes. NiQuitin Patches can be used to help you: • stop smoking straightaway (a quit attempt).• cut down on smoking, perhaps before you go on to stop completely (reducing to quit or just reducing). In addition, NiQuitin Patches may be used when you:• do not wish to smoke, for example in confined spaces (in the car, in the house), where others (such as children) could be harmed by tobacco smoke or in places where smoking is prohibited (temporary abstinence).• develop cravings once you have stopped smoking.
How to use
Adults and young people aged 12 years and over: Instructions for use of NiQuitin Patches depend on whether you are:-• stopping smoking straightaway.• cutting down on smoking before you stop.• cutting down with no immediate plans to stop.• going without cigarettes for a short time.or if you have cravings after you have stopped smoking.If you are under 18 years old and not ready to stop smoking straightaway, talk to a healthcare professional for advice.
