The Patch

Have you ever tried breaking up this way?

Did it work?

What it is:

The Patch is a form of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) where nicotine is delivered through a small patch on your skin.

How it works:

The patch is available in different strengths. The nicotine is absorbed into your body slowly through your skin, helping you control withdrawal symptoms and cravings by gradually reducing your body’s dependence on nicotine.

Getting Started:

You can buy the patch at your local pharmacy. You don’t need a prescription to use it, but be sure to read the instructions on the package before buying it. If you have any of the listed medical conditions or are unsure if the patch is right for you, talk with a Health Care Professional.
