ONCE YOU DECIDE TO QUIT WHICH IS THE KEY “YOU HAVE TO WANT TO QUIT” THEN DON’T HESITATE TO PUT ON A PATCH. I SMOKED FOR OVER 20 YEARS AND TRIED UNSUCCESFULLY ON MANY OCCASIONS TO QUIT WITH NO SUCCESS. I REALLY WASN’T READY TO QUIT WHICH IS WHY I FAILED. THIS TIME I MENTALLY PREPARED FOR WEEKS AND CUT DOWN MY DAILY SMOKES UNTIL I KNEW I WAS READY. I WAS DOWN TO MAYBE HALF A PACK WHEN I STARTED WITH THE #2 AND I CAN TELL YOU THAT THE PATCH TOOK AWAY ANY DESIRE TO SMOKE. GRANTED THERE ARE TIMES THAT I GET THE MENTAL URGE TO SMOKE EVEN NOW BUT I LEARNED THAT IF YOU IGNORE IT WITHIN 5 MINUTES IT’S GONE. I AM JUST SO HAPPY TO HAVE FINALLY GIVEN UP THIS TERRIBLE HABIT. BEST OF LUCK
The patch helped my nicotine cravings. The first few days were the most challenging, as all my habits and smoking places had to be avoided. But the physical nicotine craving was taken care of by the patch. The patch helped minimize my intense cravings for nicotine. I would never have been able to quit smoking without this patch. It’s been four weeks now and I’m still not smoking–and I’m still wearing the patch, but wearing the Step 3 with less nicotine. What has changed is that some days I forget to put on the patch until after lunch or later…my early morning nicotine cravings have sort of dwindled away. I won’t lie to you–I still have moments of heavy cravings, but they’re temporary and have been fairly easy to overcome. And they are getting less frequent. If you want to quit smoking, try the patch.
Update as of August 27, 2008: Still not smoking. I highly recommend the patch.
I have been smoke free since January 2005 with thanks to these patches. I have unsuccessfully tried other methods in the past and am so grateful for these patches. If you decide you wish to quit smoking these could be the help you need to get over the physical cravings, just like they did for me. They seem to induce colorful epic dreams too!
I like most others have tried repeatedly to quit smoking. I have failed many, many, many times. I will not say that Nicroderm CQ is what made me stop because that is NOT true. I failed many, many, many times even with the use of Nicroderm CQ. What I will say about Nicroderm CQ is that I truly believe that it gave me the help that I needed to stop smoking when I WAS READY!
Nicroderm CQ does not take away ALL of your cravings but it really does make a lot of them managable. I do not think that I could have done it with out the help of a nicotine patch.
I have also tried other “cheaper” patches and I found that Nicroderm CQ was worth the extra few dollars for a lot of different reasons. The most important reasons are that they stick better. You would think that is not a huge deal but let me tell you when your patch is always falling off then you are not getting the “help” or nicotine from the patch that need. Nicroderm CQ sticks really good. Another reason I would choose Nicroderm CQ is that there is a great support program that comes with the patches. I believe that you really can not quit smoking alone (it would be difficult) and with these patches you don’t have to. There is a pamphlet inside the box with phone numbers and a`website. You answer some questions and they do the rest. There is a lot of information, you can call 24 hours a day to talk to someone, and the website is very informational. Support is not only there for you when you are suceeding but support is also there for you if you slip up or even if you fail completely. They do not judge you, instead they provide resources and information about trying again when YOU are ready.
If you are reading my review then I am assuming that either you or someone you know is looking to quit smoking…and no matter what route you or the person who is quitting takes I wish you (or them) the best of luck!
I smoked, 14 years, about a pack every two days, sometimes more, and I started with this, the lower-dose program. It really helps. Using the patch separates two aspects of quitting, the physical addiction, and the habit/lifestyle of smoking. I highly recommend this route–by the time you step down the nicotine level, you’re completely used to not smoking–not going out for smokes at work, after meals, at bars….
I had very close support (supervision) which was also really helpful. Had I been alone, especially at the crucial points–day one, two and three, and all the step-downs in dose–I would have smoked.
I did smoke once at about week seven, total waste, increased my cravings for a few days. Other than that, I’ve been smoke free for 12 weeks. Feel great, can taste and smell, get a ton of work done….I still miss it, still think about smoking, wish I could smoke one or two when out, maybe in a few years….
I did not keep the patch on overnight, did once by mistake, caused nicotine OD, felt horrible for a day.
Based on some info from friends, you have to buy the name brand here, not the generic. The important part of the patch is the delivery system and adhesive, and the generics don’t measure up (I use all generics unless there’s a good reason not to).
Find good reasons to quit (health, social limitations, long flights, expense) and use the patch to supplement your own will power. Got to quit sooner or later, might as well spend the dollars and do the patch and quit now, before it’s (seriously) too late.
P.S. The patch can cause a bruise, like a vaccination, try different areas til you find one that doesn’t get irritated.
If you’ve come this far, you are at least entertaining thoughts about quitting. That’s important.
Simply put, the patch worked. I had smoked 1 1/2 packs a day for 29 years, and had attempted to quit cold turkey on numerous occasions. Nothing helped me. I became almost psychotic, and always returned to my cigarettes after a few days.
You must feel like quitting for the patch to work. It’s not a silver bullet that takes away all desire for tobacco. It simply takes the big edge off your nicotine withdrawal symptoms, which is a huge boost. You then take care of the motivational “triggers” yourself — and believe me, it’s far easier than you think, once the nicotine cravings are gone. If I can do it, you certainly can, too.
I did not suffer any kind of rash, and the only side effects I had were vivid dreams (nice) and a sort of occasional, pleasant drowsiness.
Within six days of dropping the habit and using the patch, my blood pressure dropped to normal. I had more patience. I breathed deeply and without coughing. My sense of taste and smell improved. My circulation was better (no more cold feet or hands on a chilly night), and I had noticeably more energy. Even my skin improved. And my sex life certainly did, also. There were other, less obvious differences, but ones which I definitely felt. These were evidence of a body beginning to heal itself after 29 years of poisoning.
After two weeks my urges were barely noticeable. After four weeks, I didn’t think about cigarettes anymore, and couldn’t stand smelling one burning from across the street.
And I gave myself back about 21 hours a week that I would have wasted smoking.
Please, if you have had trouble quitting before, get the patch and follow the schedule. Make the commitment. It’s not scary, nor is it torture to say goodbye to those coffin nails. It’s an adventure. Within just a few weeks, you’ll be looking at smokers with pity (and feeling great while you do). I came through it, and you can too.
I have tried everything and this is the only thing that worked for me. I have just finished the Nicoderm 3 step program and have not had a cigarette in 2 1/2 months! You can do it too and the patch will make it possible. There are a few tricks:
1) Do not even bother unless you really want to quit–you must have a purpose.2) The night before you want to start, make sure that you smoke ALL of your cigarettes, every last one (or flush them down the toilet to get them out of sight and mind). When you are ready to go to sleep, put on the patch.3) When you wake up, the patch is working, its up to you at that point.
Good luck! Anyone can get rid of their addiction if they really want to with the patch.
PS: I also had really wonderful and vivid dreams.
I am pleased with the Nicoderm product. The product worked really well. It took my cravings away so I can concentrate in modifying my habits. Specially when drinking a beer. I completed the program without a fall back. This is the first time I can feel free of the habit. I miss the social aspect of smoking but I feel so healthy and in control and that’s a great feeling. I felt some anxiety when I went from Step 2 to 3 but it was a couple days only. You hardly feel the patch although I found it can get detached if you sweet a lot. Once I was done with the program the first weekend felt like a child loosing their security blanket. After the first couple of days my confident went up and I am still smoking free. IS AWESOME! Another thing, the product said you might get live dreams if you wear while sleeping. I got those dreams. It was sort of cool dreams. Like me, if you get cravings when you wake up or before going to bed the patch can protect you 24 hrs. It worked for me.
Works great if you have the will power to stop. These are not magic patches where you never get a craving to smoke again for the rest of your life. But they do work very well as they help stop the cravings. You will still get cravings every once in a while, so you have to have the will to really quit. If you don’t REALLY want to quit, no product is going to help you, so don’t waste your money until you’re 100% ready to stop smoking!
Simply put…the patch works if you are really ready to give up the cigarettes. I’ve been a smoker for 30+ years and it’s now been three months since I’ve I had one and about a month since I have been off the patch. (I started with stage 2)I did have a bit of a rash now and then at the patch site but it was a small price to pay for the results. I’m now trying to convince my husband to give it a try…he still smokes but is finally coming around to the realization that he needs to quit. (His brother died last year from lung cancer at age 48)Let’s face it…it’s a stupid and nasty habit that we all need to break if we want to live! Give it a try for your self and for the ones that would like to have you around for awhile.
I just recently started on the patch sunday, I have had a few slips 4 to be exact but I find that it is getting much better. The cravings are the worst part but the patch is a life saver. It is very important that you keep it on all day. I found out the hard way, mine slipped off yesterday and so did I. I smoked two and I felt so ashamed. My patch fell on the floor and got stuck there, that was around 3 pm I was smoking at 4. So keep it on by any means. Thanks Nicoderm for a great product I would rather spend a little cash with you guys now than have a pretty funeral sooner.
