Is this safe/effective? Also: I'm scared about what's going to happen when I go to work. I have never had a job where I didn't take smoke breaks. Any tips on what to do during 5-minute breaks? (I need them because I stare at a computer screen all day at work and if I don't take little breaks I kinda start to lose it). Any other positive words or advice are totally welcome! Quitters, how did you do it?? Answered by Reginia Vorwald 4 months ago.
I also did Nicoderm after 5 years of smoking and I've been 6 years sober now. It really all depends on how much you smoke a day. I was smoking a little over a pack and a half and the starter dosage was good for me. If you aren't smoking that much, I would step down to the next dose. I really don't THINK that cutting the patch would be bad. You may want to call the company and ask them though. It worked extremely well for me. I tried to smoke 2 times while on the patch and I got really sick, so I don't suggest it. I carred toothpicks with me, got fake cigarettes, chewed lots of gum, anything to keep your hands busy. I have smoked 2 cigarettes since I quit and i threw up. Smoke disgusts me now. It's weird. Anyway, just stick to the patch and don't take your break where you used to. Go to a different area and call someone or play with rubber bands and chew on toothpicks. just keep your hands busy. good luck! Answered by Tamatha Rapkowicz 4 months ago.
I am on the patchnow. I went to a smokers group and they said it is not good to cut the patches. There are differant miligrams of nicotine. it sounds liek you need to take the next step down. Some people can't handle the patch either so if the lower dosage makes you feel sick too try the gum. I read a book at my desk. I don't even go outside because I know I will smoke. good luck!

Does anyone know FOR SURE which is correct? I've heard if you do smoke it increases your chances of quitting. And, some other questions. Has anyone used it and it actually worked? How long have you not been smoking? What are some good things to replace your cigerettes with? If anyone has an answer... PLEASE HELP I desperatly want to quit smoking. I work with children and I kinda' have to too. Thanks a bunch! Answered by Sharon Turnquist 4 months ago.
Nicoderm CQ contains nicotine so it has to help. Overlap the patches a few hours for a week, then separate them farther and farther apart. you have to be careful not to get addicted to the patches. Start your experiment when you go on an ocean cruise and it will all be easier. The distractions are so numerous it helps. Answered by Al Zeisler 4 months ago.
I was on another brand of the patch once (which was supposed to have *cleared* the nicotine out of my system instead of supplementing it). It recommended that you smoke while using the patch for the first few days (i.e. no more than the first 5 days). I found no change during that period, but after being just on the patch itself, I had a bit of success. But just 2 weeks after I had finished using the patch, I went back to smoking again. It may take time... There are several different ways to keep yourself occupied. Chew a lot of gum, or use something to keep your mouth occupied (i.e. a straw). The cravings may come every now and then, but as long as you're keeping yourself occupied in some way, they will go away quickly. Hope you have much better success than I had. Good luck!

so i tried to stop smoking on monday and OMG it is hard. i looked up nicoderm cq on the internet. it is really expensive. does anyone know where the cheapest place to buy it is.
Asked by Wilson Hayakawa 4 months ago.
It is extremely difficult to quit smoking. All nicotine replacements are only effective in the short term, Try just stopping, hide yourself away somewhere and give yourself a reward (like candy or something you really like) for every day that you haven't smoked. Relapse is possible but keep trying. Good Luck. Answered by Marcene Matarese 4 months ago.
The last 3 places I have worked has a "smoking Cessation " program to help their employees, stop smoking. There are hotline that you can call too that give out patches, but you have to go through phone counseling 1x a wk. you go girl I need to quit too. Answered by Maryrose Bonjorno 4 months ago.
It is expensive everywhere. I quit in aug on my own and have not smoked since. Drink lots of water. And buy lollipops every time you want a ciggerete grab a lollipop. Hope this helps. Answered by Sheilah Liano 4 months ago.

Does NicoDerm CQ really work?
what are the side effects, I've herd that people get really bad nightmares if they forget to take the patch off. Also, what about Hypno - how much does it cost and how many times do ya need to go under to be cured of cravings?
Asked by Jennine Withington 4 months ago.
Hypno will only work if you believe in it. I do not so it failed for me. The Nicoderm patches absolutly work! I was a 1 pack + / day smoker when I started them and I haven't had a single puff since (Over four years now). It is also true that if you don't take it off about 1 hour before bed, you will have some crazy dreams/nightmares. DO NOT smoke while you are using them either!! Good Luck!!!

How long are Nicoderm CQ Patches good past their expiration date?
Please answer the question. I am not trying to quit smoking, I do not currently smoke. However, I do need to know if the Nicoderm CQ patches are any good after they expire.
Asked by Eric Kolm 4 months ago.
Nicoderm and all that other stuff is only good for the one who sells it! Try to make up your mind and have a strong will and you can stop without making somebody else rich! Those things are more expensive than cigarettes and not healthy either.Just believe in yourself ! Faith can move mountains ! Good luck Answered by Ayako Rivenburg 4 months ago.

it truly is vitally puzzling to provide up smoking. All nicotine replacements are in effortless words effective interior the couple of minutes period, try in simple terms preventing, cover your self away someplace and provides your self a advantages (like sweet or something you truly like) for each day that you've not smoked. Relapse is feasible yet save attempting. good success. Answered by Whitney Moayyad 4 months ago.
