Many people around the world who smoke have now realized the error of their ways and consequently they are now looking for a way to quit smoking. A lot has been made out of quit smoking patches too. Some have managed to quit smoking using these patches while others have had no luck. What makes the difference? Also what are the plus points of quit smoking patches and what are the negative points of quit smoking patches? We will be answering all of these questions in this article.

First of all quit smoking patches are a part of a quit smoking solution called NRT. NRT basically stands for nicotine replacement therapy. These products aim to replace the nicotine you get from smoking with the nicotine from the patch itself, thus there is no need to smoke. According to many people who have used the product it virtually eliminates all of the urges to smoke. A great number of people have managed to quit smoking using the nicotine patch which is sometimes also referred to as nicoderm. NRT not only involves the use of quit smoking patches but it also involves the use of quit smoking gum and various other products. The overwhelming majority of people who have quit smoking using the patches have found the patches to be the most effective.

The advantages of using NRT are that you at least stop taking in other toxic substances associated with smoking cigarettes. These toxic substances include tar which is one of the substances that blackens the lungs and reduces the lung capacity by filling it up. Another advantage of using quit smoking patches is that it virtually eliminates all of the physical urges you may experience when trying to quit smoking. This makes the process much easier and reduces the relapse rate.

Some of the disadvantages of using NRT include the fact that it is expensive to continue buying the quit smoking patches for a long time. Also there are some adverse side-effects associated with using quit smoking patches. These include vivid nightmares, sleepwalking, burning rashes and irritating skin. Some people also complain that the quit smoking patches did not help them to quit smoking because they relapsed soon after. You also should not smoke when on the patch because it could lead to a nicotine overdose which can lead to death. Also it is not advisable to drink when on the quit smoking patch. It can lead to some nasty complications.

There are a lot more options you should consider when you want to quit smoking. There are many independent reviews that you can read online should you wish to do more research before purchasing a product.
