Habitrol Patches are a very popular and effective form of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). Each Habitrol patch lasts 24 hours. Habitrol patches aid the user in the fight against nicotine withdrawal symptoms by releasing a small, controlled amount of nicotine into the system. Anyone who has attempted to give up smoking before will probably have experienced the effects of nicotine dependence - craving for tobacco and the desire to smoke, irritability, moodiness, restlessness, tenseness, anxiety, feeling of hunger, weight gain, difficulty concentrating and sleep disturbances. Habitrol patches largely prevent these cravings, weight gain and other withdrawal symptoms. This makes them a great help to the smoker who wishes to give up.
When you apply a Habitrol patch to your skin, the nicotine passes through your skin and into your body, replacing the nicotine you would have got from smoking. As your body adjusts to the treatment, your dosage of nicotine is gradually reduced and finally stopped all together.
After wearing a Habitrol patch for 24 hours you simply remove the patch and replace it with a new one. Because you are always wearing a patch, it helps people who may have found it too difficult to deal with the severe nicotine cravings experienced when they woke up in the morning when they were using a 16-hour patch. Habitrol patches are very easy to use. You do not have to worry about receiving the correct dosage.
There are three strengths of 24-hour patches available as part of the Habitrol patch system. The strongest is the 21 milligram (mg) patch which releases 21mg of nicotine over 24 hours. The middle patch is 14mg and the smallest is the 7mg patch. Each box contains seven patches, a week's worth of treatment per box. Habitrol offers a step-by-step programme that takes the edge off your nicotine cravings and allows you to focus on making the necessary behavioural changes to quit smoking.
