Nicotine patches contain nicotine and are a form of nicotine replacement therapy to help you quit smoking. Nicotine is the habit-forming drug in tobacco, and is a stimulant and mood lifter. When you give up smoking, you give up nicotine. During nicotine withdrawal, you may experience feelings such as being worried, angry, irritated, frustrated, restless or have concentration problems.
Using medications and a Quit Coach together can greatly enhance your chances of quitting, more than just using medication alone.
