Nicotine Patches help to quit smoking
Using nicotine patches two weeks increases the chances of quitting smoking as the presence of nicotine from the patch makes the body not interested in the tobacco from inhaled source leading to loss of interest in smoking and the intention to quit smoking increases and the researchers have reported their finding in the Journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research. Researchers have also found no serious adverse effects occurring due to use of nicotine patches.
