These NiQuitin stop smoking patches are specially designed for those currently participating in the NiQuitin Clear programme designed to support your wish to stop smoking. The programme consists of the three steps which you need to follow in the order of step 1-3 to successfully complete the programme.
How does it work?
The programme works by each step having it's own strength of NiQuitin Clear pathches, the patches are designed to supply your body with the correct amount of nicotine required depending on what step of the quitting you are at. As you move from step to step the amount of nicotine released from the patches decreases meaning your bodies' reliance to nicotine also decreases in turn allowing you to effectively quit smoking.
