A New Nicotine Patch
Nicoderm CQ ThinFlex is a full 25% more flexible than the original NicoDerm CQ patch, first marketed in 1992. It is the most flexible and thinnest clear patch available to consumers today.
When I opened the package to take a look at this new nicotine patch, I was impressed. The little clear square looked more like a small strip of tape than it did a nicotine patch. While I didnt try it on, I could easily see how comfortable and light it would be to wear. The improvements are bound to make a more enjoyable user experience overall.
People at our smoking cessation support forum often comment about not wanting to pay for nicotine patches. Its a common theme in fact, and understandable. When folks finally make the decision to quit smoking, many resent having to spend any more of their money on nicotine. They want to be done with this addiction, once and for all.
While I understand the sentiment, I always advise people to relax and use NRT's(nicotine replacement therapies) to their personal advantage. The cost of the nicotine patch program is a small price to pay if it helps a person quit smoking forever. The alternative to using a quit aid for some people could mean a return to full-time smoking, which would obviously cost a lot more in both cash and quality of life than the patch program by far. Its money well spent as far as Im concerned.

About NRT's as Quit Smoking AidsWe are fortunate to live in a time when many options to help us quit smoking are available to us.
Some people prefer to quit smoking cold turkey, that is, without a NRT (nicotine replacement therapy). While this works well for some, not everyone is cut out for this abrupt method of smoking cessation.
NRTs allow people to gradually wean off of nicotine in a controlled manner. This eases physical symptoms of nicotine withdrawal and allows the quitter to focus more fully on breaking down the psychological part of their smoking habit.
Resolve to put the work in to free yourself from this addiction, and be patient. Even after youve finished the patch program, youll have times, especially during your first smoke free year, when thoughts of smoking will surface. We spent years building associations between smoking and the activities in our lives. It takes time to create new connections that dont include smoking. Patience!

Remember, recovery from nicotine addiction is a process of gradual release over time. Be patient with yourself. Youll never regret quitting, and the freedom youll gain once you've kicked the habit is nothing short of outstanding!
