What is the NicoDerm® CQ® Patch and How is it Used?
NicoDerm® CQ® is a small, nicotine-containing patch.  When you put on a NicoDerm® CQ® patch, nicotine passes through the skin and into your body.  NicoDerm® CQ® is very thin and uses special material to control how fast nicotine passes through the skin.  Unlike the sudden jolts of nicotine delivered by cigarettes, the amount of nicotine you receive remains relatively smooth throughout the 24 or 16 hours period you wear the NicoDerm® CQ® patch.  This helps to reduce the cravings you may have for nicotine.

2 Week Kit:  Free Personalized Stop Smoking Plan.  Committed Quitters® Program enrollment form, user's guide, audio tape and child resistant disposal try.
