Best Answer

Quitting smoking can be hard because of the intense cravings your body has for nicotine. Nicotine patches can help you quit permanently by providing your body with nicotine from a source other than cigarettes. Nicotine patches are applied to the skin like a band-aid. The inside of the patch contains nicotine that will pass into your body and reduce your cravings.

Nicotine patches are available over the counter at most drug stores. They are usually applied once a day and use a time release method to dispense the nicotine into your body continuously.
