  • You didn't say what the symptoms you are experiencing are and have you tried to go without the patches already?

    Some people here tried cutting the patches, within this thread there's a post by BibleBlack which has lots of info on how it was done,

    Best wishes.


  • Are you saying you have been on 25mg patches for over three months??! I thought they were just for the first week as that is a very stroang dosage and more likely; more than most smokers take in a daily basis.

    I thought the way to use them over the 3 month period was the 25mg patches are used for the first week if needed i.e. for heavey smokers, then its the 15mg patches for 8 weeks, then 10mg for 2 weeks then finally 5mg patches for 2 weeks, then stop nicotine. After being on a strong dose for so long you should defo cut down gradually using this method.
