QuitX patches are part of a carefully structured QuitX support program including materials designed to provide you with information to help you stop smoking (see leaflet inside carton). - QuitX patches, being a STEP down approach will reduce your nicotine dose gradually, rather than stopping suddenly. - The program consists of 3 STEPS which you will need to follow. Each STEP has a specifically designed QuitX patch that supplies your body with a controlled amount of nicotine over a 24 hour period. The dose of nicotine delivered through the patch decreases as you go from STEP 1 through to STEP 3. Completing the entire program will increase your chance of quitting successfully. The STEP at which you start the program will depend on how many cigarettes you smoke each day. - Each QuitX patch can be worn for 24 hours so it works night and day.
