* On Selected Niquitin
We know how daunting quitting smoking can be, but quitting doesn't have to be all or nothing. Breaking it down into manageable steps can be a lot less scary. You might choose to quit one day at a time, or even cut down one cigarette at a time. Whichever is right for you NiQuitin believes that each positive step you take towards reaching your quitting goal should be celebrated as a win!
NIQUITIN PRE-QUIT Patch
- Eases you into your quit as it allows you to smoke as needed for 2-4 weeks until quit day
- May help make quitting easier by making smoking less rewarding
- PRE-QUIT followed by the step down patch programme is the most effective approach to quit using patches*
*Smoke as needed while wearing a patch 2-4 weeks before quit day
If you smoke 10 or more cigarettes a day and you've struggled to leave cigarettes behind in the past, there's a good reason to feel confident this time because NIQUITIN PRE-QUIT presents a different approach. NIQUITIN PRE-QUIT Clear 21mg Patch lets you ease into quitting by allowing you to smoke as needed the first 2 – 4 weeks while wearing a patch before you give up all your cigarettes on quit day. By setting a quit date it allows you to prepare mentally whilst wearing a patch and continuing to smoke as needed, giving you a better chance of success compared to using a patch from quit day.
After the 2 - 4 weeks PRE-QUIT period you stop smoking completely and begin the NIQUITIN step down patch programme.
Quitting smoking can be one of the hardest things you'll ever do. Rather than adopting an all or nothing approach, focus on taking it one day at a time. If you see your journey as a series of short-term goals instead of a long term goal, you may be giving yourself a more realistic chance of beating cigarettes. It's a great feeling when you have managed to go through a day without smoking!
NiQuitin Clear Patch can help you get through each day and quit
NiQuitin Clear Patch, with unique Smart Control™ technology, provides a rapid release of nicotine on application followed by a continuous delivery for 24 hour craving control. No other patch is more effective than NiQuitin Clear 21mg patch.
NiQuitin patches can be used as part of a 10 week step down programme to quit. They come in three different strengths (or steps), which means they deliver different levels of therapeutic nicotine to your body depending on your needs.
- If you smoke 10 cigarettes or more a day, start with Step 1 and gradually move to step 2 and 3 as directed on the pack over 10 weeks.
- If you smoke less than 10 cigarettes a day, start at Step 2 and follow the 8 week programme described on the pack.
Every day you manage to resist smoking, celebrate a win!
If you're not ready to stop smoking completely just yet, cutting down can be a really worthwhile way of doing something positive about your smoking. It's a great feeling when you've passed on those cigarettes you choose not to smoke. These are small but significant steps towards dramatically changing your smoking habits.

Nicotine replacement therapies can help with the physical addiction, but having tricks up your sleeve to distract you from the psychological habit can be just as important.
If you miss the feel of a cigarette in your mouth, holding something in your hands, or just the act of socialising with other smokers, it's useful to have some distractions that focus your attention on something else for around 15 minutes to help keep you from giving in. Here are just a few ideas.
If you usually go outside for a cigarette break, walk around the block for a few minutes instead. It's amazing what you can find when you explore. Get in touch
with your friends or workmates. It might sound simple but taking the time to have a chat helps to break up your day and keeps you away from cigarettes. You could do it online by updating your Facebook page or twitter account. Your friends will always be happy to hear from you.
