The patch, and other NRT's (Nicotine Replacement Therapies) like the gum, lozenge, inhaler and nasal spray, were created specifically to make withdrawal easier. They do so by providing small, measured doses of nicotine, which are absorbed through the skin and/or membranes of the mouth, throat and/or nasal passages. The body then detoxes at a slower rate, so the urges to smoke are diminished and uncomfortable symptoms are lessened.
