Nicotine patch may help prevent smoking relapses
Nicotine patches may help smokers recover from any initial setbacks in their attempt to kick the habit, a new U.S. study suggests.
"The clear implication is that you shouldn't give up, you should stay on the treatment with patch," said Saul Shiffman, one of the study's authors from the University of Pittsburgh.
People who "lapse," or give in to nicotine cravings when trying to quit, are at high risk of giving up and returning to smoking.
But contrary to common perception, they haven't failed at quitting and may get over initial lapses by continuing to use the patch, Shiffman said.
