Habitrol is useful to help stop smoking.
Habitrol patches, being a step- down approach will reduce your nicotine dose gradually, rather than stopping suddenly.
The program is in 3 steps.
Step 1: is the starting point for people who smoke 20 or more cigarettes per day...You should remain on step 1 for 4 weeks then progress to step 2 for 4 weeks then to step 3.
For smokers who are smoking less than 20 cigarettes per day you would start on step 2 and continue for 4 weeks then progress to step 3.
