Equate Nicotine Transdermal System Step 1 Patches are the first step in our three-step system to help you quit smoking. Our patches are part of a 10-week quitting program that’s designed to help you successfully quit smoking. The active ingredient in each Step 1 patch is 21 milligrams of nicotine that, when used properly, can reduce withdrawal symptoms, including nicotine craving associated with quitting smoking. Begin using the patch on your quit day by applying one new patch on skin that is dry, clean, and hairless. Wear your patch for 16 to 24 hours and then reapply every 24 hours. Be sure to follow these instructions as they are listed in the support program packet that’s included in the enclosed user’s guide. These Step 1 stop smoking aids are recommended for individuals who smoke more than 10 cigarettes per day. If you smoke 10 or less cigarettes per day, start with Step 2. Completing the full program will increase your chances of quitting successfully. All you need to do is take the first step with Equate Nicotine Transdermal System Step 1 Patches.

What is the nicotine patch and how is it used?
The nicotine patch is a small, nicotine-containing patch. When you put on a nicotine patch, nicotine passes through the skin and into your body. The nicotine patch is very thin and uses special material to control how fast nicotine passes through the skin. Unlike the sudden jolts of nicotine delivered by cigarettes, the amount of nicotine you receive remains relatively smooth throughout the 16 or 24 hour period you wear the nicotine patch. This helps to reduce cravings you may have for nicotine.
