HABITROL

Like Nicoderm CQ, Habitrol is a patch that delivers controlled amounts of nicotine into the bloodstream through the skin. The amount of nicotine that the patch offers is less than that of a cigarette, but enough to stave off cravings.

The amount of nicotine that is delivered to your system is controlled through the patch that you wear. As you continue to take the patches, less nicotine will be delivered to your system, effectively training your body to move off of the addiction. Like Nicoderm CQ, Habitrol has one solution for heavy smokers and another for light smokers.

For Heavy Smokers (those who smoke more than 10 cigarettes per day), an 8-week program is offered. Following shows the amount of nicotine delivered to your system:

  • Weeks 1-4:  21 mg per day
  • Weeks 5-6:  14 mg per day
  • Weeks 7-8:  7mg per day

For Light Smokers (those who smoke less than 10 cigarettes per day), a slightly less 8-week program is offered. Nicotine delivery for light smokers is as follows:

  • Weeks 1-6:  14 mg per day
  • Weeks 7-8:  7 mg per day

Physical withdrawal symptoms usually reach their peak in 24 to 72 hours after quitting. After the first 1-3 days the symptoms begin to decline over the next several weeks. As this begins to happen, you are automatically moved to a patch with a lower dosing level.

We found the delivery system in the Nicoderm CQ patch to be a little more effective than Habitrol; it seems to distribute the nicotine more evenly throughout the day. However, we had no physical discomfort from either patch.

Habitrol offers a money-back refund on unopened packages of the product within 30 days of purchase.

Habitrol earns high marks for delivering a product comparable to Nicoderm CQ but at less cost. If you don't mind the subtle differences, and can live with the return policy, Habitrol is a very good choice.

ZERO NICOTINE

Zero Nicotine is a patch that eliminates the nicotine in the body, instead of replenishing nicotine levels like some patch products do.

The patch combines a variety of traditional herbal formulas that are designed to eliminate the need for nicotine. All 17 of the herbal ingredients are listed on the website and an easy to understand description is listed for each one. This is very helpful, especially since the home page is so vague.

One thing about this patch that is different from the others that we have examined, is the length of time you wear it. One box, which is a 30-day supply, contains ten patches. Each patch is to be worn for three days. The Zero Nicotine patch claims to be much more durable than some of it's competitors. It is supposed to hold up during workouts, showers, even swimming.

In practice, we didn't find the patch any more or less durable than those offered by highly-rated Nicoderm CQ. They both seemed durable enough to last for 3 days. Of course, the Nicoderm CQ patch is designed to be replaced after 24 hours, since it has by that time released all its medicine.

Zero Nicotine recommends a minimum 30 day supply (10 patches), at a price of $59.95. They also provide a money back guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied, you can return the patches with your original dated receipt within 90 days of purchase, and get a refund. It does not say full refund, although that is assumed.

Zero Nicotine is a reasonable product. If you like to approach of a patch system, and don't want to have to change the patch every day, you might give Zero Nicotine a try.

Stop Smoking

To help you find the Best Stop Smoking Products, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Habitrol and Zero Nicotine.

In recent years, there has been a boom in growth for products designed to help you stop smoking. From patches to prescriptions, nicotine delivery systems, herbal products, supplements, chewing gum, and lozenges, the options seem endless.

While the approaches differ, their goals are the same: to give you a healthier, cleaner body. Studies have shown that people who quit smoking have a much better outlook on life. They have more energy and are happier with themselves.

You can also save a lot of money by quitting smoking. A person who smokes a single pack of cigarettes a day can save over $2,500 a year in cigarettes alone - not to mention the money saved on doctor visits and other long-term medical spending.

When looking at different stop smoking programs, there are certain factors you need to consider. Some of these include:

  • Effectiveness.  The bottom line - does the product work? Does it deliver on its claims? Spending your time and money on ineffective smoking products will only lead to frustration.
  • Convenience.  How manageable is the solution? It will do no good if it sits on the shelf and goes unused.
  • Cost.  Is the cost of the product competitive with other smoking solutions?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best stop smoking products available today. We hope this information helps you to kick that smoking habit once and for all!



The Benefits of Quitting Smoking

The benefits of quitting smoking have been well documented over the years. Some of the top benefits include:

Health Benefits
Health benefits include decreasing the risk of having many types of cancer (lung, mouth, esophageal, etc.), decreasing the likelihood of infertility or impotence, and decreasing the chance of having high blood pressure, diabetes, or heart disease. If you don't have any of these health issues already, consider yourself lucky and quit while you're ahead. The surgeon general has stated that quitting has major and immediate benefits to health for women and men whether they already have smoking related health problems or not.

The problems above are health issues associated with smoking but another health issue that comes up when people talk about quitting smoking is weight gain. Many people tend to gain a little weight because they replace having a cigarette in their mouth with putting food in their mouth. For most people the weight gain is 5-10 pounds. Don't let this be a deterrent. The health benefits of quitting far outweigh the risks associated with negligible weight gain. By eating a healthy diet and keeping active you will be able to maintain your 'smokers' weight.

Elimination of Second Hand Smoke
While it is easy to list the health benefits of quitting smoking, the advantages do not end there. You'll also be helping those around you by not producing second hand smoke, setting a good example for your own or other people's children, and getting that pesky cigarette stench out of your hair, wardrobe, car and house. And NO MORE smokers breath!

Financial Benefits
Let's not forget the financial impact smoking can have. Smoking is an expensive habit; extremely expensive if you're a chain smoker. Break out your calculator and follow along here boys and girls. The average price of cigarettes is over $6.75 per pack in the US (as of summer 2012). And year after year the cost will continue to rise as states try to increase tax revenue by raising the tax on cigarettes. If you buy the average pack of cigarettes ($6.75) and smoke two packs a week, it equals more than $700.00 per year. Four packs a week is over $1400.00 per year. One pack a day is nearly $2500.00 per year. That's some serious cash. What would you be able to do with an extra $700.00? $1400.00 every year? What could you do with $2500.00 extra in your piggy bank?

Health benefits and financial benefits are the really the typically at the top of list when it comes to reasons to stop smoking. When looking for methods to help stop the addiction consider a variety of options and don't give up - it's worth the effort.
