Congratulations on 10 days, that's great. Is there a particular reason why you won't put a patch on the same place twice? I know you are supposed to alternate, but I think in the instructions it says after a week, or a few days, you can use the same spot.

LOL I hope so! Although I would assume the nicotine from the previous patch would have been used up and there wouldn't be an accumulation :lol:

Sorry but I've having a giggle. You can put it on the same spot just leave a day in between. Oh and I wouldn't put it on any areas that are a little sensitive. :wink:

iv e read the directions and they dont say A thing about removing a patch . just apply a new one every 24 hours for six weeks
And there was A lady on here the other day posting and she said her Doctor told her she could keep wearing the patches as long as she liked
But Ill tell ya some days I feel high as a kite, No wonder its so easy to quit smoking with these bad boys

I've got tears in my eyes laughing over this. I hope it's not serious because this person could end up in hospital with 10 patches on. :shock: In fact maybe they should go there and tell them what they've done and get everything (and I mean everything) checked up.

If it is serious please take all your patches off and just put one new one on every day....but make sure you always take the old one off and don't put the patch near your eyes, ears, mouth, nose or genitals.

Well considering in the last week we've had someone come on the board and say they started smoking to stop someone else smoking and someone else said they were going to start smoking so they could stop drinking, I would believe that people would do almost anything and think it normal.

Thank you for this it was so funny. Glad you're not so stupid, my faith in human nature is restored knowing it's a joke.

hey Dancer
I was having fun and ready to say I looked like a kid who just found a pack of bandades and then how these would be so good to sell to kids . But then you went and started talking about this guy needs to go to the hosp. And I just couldn't keep going
oh to funny thanks all
