How soon after removing the patch can I start smoking (if I should decide to give up) and how long after my last cigarette before I can begin using NicoDerm CQ®?

Following removal of the patch, nicotine levels decline slowly over a period of about 3 to 4 hours. In order to minimize your total nicotine intake if you decide to start smoking again, you should wait about 4 hours after removing the patch before it is safe to smoke. Wait 1/2 hour after your last cigarette before applying the patch.
