Is the nicotrol (nicotine patch) inhaler effective to quit smoking?

Cessation is great: Nicotrol (nicotine patch) can be effective in smoking cessation as will the gum, patches, etc.You must want to quit as well. Don't think the nicotine substitute (any form) will do it all. You must meet half way. Go on line for all the smoking cessation sites. I'm sure one will be helpful.
