How does a nicotine patch work?

Timed release

Nicotine_patch
Putting the patch on your skin will release the medicine into your skin and then the rest of the body over time. It is not meant to be as immediate or potent as a cigarette, but to provide steady and lower doses of the drug until you wean off of nicotine.

Nicotine

This combination should be fine. Good for you...quit smoking, this is a huge step forward. After quitting smoking, get to the bottom of your pain condition and try to get off narcotic medications too.

What causes nicotine addiction?

RECEPTOR ATTACHMENT

The drugs that can lead to addiction and abuse are the ones that have a very immediate effect on how you feel. SO there is a link between the drug and euphoria or sedation or relaxation etc. The quicker this happens the more potential for addiction like smoking is very rapid absorption into the bloodstream through the lungs. The effects are short lasting however and so you have to smoke again.

How do nicotine addictions work?

Habits are habits

Brain
Addictive behavior has common underpinnings despite the various chemicals, physical or mechanical, or ritualistic, behaviors may initiate them. Areas of the brain are involved similarly regardless of the addicting substance. Dopamine is a prime mediator of addiction.

Dr. Andrew Turrisi answered:

Is nicotine gum still cancerous?

Actually there

Nicotine
are numerous carcinogens in tobacco, but nicotine is *not* carcinogenic, it is just HIGHLY addictive. The idea of patches is that they taper the dose of nicotine to aid your dependence on it, until you stop...the craving is less. So, the nicorette/derm is safe, a bridge to lower your 'required' dose, and help you ditch the product.
