Patient misperceptions of NRT safety are common

Patient education can help overcome concerns and increase interest in using NRT. In a study of smokers published in  Addictive Behaviors, July 20111

93%

did not know

that smoking while wearing a nicotine patch does not cause heart attacks

76%

did not know

that nicotine gum or lozenges are not as addictive as cigarettes

68%

did not know

that NRT products are not as dangerous as cigarettes

50%

would be more likely

to use NRT if they were exposed to information that corrected their concerns1
