Am I eligible?

You can come into the trial if you meet the criteria below:

  • You smoke tobacco cigarettes (non-daily smokers are also eligible)
  • You live in New Zealand
  • You are keen to quit smoking in the next two weeks
  • You are at least 18 years of age
  • You have access to telephone (mobile and/or landline)
  • Most importantly - You are prepared to use a nicotine patch alone OR a nicotine patch and e-cigarette together. You can’t choose which product you get – a computer will randomly choose (like the toss of a coin) the product for you - so if you only want the patch or the e-cigarette then this trial may not be for you.
