    Just a warning to anyone trying ‘nicotine patches’. .... my mate was doing well with them but then decided to have a couple of cigs as well !!

    He ended up being rushed into hospital... the symptoms were similar to a heart attack!

    Sounds like nicotine OD. I don't smoke but have worked as a medic on an ambulance for over 20 yrs. and have seen this type of emergency in the field.

    Most people don’t even bother reading the small ( sometimes microscopic) print on the side though

    I did that when I was a teenager, didn't have to go to the hospital, but I vomited pretty violently. Definitely not a good idea to mix.
