Nicotine patch

Posted

Hey everyone. A year and two months into TPAPN and I have decided it's time to quit smoking. I put a patch on tonight. Then, in after thought, looked up the patches chemical consistency and found it contains ethanol polymers. Anyone out there use the patch through testing. Very difficult to find information as to whether this would cause a false positives on alcohol testing.
