If you have an addiction to nicotine, you can go to a physician
for a transdermal patch
your desire to smoke (nicotine).
If you have an addiction to a piece of code (computer game or program), you can go to a website or a business and get a patch to increase your addiction.
If you have a relationship problem, go see a professional counselor and patch things up.
Guess which one of these three has any lasting success?
