Nicotine patches have not helped me quit smoking, but they have helped me lucid dream. Not only are my dreams far more vivid and complex, but I find myself becoming conscious in them far more often. I now do this weekly, as opposed to monthly. Not only am I aware of my amazing dream imagery, I have no social rules, laws, expectations to limit my choices within the dreamscape, however often all I end up doing is flying around, sometimes running out of visual input, and flying directly into this glowing matrix structure.
I don't know if the increasing complexity of my dreams on this substance is helping me notice I'm no longer partaking in consensus reality, and therefore dreaming, or if I'm just more aware, due to the nootropic benefit of nicotine, but these patches have certainly increased the frequency of my dream control. They have also improved my dream recall, so it's possible that I simply more frequently remember my lucid dreams. It should be noted that I really don't care why, only THAT I'm controlling my dreams more regularly; I find the next several days following dream control filled with excitement and euphoria, and happiness is a health benefit. Thank one's personal deity for nicotine addiction.
