they use nicotine because it will keep them distracted from smoking also if you are smoking it taste good so that is the answer Nicotine patches (or gum) is used to help the cravings of the nicotine coming out of the body once a person quits smoking. It's like a drug addict that takes methadone to help them get over the cravings of the drug they were on. Some say it works, others say they just get hooked on the nicotine patches.
