    They're much safer for your lungs.

    Nicotine patches are used for smoking cessation. Nicotine is released from the patches and absorbed through the skin.

    Neither is good, but patches are safer (for adult-sized people) As you know, they help some people quit smoking. I used nicotine gum.

    Hey there,

    in a practical aspect ,cigarettes have >100 harmful substances so yes nicotine patch as compared can be considered better.

    but since nicotine itself is harmful for your body, It is only used as a support till you get off from smoking addiction.

    So neither smoking nor nicotine patch are good to continue with.

    Hope this helps

    If you hold a one to your penis, it won’t burn like a lot cigarette would, so I would assume yes.

    Well - you aren't inhaling smoke, tar, and chemicals directly into your lungs - that has to be a plus.
