Any dose of nicotine is wrong

Nicotine patches and gum are one of the most popular methods to quit smoking but the success rate was very poor, with only about 10 per cent actually giving up. This is because people are always using patches that were either too strong - giving them bad side effects like nausea, insomnia and vomiting - or too weak, leaving them with withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Moreover, either way if you get the wrong dose of nicotine for your habit you are very likely to go back to smoking. In the same time, some manufacturers of nicotine replacement products promote their products as effective tools to help people manage cravings in areas where they cannot smoke, such as airplanes and restaurants. This would end up in people getting addicted to nicotine replacement products in addition to continuing their smoking habits.
