It's no myth, Clinton. I've never tried them, and I never will. They are too expensive, and much too risky. (Hence the BIG warnings on every package).   

Haven't got time to find the clickies for you right now, but a couple minutes of exploring medical/ scientific articles online shows that nicotine substitutes can and do cause angina, heart attacks, and death - especially in light smokers like myself (less than half a pack a day), or if a quitter lights up while wearing one.

On a similar note - have you ever pondered what will happen to all those trendy health-food-pristine-lifestyle-exercise-fanatics in about 40 years? There they'll be, laid out in hospital beds or nursing homes with all of us lesser mortals, dying of .... of .... well, of ....
