Yes: If you are motivated, and truly hooked on nicotine, then nicotine patches can help a lot with the cravings. If you are not motivated, it won't help much.

Probably: Those with allergy to nicotine , unstable heart conditions, and periperal arterial conditions including rayneuds. Of course, they shouldn't be smoking either.
