In brief: Not clear
The long term effects of nrt are not clear, however, dependence upon the replacement is possible.
Yet, compared to smoking itself, i suspect the long term effects of nrt pale in comparison. There have been no links to increased cancer or cholesterol or heart disease with long term use of nrt.
