In brief: They help.

Nicotine replacement products have been shown in clinical studies to improve the rate of smoking cessation over quitting "cold turkey".
Even better are combining support groups with nicotine replacement. This brings the sustained quit rates to 15-17%. Even better is the prescription drug Chantix which has the most success, but does have some side effects as well.
