Is nicorette (nicotine gum) patches good for you when not needed, just to keep awake and alert if you need to drive?

In brief: Not the best choice.

Nicotine replacement is only designed to assist in smoking cessation.
While it is true that nicotine has some alerting characteristics there are better products to keep you awake.
