Gum vs. Patch which is a better option

I think the gum is a wonderful tool because it allows you to be in a natural state for long periods of time breaking you of the many habits associated with nicotine addiction.
Plus when you get a craving the gum truly subsides that craving if used as directed (bite-bite park for 20-30mins), however the patch I disagree with.
I think the patch will make you want a cigarette because you keep pumping nicotine into your system throughout the day so you aren't in a natural state (learning to cope without having any nicotine) and also what will you do when a craving hits you? Probably go smoke a cigarette.

2 Thumbs up to the gum it really helped me quit 2 years ago!
