DSeid, where is "quitting" in this discussion. I don't think nicotine addicts should be forced to quit. The drug itself isn't the thing that kills people. Your "medical conspiracy" is you have been programmed by your peers to think a certain way that includes"quitting = the goal" and are missing a few key steps.

Such as: human beings find it very, very, very difficult to quit any addictive substance. Until the pharm chemists find a way to reverse the brain changes associated with addiction (or do it with an implant), there are other ways to address addiction. Such as by supplying the necessary substance in a safe way.
