Nicotine and withdrawal symptoms

Even the good feelings you attribute to smoking, ie improved concentration, are really due to relief of the withdrawal effects that come on.

Smoking – some things you might miss : breaking the habit.

Smoking – methods for quitting : why are success rates so low?

You will then find you need to smoke more to feel these effects.

Some suggest it's the long-term effect of nicotine on the brain that causes depression, others that it's the same genes and environmental factors that predispose a person to both mental illness and smoking.

The usual pattern is to find smoking unpleasant at first, but the body and brain quickly adapt and you start to experience its enjoyable qualities.

Caffeine Withdrawal Symptoms Top Ten - Caffeine Informer

Caffeine Withdrawal Symptoms Top Ten - Caffeine Informer

The most common caffeine withdrawal symptoms. If you're thinking of giving up caffeine, you'll know what symptoms to expect from the withdrawal.

Just recently tried to give up energy drinks etc. and I got a huge dose of 8. Ended up just carrying on with them, after about 4 days.

I drink a lot of pop. About a 2 liter everyday. I switched to pop without caffeine. I got headaches and nausea. Then the headaches went away and I got dizziness with nausea. All that lasted about 10 days. Then that quit now I’m on my 4th or 5th day of not getting any sleep. It’s awful. I’ve never had problems sleeping before. So it’s very hard for me.

Whether you should or not depends on how your habits are affecting your own health, your relationships, or the people around you.

The best way for me to avoid all of the above is to cut back slowly and if any of the real bad symptoms show up I’ll grab a can of mountain dew to placate them.

If you’ve ever completed a caffeine detox you know how difficult and painful quitting caffeine can be.
