Welcome to HCM
Cigarette consists of tobacco. In tobacco main alkaloid is nicotine
. Nicotine causes physical and psychological dependence. When abruptly stopped it may cause withdrawal syndrome having symptoms like restlessness
, irritability, mood swings, headache, body aches etc. I would advise you to consult a Psychiatrist
for expert opinion. Medicines like Nicorex which contains nicotine in gum form are given to replace deficient nicotine. Buporpion is given to reduce craving for tobacco. So if symptoms persist visit a Psychiatrist.
