it depends upon if you have taken any tobacco product earlier,my advice do not take second smoke,you may get addicted as it becomes chain reaction smoking-withdrawal-smoking.

I am on the last step of nicotine patches to quite smoking, and the last 5 days I have been experience a dull-moderate ache in my back (kidney area). I have increased my water intake the past 3 days thinking I was maybe dehydrated, but the ache has only gotten worse. Could this pain be due to the nicotine patches?

Hello! I have been vaping for about 4 months. I have Fibromyalgia, severe neck and back pain, I get spasms, have trouble sleeping, excessive tiredness and difficulty with concentration. I take zanaflex, cymbalta, carbatrol and lyvoxerine(thyroid med). I have been wondering if you would know about the good effects of nicotine? I do feel some of my meds may be able to be lessened since vaping. I will be talking to my docs about this when I see them but was also curious if this has been a common question lately?
