Hello,

Thanks for posting on HCM,

From your description, it seems that you are suffering from nicotine withdrawal as the symptoms are related to short-term and withdrawal effects. Early effects of withdrawal from nicotine addiction include deficiencies in basal dopamine levels that might initiate drug-seeking and usage. The other symptoms you are presently should subside within a couple of days and you should feel a little better. Other long term withdrawal symptoms do exist and you will have to face them in the future which might lead to relapse if your will power is not sufficient enough.
In order to completely get through this, you will need to undergo a smoking cessation program. Vaping is a good way to go about it and nicotine gum can help further.

Hope this helps

thankyou for ure query..

yes its basically nicotine withdrawl symptoms...u can cope with it by giving ure body nicotine through a different way e.g by taking coffee or tea more frequently than u did before ...nicotine chewing gums is another solution to your problem...whenever u withdraw ure body from componants that have addictive properties ure bound to get withdrawl symptoms..so try the obove mentioned rememdies that would help..take care..
