Is breast tenderness due to quitting smoking or nicorette lozenges?

I quit smoking 10 days ago. I use the Nicorette lozenges, but only twice a day. I have noticed that my breast are tender, especially around and under the nipple area. Is there a direct correlation between the quiting smoking and breast tenderness, or could the lozenges be causing the discomfort?

Not such relationship between nicotine and breast tenderness has been found yet. Breast tendernes can be due to hormonal changes.
