What are the Symptoms of Nicotine Withdrawal?

How long does nicotine withdrawal last?

The symptoms of nicotine withdrawal are strongest during the first few days after you quit using nicotine. The good news is that once you get past the initial hump, the symptoms start to decline and after 2-4 weeks they are usually completely gone.

What causes nicotine withdrawal?

When you’re addicted to nicotine, the nicotine binds to the nicotinic receptors in your brain. This causes an increase in dopamine production (that awesome feeling you get when you smoke or vape). Over time, your brain gets used to the nicotine and becomes dependent on it to function normally. This is why you get those irritating withdrawal symptoms once you quit cold turkey.

How do you reduce the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal?

If you’re planning on weaning yourself off of nicotine, it’s virtually inevitable that you’ll have some of these symptoms to a greater or lesser extent. If you completely quit nicotine cold turkey, then your symptoms are going to be severe and unbearable.

The best way to quit nicotine while reducing the impact of withdrawal symptoms is to taper down. The good news is that if you’re a vaper this is extremely easy. Most ejuice brands are available in variety of different nicotine strengths. If you just quit smoking you’ll want to start with a juice that has a higher nicotine strength and gradually work your way down. Eventually  you can work your way down to 0mg juice, which has literally zero nicotine.
