I just read a study on how nicotine addiction causes mice to fear withdrawal. At least I think that what this means. So does the drug and the addiction actually create that feeling in us before we quit? I know that I feared that I wouldn't be able to quit.
But I could, and I did. 23 days today.
Here's a link to the National Institutes of Health comments on fear and nicotine. Please correct me if I'm wrong here. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16177040/
