Same as quitting: cigarette smoking. Nicotine addiction is nicotine addiction, however you are taking it in. Irritablity, lack of concentration, anxiety and depression all can occur. This depends on your biology/genetics, how much you were using and for how long. It can be treated with nicotine replacement therapies like patches, lozenges, gum, and with medications like Chantix and Zyban (bupropion). Cessation programs help.
