hi im back, i just realized this morning, yes you are correct, because i went a half day without vape, almost a whole day. It was miserable, because i consider the nicotine, or the vape, a little stimulator, but even cigarettes do the same thing, but they stink and nasty. Vape is clean, it has fruit flavors so it actually smells nice rather than tobacco. Nicotine is a small stimulator of dopamine, but its not as real stimulants. It helps thinking, and gives a bit of a calm, or a stimulant effect. Many people smoke during or after a stressful event, because of the effect nicotine has. It can be both, stimulating, or calming. I've seen people at the end of the day, after work, sit down outside a smoke a big cigar for an hour. That's the.....it's a reward sensation, but its not like hard drugs. Think of caffeine, it helps you wake up in the morning, then about 4 hours later is when it wears off and feel tired, and out of sorts. Needing another coffee. Same with nicotine but it only lasts for about 30 min or less. I've smoked a cigar before, i didnt think much of it. But if you think back in 1800s and early 1900s, wealthy men or men's clubs would have cigars and brandy, or bourgon after dinner. There both a reward feeling, brandy, alcohol but different types of alcohol have different effects. You know like the smoke rooms, where wealthy or just light up and indulge after dinner.

The thing is, it's a bumper, then after it leaves, some people just smoke a cig in the morning, then a cigg before bed. And then there's chain smokers who smoke almost all the time, 3-4 packs a day for continuous nicotine deliverly. Rarely see chain smokers anymore, because of all the anti-smoking ads.

So yes, but i have to say, it does help somewhat with thinking and concentration even though it is no way close, to methylphenidate. When you smoke, or continuously have nicotine intake, it slightly enhances concentration and some motivation, slight dopamine release. Not like caffeine.

anyways, i just realized that, posting back to you. Thank you for you post
