Nicotene and Bedtime Stories

Nicotene is a stimulus blocker extrodinaire, one of the benes that smokers get. Increased ability to focus and stay on task, etc. (This is generally speaking of course.)

So, if you've just given up a great stimulus blocker you'd be more aware of all the little mind/body/environment things that went on before but unnoticed. This could lead to restlessness, wanting to pace, etc.

When I've quit before, I don't recall that particular problem. I was more of the I want to scream all the time type.

Good luck with sleeping.

Oh--I have a favorite book on tape that I put on sometimes at bedtime. The speaker is good to listen to, the book is a Jungian analysis of abandonment, including telling about archetypes and myths.

So, it's almost like a story. That captures my attention pretty well, and helps when I'm thinking too hard at bedtime. If you have something like that, might be worth a try.
