I've seen a lot of folks mentioning a "buzz" (or a nicotine high) that they feel from nicotine. I don't experience that. What I do experience is a relief from confusion and inability to concentrate -- kind of like getting a refreshing drink of water when your throat is parched. If I go without nicotine, I become unable to function. So I describe that as being "dependent" on nicotine for normal functioning.
I wondered whether there is some kind of correlation.
a) No, I don't feel a buzz; and Yes, I'm dysfunctional without nicotine.
b) No, I don't feel a buzz, and No, I'm not dysfunctional without nicotine.
c) Yes, I feel a buzz; and Yes, I'm dysfunctional without nicotine.
d) Yes, I feel a buzz; but No, I'm not dysfunctional without nicotine.
If the correlation exists, I'd expect to see very few folks selecting options b and c. I'm expecting to see about 10-20% selecting a, and most of the rest selecting option d. Let's see how close my guesses come to the results.
