    having not vaped since moving down to Singapore from Malaysia on Sunday, I find myself feeling tired and slightly depressed. I am guessing this is nicotine withdrawal. I had stopped drinking some months ago so really only had one remaining vice - vaping. I never thought it would be so addictive.

    I had thought of buying tobacco but really would never forgive myself if I lit a smoke having stopped years ago.

    Anyway, enough of my ramblings. But kind of sucks cannot get vape here..

    Nicotine is a major anti-anxiety drug, a dopamine agonist, and has a lot of oddities neurologically. Nicotine withdrawal symptoms vary widely by individual. For some people it’s not a big deal. Others can become almost non functionally aggressive or anxious. I don’t know what options they have for nicotine replacement therapies over there. Patches might work for you. Assuming they even have them. There may be other options available if they don’t. The issue as I understand it is one of the bigwigs over there owns all the cigarette companies and doesn’t want things eating into his money pot.

    My personal solution lately is “don’t go to Singapore” so I’m of limited use.

    thanks for replying! I appreciate your comments on the issue I raised. I use to recover quite fast in the past when quitting cigs, but I suspect the nicotine levels in the juice was on the high side and more addictive. Hence the stronger withdrawals.

    A while ago I was in a hospital for 5 days and couldn't vape. There was a lady there who wore a nic patch during the day, and had it replaced every morning. At least they let us have coffee.. Anyway, during those 5 days I had no urges or cravings although one of the first things I did once home was grab my vape.. Even during the 2 hour ride home I wasn't like, "Oh I can't wait to get home."..

    That’s interesting! I guess we are able to psyche ourselves up in different ways to cope with things. The mind is very powerful.
