Re: Changed to e-cig,now lightheaded,dizzy etc
Skipadee, it's called withdrawal and smoking the e-cig just makes it last longer.
To clarify: nicotine releases sugar and fat into your bloodstream, making it so that you have an instant--and provided you continue smoking, steady--supply of energy (it's a stimulant); that's how it acts as an appetite suppressant.
When you cut down or completely cut off nicotine, your body's blood sugar drops a lot throughout the day, making you feel shaky and sick at times, as your body now has to re-learn how to raise your blood sugar (no matter how much you eat, it now takes 20 mins to raise your blood sugar instead of it being instant). It can take awhile for your body to adjust itself, and unfortunately, it cant really adjust and will just continue to go up and down if you continue to dabble in nicotine, as your blood sugar wont be able to get steady.
