It seems almost impossible to get people with mental illness like major depression or bipolar off nicotine. When they stop smoking, they almost immediately experience a worsening of symptoms . I know both because I’ve been through it myself and several psychiatrists and psychologists have admitted to me it’s common. Wonder if NRT through patch or vape, etc., could alleviate this?

Thanks for sharing. Very interesting article.
