Teen tobacco use in any form, including vaping, is unsafe. High levels of nicotine in e-cigarettes mean you could be addicted and not even know it. Take our signs of addiction quiz to determine how dependent you are.
For a person who is addicted to a substance, craving is especially strong first thing in the morning, because the body has been deprived of that substance for seven or more hours.
A person with addiction to nicotine/tobacco products begin to feel cravings for the product within 30 minutes to an hour after their last use.
Illness does not take away craving for nicotine/tobacco products in someone who is addicted.
Nicotine and/or tobacco can play an important part in an addicted person’s life. Cravings for these substances can cause he or she to think about using them and planning how they will do so.
When someone who is addicted to a substance stops using that substance, he or she experiences withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are the result of the body not receiving the substance to which it has become accustomed. Someone addicted to a substance may experience anxiety, stress, or even depression, because of dependency on the substance to relieve unpleasant feelings.
Encourage others to take the quiz by sharing on Facebook or Twitter. (Your answers will not be shared).
