When I quit smoking I actually get psychotic, in the strictest sense, and suicidal. It is extremely aggravating when everytime I quit my husband begs me to start again. He does not smoke and hates the smell and the money spent, but he can't handle watching me implode. My doc is hoping that the right combo of meds will enable me to quit permanent like. The patch has worked, until I go to the lower dose or stop using it.

So, yes, nicotine does affect some people's personality and my psych-doc has reaffirmed this and has shown me abstracts illustrating strong evidence supporting nicotine's positive effects on ADHD and Schizophrenia. I don't know if these results have been reproduced or how accurate they are. I only know what my doc deems genuine, verifiable and interesting in the treatment of these disorders including depression.
Don't know if this helps or just confuses the picture more.
