nicotine - motivated to study?

Posted by rjlockhart37 on November 15, 2012, at 19:04:58

alright i gotta say im a smoker, full flavor menthols about half or a but more a day....i just started realizing when I smoke often my mind is more intrested in my studies...clearer thought for a while...of course not clearer lungs lol. I read nicotine releases some dopamine, but it is nothing compared to caffiene or other stimulants, its not directly stimulating, but it does give some kind of antidepressantlike effect. I read it is somewhat of MAOI....
"Nicotine is an alkaloid found in the nightshade family of plants (Solanaceae) that acts as a nicotinic acetylcholine agonist and a monoamine oxidase inhibitor[citation needed]"

wikipedia...

but yea when I smoke often i feel a bit calmer at times...usally in the mornings is when it plays a stimulant effect, but like I said its not vary noticable. So im guessing if its often that increases the MAOI effect and that's why it acts as a rewarding substance, it still works with dopamine, and mainly acetylcholine. But I also read when its discontinued the stimulant, and MAOI effect leave causing bad withdrawl, psychologically because you feel like .. sh*t.


anyone else know any thing on nicotine?
