Tobacco contains a class of chemicals called beta-carbolines. They act similarly to antidepressants in your body. When you start to feel the withdrawal, the bigger part of it is actually antidepressant withdrawal and it can be extremely unpleasant.
This is the reason the nicotine usage will go up when you try to stop smoking with nicotine patches. You simply aren't getting the beta carbolines, so you substitute by increasing nicotine intake.
