One must wonder about the expertise, if not the sanity and humanity, of those who concoct such laws. It takes no effort to just search up "Symptoms of tobacco withdrawal". If this information is not acted upon by automobile safety organizations, at least, everyone on or near the roads when these laws kick in are endangered---if, that is, anyone obeys the laws. Lawmakers must love law-breakers; they create tens of thousands of them almost every day.

Here's one item from a British medical web site about tobacco withdrawal symptoms. It may be better to have a beer-drinking cell phone user driving near you---or passing your kids on the sidewalk---than an obedient smoke-abstaining driver.

" A smoker's nervous system becomes accustomed to functioning with nicotine.

When you stop smoking, the reduced nicotine intake will disturb the balance of the central nervous system, causing withdrawal symptoms.

The most common withdrawal symptoms are:

  • cravings for tobacco
  • irritation
  • anger
  • weight gain
  • concentration problems
  • depression
  • headaches
  • fatigue
  • constipation
  • restlessness
  • insomnia
  • dizziness
  • anxiety.

Fortunately, the majority of these symptoms tend to disappear after a few of weeks. Some people may experience cravings, concentration problems and an increased appetite over a longer time period. "
