Nicotine does have the side effect of causing insomnia as well as nightmares, flatulance, diarrhea, constipation, nausea, palpitations, hypertension, and the ever dreaded hiccups (very problematic while trying to smoke). Obviously this doesn't happen to every one nor does it happen every time one uses nicotine/nicotine products. If it becomes a problem that you can't stand- smoke earlier in the day and let the nic levels decrease by the time you go to sleep. Some other things to try- don't exercise before sleeping, avoid alcohol because once the alcohol wears off so do the effects (then you wake and it's more difficult to go back to sleep). On the lighter side, if you can't go to sleep that gives you more time to smoke another cigar.
Interesting. I actually get acid reflux/heartburn once in a while, but not often at all.
No effect here. If I'm smoking, chances are it is just before I go to bed. Seems that is the only time I can get away. Never really had any issues. Then again, I rarely feel the effects of the nicotine unless I chain smoke several strong cigars.
Yeah they affect my sleep alot. Try smoking an opus#4 late at night. Also I notice I sleep real light and when I do sle ep I have real weird, vivid dreams. Most of which I wouldn't want to discuss on a public website http://www.clubstogie.com/vb/images_cs3/vis.gif
Yes I know this is an old thread.
As a fairly new cigar smoker I've noticed that I don't sleep well often times after enjoying a cigar early that evening. By eliminating other factors I can directly tie this to the cigar. It's hard to fall asleep and I have some skin itching ant twitching. It's really odd but after lots of eliminating other things this is without doubt an effect of the cigar.
The only problem I have is dreaming of finding more Viaje. Yes I dream about my favorite cigars and the sick onsession I have to find more. My precious! Cigars relax me as well so if anything I find myself sleeping well after an evening cigar.
