Default Nicotine: Is it a stimulant or relaxant for you?

This is what I am not understanding yet but I feel it might be also linked to the flavor itself.

When I smoke things like melon, mint, grape: they somehow make me relax and fall sleep.

However, when I smoke things like two apples or peach: they somehow make me feel more energetic and unable to sleep.

Just thought to ask you guys how do shisha flavor or nicotine effect your body (whether they make you eat more, poop more, sleep more, etc)?

I am quoting from wikipedia:

Quote:
Nicotine's mood-altering effects are different by report: in particular it is both a stimulant and a relaxant.[25] First causing a release of glucose from the liver and epinephrine (adrenaline) from the adrenal medulla, it causes stimulation. Users report feelings of relaxation, sharpness, calmness, and alertness.[26] Like any stimulant, it may very rarely cause the often uncomfortable akathisia. By reducing the appetite and raising the metabolism, some smokers may lose weight as a consequence.[27][28]
And one thing made me confuse is this

Quote:
Nicotine is unusual in comparison to most drugs, as its profile changes from stimulant to sedative with increasing dosages, a phenomenon known as "Nesbitt's paradox" after the doctor who first described it in 1969.[35][36] At very high doses it dampens neuronal activity.[37]
So does it mean if you increase dose (smoke more) you start to become more relaxed, not stimulated?

And where can I find good resources to read / understand how shisha nicotine work?
