Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
Yes, in your case the anger or short-temper might be one of the Nicotine withdrawal symptoms out of the other symptoms including mild depression or sadness, anxiety, boredom and loneliness.
Your symptoms might be overlapping with depressive or bipolar disorder for which you need to consult your psychiatrist for the detailed analysis as the same cannot be made online.
Hope this helps. Take care.
Note: This post is not to emphasise final diagnosis as the same cannot be made online and is aimed just to provide medical information and no treatment suggested above be taken without face to face consultation with health care professional.
