Perhaps none of the following side effects?

Peace and freedom from stress and constant craving or itching for the next hit.
And what is right speech? Abstaining from lying, from divisive speech, from abusive speech, & from idle chatter: This is called right speech.

More money. Better health. Longer life. Not stinking. Not having brown teeth. Not being tutted at by others. Being free of at least one item of sensuality. Etc.

If having never done it then not becoming one who is addicted to nicotine is a good reward.

If having done it and stopping then the immediate reward may be discomfort.
Examine it thoroughly. It's rich with potential insights.

You don’t become addicted to nicotine.

Maybe better to ask:
why is there the need for a reward?

The reward is it’s not a factor

Well, I didn't quit nicotine, but I've switched to low-nicotine vapes from https://shopc9.com. It has helped reduce cravings while still allowing me to enjoy the ritual of vaping. Plus, with the variety of flavors available, it's been easier to find alternatives that suit my taste preferences without the same level of nicotine dependency.

If smoking is a factor… then you are always concerned about it
