The key here is 'kick' - it's slang for 'a positive sensation / feeling of satisfaction' ... see here :

For an example relative to the meaning in the context you gave - see under 5 a and b at the above link.

The words highlighted are because I linked to Google's cache of the page to make it easier for you to find the correct part.
