I haven't had a cigarette for years.

I still want one. It's a terrible, deadly, extremely pleasurable habit.

I quit for a half a year, sort of, by switching to nicotine pouches.  But then life happened and I started having anxiety attacks and among other things tried to distract myself I went back to smoking.  Therapist who I talked to about things when they were at their worst was like, "Well...if it's working...keep doing that.  What?  I'm not a medical doctor."

Check out the Alan Carr easy way method - it worked for me for smoking. Results may vary. Having a biatch of a time quitting drinking entirely. Just want to lose some weight and get back into surfing, but dammit... I hear you on anxiety my friend. Take care.

I find that my anxiety is far less now that I don't drink and smoke, not least because I'm never stressed about almost running out of booze and cigs.

Because nicotine feels good.  Legalize some safer drugs

Eh, I buy 3 months worth at a time.  I'd have to be unemployed for it to be a worry again, although that was the major source of my anxiety.  My work got bought out and I was bounced around a few positions in the new company.  The thing is, that I never understood about anxiety and panic attacks until it happened to me, is that it isn't...a thought.  It's barely even an emotion.  It's physical.  Logically I knew I was fine, do my job, get paid, and if by some chance it didn't work like that, well, just find something else.  But there was this oppressive, physical weight of...anxiety, I guess you'd have to call it.  Couldn't sleep, couldn't not sleep, couldn't eat, couldn't focus.  It's like my brain was running in circles, but there wasn't any actual thought.  No idea, or concept, or anything just...the oppressive weight of it like white noise filling my life.

Drinking would buy enough time to fall asleep, but within a few hours of waking up it would start building and building back up.  Not sure smoking helped at all, really.  The only thing that really seemed to short circuit it was exercise actually.  I hate that, cause that always felt like the most bullshiat advice, but it kind of worked, and after a few weeks of interrupting/short circuiting it as it started to get rolling it started to fade again.  Which is good, because apparently they wont give you the good stuff for it unless you're willing to outright say you're suicidal.  By the time I went to a doctor over it I wasn't...but ONLY because I knew that worst case scenario they'd give me the good zombie drugs and I wouldn't have to feel anything at all.

Maybe we didn't go after tobacco companies hard enough and maybe we aren't doing more to make it easier to quit. Cessation aids should be free.

Smoking isn't the only way to get nicotine, though. But like I said above, cessation aids should be free, which would cover nicotine patches and whatnot.

I had a stemi the day after thanksgiving.  3 stents.    2nd diagnosed MI.  I'm almost positive it was my third, and maybe 4th.  Both during my teenage years.

I want a smoke, or a dip, or a cigar, or a pipe, or any farking thing so bad that I dream about it.  I suspect I always will.

I can close my eyes and feel that burn/hit of a nice deep drag.  That Ahhhh, moment that makes you go unfocused for a second with the first dose of the day. The comfort of snapping a can of snuff so it's packed right.

I Know it's stupid.  Expensive. Dangerous.  And that I'm extra super high risk.  But damn doni want it.
