Post Smoking. • Posted: Fri Sep 05, 2008 8:30 am
I broke down from stress one day after work, and went and bought cigarettes about 2 months ago. I'd smoke them off and on, but now I'm becoming addicted. I wouldn't expect much from the younger crowd for my solution, but are there any substitutes that I can use, rather than lighting up?

Disclaimer: Don't smoke. It's NEVER a good idea.

Same thing happened to me. Whenever my nerves where shot, I would have a smoke. After I split up with latest ex, I was stressed a lot.
so i smoked like 6 cigarettes a day and then I got addicted. so now i smoke.

If youre not addicted yet then you shouldnt smoke more then 2 cigarettes a day. I smoke almost a pack a day now. Its not something I would suggest.

Chew gum instead of smoking.

I don't know if that could work for you, but when I smoked it was usually cause my mouth was bored... LOL if that makes any sense.

Judging by the number of commercials I see related to this subject, there are a number of ways. Most of them work on reducing your nicotine addiction. Patches and gum are the two most common ways to quit, though I'm not sure if you need to see a doctor to get either of them. :S

Both my grandmother and father just took cough drops every time they wanted to light up. Both have stopped for years now, well, my dad, my grandmother started again when one of our personal friends passed away.

I think my mother did the same thing, but I'm not sure. But yeah, like TFO said, although you're getting addicted to the contents, the fact that it becomes part of your routine also affects you, keeping your mouth busy is helpful. I can tell you one thing, if you commonly put a pencil or toothpick or something in your mouth, you'll notice it hard not to.

Just a little side note to prepare yourself: Physical withdrawal symptoms include "heavy sweating, headaches, muscle twitches, pounding eyes, insomnia and irritability."
Phase two withdrawal symptoms include "feelings of mild unreality. Since nicotine improves synaptic transferral and improves concentration, when you take it away you're left with a feeling that the world has taken on a decidedly dreamy cast." Or, as Steven Davis puts it, like "people and cars...passing by me on a moving screen..."
Sounds like fun.

If you feel the urge to smoke, try eating a sucker.
