Spoken like a true addict. Yeah. was one myself and smoked a pack a day over 25 years.
It’s a nasty drug and it’s highly addictive and taxed to heck out here. I couldn’t afford to smoke on disability but still have friends who still smoke and they are poor.
I came out the other side and there’s no useful purpose to it as I say. The positives are lost in it’s addictive properties and there’s better drugs out there if you really want to look at it. Shtie. I enjoy my coffee these days and I’m not tearing my hair out simply because I haven’t had one for an hour.
It’s still expensive but that is the problem. Never could get off like many on nicotine replacement. Champix doesn’t work for everyone but it does work and it was so easy. Had a bit of discomfort early but just got to quit date and it was all too easy.
I got off in 2009 and don’t miss it. Yeah you have a drink or your friends smoke but I know I have one I’ll feel sick but I have 10 I’m a hopeless addict again.
I choose not to be an addict anymore and it’s much easier and my wallet agrees.
Nicotine patches worked really well for me but I couldn’t wear for more than an hour at a time and never more than 2 days. I’d also smoke on them so big yikes. But everyday I tried id quit for 5 days after… Strange.
