How many smokers out there?

#1

I’ve read that 75-90% of schizophrenics smoke. I smoke a pack and a half a day. Do you smoke, and if so how much. I feel that it relieves my anxiety somewhat, and it seems to give me a break, something other to do than just being caught up in my own thoughts. Does smoking help you?

I smoke like 12 cigs a day. I just smoke a cig every hour, it helps with anxiety and I just like it for some reason. Caffeine makes me want to smoke more.

Nope. Always had a cigarette phobia. Afraid they might explode, start a fire.

puff yes I smoke! About a half or less of a pack a day. I like the breaks and the ritual. I like the stress reduction as well

When I smoked it took the place of doing things, for me. I’ll just smoke another cigarette.

I could never smoke if I wanted to breathe, must have been some sort of allergy.

Used to be a pack a day guy myself. Loved smoking. Everything about it helped. But for some reason, my body wants me to quit. So I’m down to three smokes a day. I don’t really know how that happened.

But if I can be on lower doses of meds… I would gladly give up smoking if I could do that.
