Default I don't usually smoke but...

For some reason lately, I've smoked a fair share of cigarrettes. I think it's largely due to my stress levels, but I really wish that I didn't feel the urge to. Does anyone have any other recommendations for easing stress under extremely stressful conditions?

Currently, I'm taking 18 hours, and nearly all of my time is devoted to studying. I try my best to complete tasks ahead of time, to take some stress off. Yet, somehow, I'm still overly stressed when it's go time.

I havent had a cigarette in over 2 years. Filthy habit, Nicoderm CQ worked for me.

Set yourself a date and quit, you can do it. If I can do it you can do it. I smoked a pack and half a day for 7 years. I smoked out of boredom which is considerably worse than stress. Keep busy, put the money you save from not buying cigarettes in a seperate place so that you can reward yourself after a month or so.

I smoke 9/10 times when I drink, and unfortunately, it's alot. Rarely do I own a pack of cigarrettes. However, a good cigar will normally tide me over pretty well while drinking

That's exactly it man. I don't consider myself a smoker. I don't smoke every day, and I can specifically recall not smoking for weeks at a time. I don't buy cigarrettes either. I recently quit dipping (dec 24th) and i didn't have a cigarrett for a month or so after that, so I don't think I'm craving nicotine that badly. I mean, I dipped for 5, almost 6 years, and quit cold turkey.

if your not addicted, then why cant you just not smoke? Most agree that it isnt the nicotine that people get addicted to, its the habit of putting something in your mouth, hence is why people gain weight when they quit.

If its a life style addiction they try waking up earlier, excersising more, bascially anything to keep you busy. Fight the urge..........I still say your addicted

dont let a plant govern your life

I dont know what else to tell ya brah. It doesnt take much to get addicted, and the next thing you know you will be spending 4 bucks a day, and killing yourself with every puff.

YAY for cancer. Just stop it, you can do it

i had that opportunity tonight, but it seems that whenever i rendevouz with mary jane, i always end up eating junk food and playing Halo 2, instead of studying. I never smoke when i need to study anymore...why? i present you this situation

I need to study. I smoke, telling myself I'll study when I come down a little bit. I start coming down, then I'm like, hey, i've got more bud....and thats how the story goes
