A little bummed
Yesterday I was so physed that I was doing so well of the opiates that I decided to quit smoking as well.  After all through this whole ordeal I didn't smoke for 2 days.  Well I broke down today and had a couple of cigarettes.  I guess that I will go back to my original plan which was to get my opiate addiction under control and then quit smoking.  Anyone have advice?

omg  DONT EVEN THINK ABOUT QUITTING SMOKING DURING ALL THIS LOL.  that would take just too much.  you are doing very well with the drugs..get beyond that before you p$$s your body off again.  there is plenty of time for that later  as a matter of fact i am gonna quit in about another month.  i will have my 90 days on thursday, so i figure one more  month and i can quit smoking.  wish me luck

Yes, please stay on track with getting clean.  You can deal with the cigarettes later. You are doing great but this is a tuff road and now is just not the time to quit the smokes.  My opinion anyway.  I just know I sure couldn't do it.  Great job , stay strong.

Cathy, congrats on making it 90 days.  I really want to quit smoking before Ian can talk.  I usually don't smoke around him except in the car, and I try to make sure the smoke goes out the window.  But I don't want to do any damage to him.  I just figured that if I could do one I might as well try to quit the other as well.  I don't think I can though.

Thanks for all of the support.  I feel better now.  I really need to quit the pain killers first and then I will think about quitting smoking.

Yeah I felt as if I needed something.  I didn't want a pain killer but I was dying to have a cigarette.  Funny huh?  Well I have been smoking since I was 16 so that would be 11 years of smoking and only 3 years addicted to pain killers.  I have quit smoking in the past but I always seem to go back to it, probably because my husband smokes and my friends smoke.  I will kick this habit too.  If I can kick this opiate addiction which is playing more games with me physical and emotional than the cigarettes ever did, I will be able to quit.  Maybe when I have 90 days under my belt and the mental cravings for an opiate aren't so bad.

I would concentrate on the pills first and when that's undercontrol then stop smoking. Watching these addiction shows they have on TV they always say it's fine to smoke.
