Anyone out there having trouble with getting off cigs as well as drugs? Many years I was a pack /2 pack per day. I also drank alot and my heaviest smoking went along with the drinking. I started smokin less until about 1/2 pack a day except when drinking about 2 times per week. I finally gave up cigs totally except when drinking on weekends. All week no cigs and then 2-4 packs on weekend drink days. I seldom do either anymore. I do not llike either cigs or alcohol anymore. Because it was easy for me this way I do not understand how hard it is for others to quit smoking. Can anyone compare cig w/d to hydrocodone w/d?
the cigs will be the third thing to go for me. first the hydros (done), then the xanax (tapering now), and then cigs. I smoke at least a pack a day. I've never tried to quit, not even ONCE over the last 13 years...ugh.. I'd love to hear some feedback on this too! Maybe it is easier than I think it will be?!
The only reason I smoked as much as I did was every time I would pop 5 or 6 pills, I would smoke about 1/2 pack of cigarettes, I was up to about 2 packs a day. I quit smoking the same day I quit taking pills, so I honestly don't know how to compare the two w/d's, I kind of lumped it all into one lovely experience (kidding) =)
I really really want to quit smoking too but dont see that happening anytime soon... I am smoking less as w/d makes the cigs taste horrible. The want to quit is much more prevelant that the actual thought that I am going to quit sometime soon -- which I really want to do before my 30th b-day next year..
Ok, so I smoke cigarettes too. I smoke about an average of 15 cigarettes per day. 10-15 per day. But I'm not even thinking about quitting. I have to quit my Tramadol addiction first. Then I'll stop smoking! I don't drink or do any other drugs though.
No way will cigarette withdrawals make a person feel anything close to the hell a person goes through when withdrawaling from hydrocodones. And I did cocaine for about 3-4 months, every day or at least every other day, then I just quit. No Problem. No withdrawals. I don't understand how people get addicted to cocaine. But that's just me. But I took one drag off my 1st cigarette and was addicted BAM, just like that! BAM! I quit when I joined the Army, for 19 weeks. Then started again. Been smoking ever since. Damn...17 Years! wow i did not realize it been so long wow ... I gotta get off these Tramadols, so I can stop smoking! LOL.
