One more thing, by maintaining my cigarette habit/addiction does anyone think this wouldn't keep the addict mind alive or would I be a ticking time bomb by keeping this tobacco habit? I don't want to give up tobacco I didn't want to with weed but I did just to get that need of high feeling away. So let me know thanks
Smoking cigs actually affects our serotonin levels. (like some antidepressants). I wouldn't try stopping narcotic pain meds AND nicotine at the same time, but that's just me.
Big WAHOO for almost 3 weeks clean!!
Congrats!!! That 30 day chip is coming up...go get it!!! Great job.
Congrats on 3 weeks - I'm right there with you. My last pain pill was 3 weeks ago today on Jan 8th. I'm glad your going out and doing things, enrolling in school, etc. Staying busy is important, as boredom can be dangerous. Do whatever it takes to keep your guard up. Smoking ain't great for ya, but just tackle one demon at a time.
Good job on 3 weeks!! Get more comfortable in your recovery before you tackle the smoking.
