Ugh I'm smoking WAY to much! Belle De Jour Due October 8 (boy); 2 kids; Kentucky 19284 posts

I was doing really good with how much I was smoking. I was down to 5 or less a day unless I was drinking and was even going to try and quit at one point. But ever since Isaac died and with all this shit that has happened since I'm up to almost a whole pack a day and on days that I'm more stressed I DO smoke over a pack in a day :(
I've never been this big of a smoker and I hate it. I don't have the money for it and I just don't want to smoke this much in general.
But at this point I'm like constantly thinking about cigs. I don't even think it's the nicotine. I really just feel the "NEED" to smoke!
I can't smoke weed right now since I'm in between jobs so that's out. What can I do to help myself slow down on the cigs again?

Have you tried a e-cig?

Sunflower seeds and use your hands and mouth to break the shells. It gives you the motion that smoking does and keeps you busy.

:? I was gonna suggest weed.. :lol:
Maybe one of those electronic cigarettes..? I dunno, when I quit I just quit cold turkey because I was tired of choosing cigarettes over food.

I can easily smoke a pack a day, I switched to rolling my own or smoking my ecig with the light nicotine. Rolling takes effort and time so I put it off and forgetting to charge my ecig helped me cut wayyyy back. When dh buys a pack it has gotten to the point where I don't want them because they smell worse than loose tobacco and churns my stomach.

Candy cigarettes are actually helpful.

I really want to get an E-cig. I've smoked one before and LOVED it. But they're so damn expensive! :(
