    Quitting smoking with depression

    I quit smoking for a month and a half and then something stressful happened with a family member and I went and bought a pack. And another and another. I'm starting over tomorrow. I know smoking doesn't help with stress but my bipolar depression has become unmanageable most days and I guess it's a comfort/crutch. I keep telling myself I have things to live for and being healthy will ensure I'm alive for as long as possible. I'm feeling quite defeated today and would really appreciate some encouragement. #quittingsmoking #Smoking #NicotineDependence #Addiction #Bipolar1Disorder #Psychosis #Anxiety #Depression

    I think I noticed something about nicotine for me

    I think the reason why I depend on nicotine so much is because it forces me to breath in and out slowly. Maybe if I start breathing more I won’t feel the need to smoke so much.

    No more nicotine for me

    Man oh man today is day 6 with no vape. It really isnt near as hard as I thought it would be. But there have been a few times that I REALLY wanted it but never so bad that I broke down. Yay! #NicotineDependence #vapefree #Addiction


    Coffee, #NicotineDependence and #Anxiety

    Im new here and not even sure how this works but i hope ill find someone i can talk to and share my experiences, give advices erc, and am looking forward to it. So ive come to visity grandma, she lives alone btw, and at the moment she has company of a woman thats looking after, she lives about 30 miles from me, and i thought it was a good idea to take on a cycling trip to visit her and stay for the weekend. I cant wait till morning to hop on my bicycle and get the hell outta here. So does anybody else have the problem with toxic people (like my granny) and their negative energy that stresses them out to the point where anxiety reaches its peak and brings panic attacks and storm of intrusive and negative thoughts? Also ive been having a lot of coffee, and im obv caffeine intolerant, also a chainsmoker when anxious which is almost everyday, ex drug user and alcoholic, which was a way of escapism since ive had a lot of family issues, abusive father etc, so dear friends, from your past experiences can it be possible that all of these things mentioned got combined and made me an anxious nervous wreck all over again? Thank you in advance and i wish you all good luck with anything youre struggling with at the moment :)


    Quitting Vaping

    This may not happen overnight...but I am going to try to reduce, limit, and maybe even quit my nicotine addiction. As someone with schizoaffective disorder, who uses nicotine to self-medicate...I'm both scared and excited to see if I can do this. #SchizoaffectiveDisorder #SchizophreniaSpectrumPsychoticDisorders #NicotineDependence
