    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

    For those that have successfully quit smoking cigarettes what helped you stay off of them?

    I've been smoking for nearly 4 years and I keep rationalizing smoking and enabling myself because to me 3 or 4 years of smoking isn't that bad even though it has already had negative side effects/consequences on me and my health. I just wanted tips on how to stay off of them because I know I could quit, I just would want to quit for good. #cigarettes #quittingsmoking #Bronchitis #Smoking #Addiction
