True or false : Quitting smoking cigarettes is as hard or harder than quitting heroin or alcohol ?
Personal story on this if you can , please ?

Have a good evening , all . D :)

JB, Me 26 years sober : still smoking
My sis 7 years heroin free : still smoking . Tough thing to quit , right ?

That's what I have read and heard - that the physical and psychological effects of stopping smoking are harder than quitting heroin. And with cigarettes, you see people smoking everywhere, or can still smell it on them, or see the cartons on the shelves at the store, so it's something that's hard to stop thinking about. You don't see people doing heroin on their breaks at work (atleast no where I've ever worked, lol).

I remember how hard it was for me to quit. I felt like total crap for weeks, my heart was racing like crazy, dizziness, irritability, etc. I ended up quitting by eating all the Enteman chocolate chip cookies I wanted every time I wanted a cigarette. Seriously! I gained weight, but took it off after the strongest cigarette cravings stopped.

It's worse of course if your significant other smokes. When I quit smoking, I was dating a guy who detested smoking, so I had an extra incentive =). I didn't get to kiss him until I brushed my teeth five times and if I wanted to smoke, he'd make me go outside, even in sub-zero weather.

I hope that you can quit someday honey. I know it's so darn hard to quit. Heroin users can go to clinics at the taxpayer's expense. People who want to quit smoking are on their own unless their insurance will cover treatment to help them.

Take care my friend.

I never smoked but I went to a smoking cessation seminar once. The leader said that people who smoke view the cigarette as their best friend and that is why they can't give it up and that it is an addiction stronger than anything, food, and heroin included.

i think it depends on the person, so i would say it's really not a true or false situation.

Miss Sexy McTopheavy
Honestly...I don't think so. I quit smoking 3 years ago, after13 years of smoking, I know how hard it is! But, alcohol with-drawls can actually result in death, heroin with-drawls will make you wish you were dead...tobacco, not quite that rough.

Good luck, I know it can be done!

I quit 24 years...started in Sept again. Next week I am starting the e-cigarette...will let you know.

Very True Hun. i wish they had places for smokers like they do for addicted drug addicts

All I can say is that I've never heard of rehab clinics for smokers. So I would say false.

Big Dog D
i would say yes.

This is true, they've studied what's in a cigarette and there are substances similar or as bad as heroin and crack in cigarettes which are part of the physical dependency, not just nicotine.
Both of my parents smoked for 35 years and then quit with spiritual help. Mom had no trouble. Dad quit and then would sneak one evey so often off someone who smoked. Then he started having trouble breathing. He was put on oxygen and could do vey little for the last two years of his life. I helped my Mom take care of him until he passed. My parents are both born-again and I know my Dad tried his best to quit. I tried amoking as a teen and was terrible at it! I am allergic to it! My Mom prayed for me to be able to quit and I stopped without any cravings or side effects. She prayed for me and just told me to trust the Holy Spirit, that he's take all that away and he did! Still like the smell, just would never smoke! No one should die like that-truly horrible. I'm glad Daddy's not in pain anymore!

Moon :)
I trust you will succeed!! :)

Best of luck to you, dear friend, and best of health!! :)

False. I used to smoke and used to drink heavily. I quit smoking about 26 years ago and curbed my drinking. I still drink but I have to be careful not to slide back into my old ways. I only drink wine and an occasional beer now with the knowledge and awareness I need to be careful of how much I consume. I never really considered myself an alcoholic but I was drinking too much and would have crashed and burned if I hadn't realized it when I did. I was a heavy smoker and realized I needed to stop that as well and quit cold turkey. It did take several attempts but the first attempts were half-hearted. I found it very difficult to quit until I got angry enough with myself to pull it off :)

Never had a alcohol or drug problem, but I smoke and I know it is way hard...But now there is the ecig..check the site...type in search...e-cige-8 that is the newest one..my friend got it, it taste just like a cig and he now never smokes anything but that..u can start with high nicotine then med. low and no nicotine...It looks like a cig..emits smoke when you inhale, exhale..the smoke is steam,..the cartridges are about 1 pack of cigs average 2 dollars or so...the large set sis and I ordered come with everything..2 chargers etc. and 63 cartridges for 135.00 We have them on there way now, will no longer be smoking reg. cigs..and also the ecig can be smoked anywhere..I am trying to get the word out..this product is saving lives...hope all who read this and smoke take the time to research this and buy it.

I have never been a smoker, but I have seen so many people that smoke and they just can't quit

In a way it is more difficult, because you know that at any time of the day or night, you can walk to the nearest corner store and buy a pack of smokes. Copping some smack may be more difficult, and even bars close at some point.

Caffeine and nicotine are stimulants and I use them to relax. Alcohol is a central nervous system depressant and I used it to fire things up and get the party going.
