still going strong. i had a dream about smoking and woke up thinking i had done it but i didn't. i have two cigs on my desk just sitting there, it gives me comfort or something. they are still there so i didn't smoke

how is everyone?

Eulogy 01-03-2012 09:49 AM

i had one on the first.

last sober cigarette was the 24th. not beating myself over drunk cigarettes yet. and those are becoming a lot less frequent anyway.

the thing with me is i keep my addiction at bay for at least the past 7 years, but it's pretty strongly rooted... i almost never smoke during the day, maybe one with a friend or something from a time to time. but at night i always smoke 1-2 cigs or joints.
it's been that way for years, with occasional withdrawls, but i always come back.
it's most definitely not dependency on nicotine, or whatever - simply the ritual of closing the day with it. the occasional daytime cig is like what order_66 said - social smoking

You guys give me hope that my brother will quit smoking one day.

Then I look outside and reality hits

*sigh*

whoever says cigs are harder to quit than opiates has never been addicted to opiates

Quitting these is weird too. I haven't been successful entirely but I've taken long breaks. I love pills, but sometimes I cannot fucking think when I have been eating them a lot. When it gets to the point that I don't remember if I'm high or not I think it's break time. That should happen again in a few weeks...

Sometimes benzos make me outrageously angry. Has this happened to you? I find that odd because they are used as anti-anxiety medicine and yet they are increasing my tension. This only happens when I have been using them for many days in a row though, so I guess that's all I need to know.

reprise85 01-10-2012 10:27 AM

yeah i've seen people in benzo rages before, it's a paradoxical reaction but isn't super rare, afaik

Trotskilicious 01-10-2012 10:41 AM

whenever i try to quit i get really really depressed and hate everything that ever existed

like that thread about how empty and hollow life is was 48 hours without a smoke

Dude I wanna trip with you one day :D

Part of me thinks with our combined passion for drugs, we'd become really rich and really arrested !!!

reprise85 01-10-2012 11:33 AM

i don't even do drugs anymore but i would like to trip again some day for sure and smoke pot occasionally

i cant control myself with downers :/

dean_r_koontz 01-10-2012 11:34 AM

reprise85 01-10-2012 11:47 AM

teh b0lly!!1 01-10-2012 11:53 AM

i'm DEPENDANT on my mediction, without it i feel like i'm being judged and prosecuted for a crime i didn't commit. with the medication i feel like i'm being judged and prosecuted for a crime i did commit.

Cool As Ice Cream 01-10-2012 12:07 PM

dean, i will always judge you.

dean_r_koontz 01-10-2012 12:09 PM

i mean persecuted. i think.

reprise85 01-10-2012 12:09 PM

i see, that's not too great of a choice... paranoia vs guilt. sorry it's like that for you

and i get the difference between dependence and addiction
