Question for smokers

Postby Nik Colon » Thu Jul 16, 2015 2:22 am

I know most people tend to smoke more when drinking, but do u get that with pain meds? I notice after taking oxy I tend to crave cigs more. Is it just me?

Alcohol and narcotics give you the same feeling of euphoria when they first begin to hit you, which may well include various cravings. Plus, if you're euphoric (or drunk), you're not really all that worried about negative health consequences.

As someone with lung involvement, I can't imagine smoking cigarettes again, but having smoked for years when I was younger, I can relate to the urge.

I never had trouble actually quitting (did it many times). I did have a problem getting around to quitting.
