Hello, my answer is for my hubby...............so I voted.
I smoke...about half a pack a day....sometimes more depending on my level of boredom or anxiety.
My doctor keeps telling me to quit. When I had my first flare from hell I was so freaked there was no way I was going to quit at that time. My anxiety was off the charts and drugs didn't cut it for me. My only solace (in my little mind) was smoking. Nobody has to tell me it isn't good for me. All smokers know that it isn't. I figure I'll quit one of these days...or not. If my ciggies don't kill me, something else will.
Besides.....I really, really enjoy smoking. If I light up and am not enjoying the current smoke, I just put it out and light up later. They don't always taste good to me. So I only smoke when they do. And when I'm feeling really lousy I hardly smoke at all. I just don't want them when I feel so gross...but I keep trying. How's that for a die hard addict?
