It can happen when i`m working on something,
i drift and think and find myself lighting up the next
sig with the butt of the last - bad habbit, not often
it happens - thinking about quiting, have done it
before but started again. Tried nicotin-gum but
couldn`t get the damn things to stay lit
(ha-ha)
Actually, nicotingum works fine for me, but its
bad for the teeth for one so its better to avoid
it, if possible.

Smoke of choice, marlboro and southstate

Your gonna be fine, but cigs are not healthy (as you already know)
The more you smoke, the more you will feel need to smoke
as time passes, and nicotin affects some of the same parts
in the brain that heroin affects, that tells alot.

Whoa Shawn, that's hardcore.

You'll be fine.

It does happen when I have a drink (or four). I'll lit up and won't be able to stop.

Marlboro Light is the way to go for me.

Oh yes, when i was younger and out drinking,
it was a smoke-athon. It was impossible to
drink and not have a cig nearby all the time.
The nicotin gently fuse with the alcohol making
the "feel" a tiny bit better i guess :)

HEROIN?! really?.. WOW.. that explains a lot.. you know I heard that when people quit doing heroin they can get super inspired musically (if they're an artist).. So maybe i dont need heroin afterall.. I just need a few cigs and im good to go..

Have yo heard of filters to go on the end of your cigarette?.. and they take the tar out?.. someone told me about em but ive never seen or tried em..

btw I was joking with the thread topic but I wanted to start this discussion :D

I tink it might be more that they are out of the heroinhaze,
clearheaded and able to work again that does the inspiration
often :) can be hard to get anything done when you`re on
that stuff. Known alot of people using it, non of them got
anything done over time.

Yes, nicotin goes to some of the same receptors in the brain as
heroin, which would explain why so many struggle so hard to
quit such a simple thing as smoke

Have used the filters, they remove some of the nastyness
but you still inhale alot of crap. And for me it was unpleasent,
it changes the taste and everything

""""So maybe i dont need heroin afterall""""
You dont, very sure of that :) very few
people need that i think

I used to do that back when I smoked, but I didn't think much of it because it was associated with other self-destructive behaviors, to which it paled in comparison.

Sure, I've smoked several packs in one day and then gone back to smoking half a pack a day. It won't kill you, but it might give you a sore throat and make you more susceptible to respiratory infections. I think I got bronchitis right after a tobacco binge once. I think I wouldn't have gotten it had I not smoked 6 packs in 2 days or whatever it was, but I could be wrong.

I don't know about that... it seems like all the bands I listen to who used to do hard drugs, actually went downhill musically after they got off the drugs.

Of course, they always say their new material is "the best they've ever done," but the fans aren't fooled...

I dono.. maybe when they're on them then.. ahah :lol: All i know is Brody form Distillers <3, Elliot Smith <3, and Kurdt <3.. sounds like im condoning heroin now.. thats a rather terrible thing to do.. im just saying its possible that it played a role in their music, because before they all got into heroin their music wasnt AS emotional.. whether for better or worse.

I'm prone to a bit of tobacco binging every now and then.
