Any Smokers?

Postby CityMouse » Fri Oct 19, 2018 4:03 pm

I've just been pestered to attend a Nicotine Anonymous meeting. I really am not interest in social interaction. I was told by the group member that people smoke to create a barrier between themselves and an unsafe world. I didn't realize that most smokers isolate themselves.

Can anyone relate?

I haven't smoked in 18 years. I don't recall ever doing it for isolation but maybe it's different these days. At times, I saw it as a break or chance to get away from what I was doing.

I started smoking because we got more breaks in basic training if we did

I started smoking when I was 16 because it helped me cope better with dissociation. I only do it when I am dissociated or when ai struggle with anxiety although when I was using heroin the amount increased. I want to quit but I think it would be too much to cope with right now.

Are you chain smoking citymouse? I don't think it is universal that smokers isolate themselves.

Yes, I'm chain smoking but hoping to cut down.
