28 - I won't give you the generic DARE speech, so I'll just say that even though that's not the best choice, you're entitled to it. OP, try electronic cigarettes instead of quitting cold turkey.

It does help. I get stressed often, usually when I haven't smoked for a couple hours. I get really frustrated and almost have a breakdown. Kinda sad I know. :( but I couldn't quit even if I tried.

2- You have clearly never been under stress whilst being a smoker. Can't count the days I've been knee deep in work, beyond breaking point with my workload, irritating coworkers, idiot drivers, whining kids, endless problems, and a smoke has calmed me right down. Without cigarettes I'd be severely homicidal, so yes, it does suppress "that crap".

What #88 said. Nicotine only calms down people who are experiencing nicotine withdrawal. Nicotine will have the opposite (physiologically stressful) effect on someone who's never been addicted to it.

They're right. Plenty of studies show smoking only eliminates the stress to your body that is caused by the cigarettes themselves so while it may feel like you're lowering your stress levels, in reality you're just leveling out to where you would've been had you never started smoking in the first place.

123- Just so you know, I HAVE smoked. Just because I have a different opinion than you based on my experiences while I smoked doesn't give you a right to act all high and mighty around me.

130- You do realise people are also allowed an opinion? Having an opinion that differs to your own is not being "all high and mighty". Don't expect anyone to sugar coat things on the Internet, it's not that kind of place.

You smoking doesn't mean you were addicted to the nicotine. It could mean you've had 2 cigarettes. If you really were addicted you'll show support not post comments with no thought

OP should slowly just go from for example 2 packs a day, too 1, then half and so forth. And OP should try a different way to release stress other then wanting to kill people on the bus for looking at them.

Cutting down does not work, but only makes it more difficult. Preparing yourself mentally and quitting cold turkey is the way. 14 years smoking and not touching a single cigarette for over 3 years now, I can say that it works.

Those nicotine patches are the way to go! If I did it (& yes it was bloody hard) anyone can do it. I'm not saying that I was perfectly pleasant for the first month or two, but I didn't kill anyone either! Been two years now since I quit! Do not give up OP!!!!!

Going from daydreaming about brutally killing one guy to daydreaming about...? It does get worse before better. OP is in for a rough week good luck to him though!

I guess for some people it's worse than others. My grandpa smoked from around age 15-40, give or take a few years. One day he decided to quit, and just stopped cold turkey. He hasn't had another one to this day, and he's 58. For most people this isn't possible. I guess he's just stubborn xP

My mother has the same problem. What I did was go out and buy he one of those electronic cigarettes. She says they taste like regular menthols and I don't get burned or smell like her smoke as much as I used to.

Yeah if I go through a day without fantasizing about dismembering and disemboweling every other person I see then its an odd day for me and I've never smoked tobacco.

Dont worry OP, one of my closest buddy left smoking suddenly one day and he had to put against all of these nightmares and stuff. But guess what! Its been more than a year he didnt touch smoke at all, while it wasnt easy but dont worry OP u will get through it too Good Luck
