This is not hard to quit at all, I was doing it almost every day for about 6 months, haven't packed a lip for about 3 days now and have zero urge to do so. I don't care what the experts say, it's laughable comparing tobacco to heroin
No ****ing **** more people die from tobacco, it's a legal substance so millions of people Have access to it. I guess you're just arguing about pure addiction which in case nicotine is one of the most addicting drugs in the world but comparing it to the heroine is ludicrous due to the severity of the drug. I've seen people even family members addicted to heroine and I'd say its a little more severe then going outside and having a smoke.
Alcohol withdrawal can lead to death, heroin withdrawal(from what I know) can't. Doesn't necessarily mean alcohol is worse than heroin.
I'd rather chew weed if given the option.
Why would anyone in this day and age chew tobacco?
Addiction is so weird. I work with a lot of chemicals and wear a respirator often. I know many, many smokers that wear them while they aren't even working with the chemicals, only to go smoke at every break. I always ask if they wear their respirator when they smoke. Doesn't usually go over well.
Also, to any of you wanting or trying to quit, have you guys tried Chantix? I have a buddy who just quit with the help of Chantix and he smoked for ten years. He said it wasn't super easy but it takes the edge off.
