I've been smoking for 7+ years. I love American Spirits and Kamel Reds. I enjoy smoking.
But, I need to quit for a few months.
I quit for 2 1/2 months, but picked it back up when I came back home (most of my friends smoke).
I smoke to relieve anxiety (such as when I'm exploring a condemned insane asylum, or even just outside in social situations), increase my concentration/focus (I have never and will never buy Adderal or Ritalin for various reasons) and suppress cravings (or I have a drink or two, but that adds up more than cigarettes).
I've tried switching to Snus, but I don't like that it's flavored. The mellow tastes weird, and the frost tastes like a menthol. I won't try dip or chew.
Any suggestions for how to find other means to address the reasons that I smoke? I have never found something to replace smoking with. I enjoy smoking, and I've quit before. It's more that I found it to be the cheapest and most enjoyable way to calm down and stay focused when I study, and give me a kick in the morning (not a coffee person).
Surprisingly, none of my friends have actually quit smoking, so they really couldn't offer any advice (a lot of them have smoked longer than I have).
Any insight would be appreciated, because smoking and getting in running shape don't really work...
