Statistically pipe smokers live 7 years longer than non-smokers. Why? The combination of nicotine and quiet time spent leisurely puffing away is a sure-fire remedy for the greater danger of stress.

Sounds like a load of horseshit to me.

I get my nic from vaping. But it acts just like it should, as a mild stimulant, not a damn xanax.
 Quoting: gurunade


Xanax acts as a mild stimulant. Anxiety can freeze you up in a way that feels like lethargy or a need for a stimulant. It seems paradoxical or ironic, but increasing GABA calms and cools the brain which releases energy to act effectively.

Re: Nicotine fights fear, anxiety, PTSD
Nicotine seems to keep the allergies at bay also.
My husband has been trying to quit for several years now. I have noticed, as has he, that everytime he eliminates the nicotine, he has allergy problems. Allergy pills do not help. The only thing that does help is nicotine.
I'm not going to push him to quit nicotine, just cigarettes. He can get his nicotine through the e-cig or other means. The allergy problems just are not worth it.

The rat pineal gland contains a high density of neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs).

[link to molpharm.aspetjournals.org]
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21106518


NICOTINIC SIGNALING IN TIM PINEAL GLAND
Many of the numerous effects of nicotine on the human body are still unclear . Our preliminary data suggest that nicotinic acetylcholine neurotransmitter receptors are located in the pineal gland and play an important role in its function.
Furthermore, several recent studies have provided evidence for the presence of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors .(nAChR) iu the pineal gland.
Tarquini et al . (Tumori, 80 :229, 1994) found elevated circulating melatonin levels in chronic tobacco smokers. We found that nicotine stimulates the expression of NAT mRNA (PRELIMINARY DATA) . These data suggest a role of nicotinic signaling in the regulation of pineal function.

So what would you tell to all these people that are feeling much worse after quiting smoking?

Feel worse for giving up smoking...14 months down the line.
This is certainly not an inspirational post...but it is an honest one.
Please do not be discouraged by this post and ensure you read right through until the end.
I have been waiting and waiting and waiting to feel this burst of health and vitality that is supposed to occur when you give up the smokes.
It just hasn't happened.
I have been to my G.P (family doctor) because I have been feeling so rough and he says that it takes time!Like I said, it's best to get checked out by your doctor as I have done.
Apparently, you feel worse before you start feeling better.I reckon that's where I am at right now.

I too quit and have the same exact symptoms breathing issues, and a terrible cough has been 3 weeks.

Same problem here. I cought a horrible chest cold from my grandson. In turn, i have asthma which seems worse with the rotten chest cold. I found Zyrtec which really did the trick for my allergies. Now the zyrtec is not holding up for me like it did 2 weeks ago so i have had to go back to the inhaler which i haven't had to touch since January of 07.
I have not smoked for almost two weeks and all i do is hack and cough.
I am almost afraid to stop smoking all together for fear that i will get something else.
Many people that i talk to tell me the same thing. They quit smoking after many years and develop something else.
My friends dad quit smoking after 40 years. Now he has every ailment under the sun. He was doing fine, then after about 6 months he started having all kinds of issues.
I don't know what to do.

Hi there, I am 28 and am the same. Quit smoking 3 weeks ago and SO SICK still. It's terrible hacking up, breathing problems, chest is killing me from cough, why?!!!!!!!!!!!!

I quit smoking about 2 months ago after smoking casually for about 14 years ( a pack a week,plus weed) I also had asthma when I was younger.
Ever since I quit smoking I feel like I'm going to die, for the first time in 14 years I have gone back to using my albuterol inhaler because i feel like my lungs are closing up on me and this is the only relief I have.
There is also a taste of blood or iron when I cough which worried me so I went to see a doctor and she said bascially the same thing all you guys here have been saying.
Sometimes too though I have problems sleeping because i have trouble breathing.
This is terrible and I hope I get over this soon.

My Name is Dee and I quit smoking in Feb. It is now October 28th and I feel worse today than I did when I was smoking. I quit smoking because Heart disease is common in my family and i had just found out my younger brother age 42 has heart disease . I became concernec enough that it made me quit. Well I must say, I can not believe i felt better when I smoked. Since I quit, I have had cat scans, lung scans, a left and right heart catherization and so many other tests its insane. They Find NOTHING. the only thing that was discovered is Sleep apnea , so now i look like an alien when i go to bed with this mask on.
I just dont know what to do about how I constantly feel like I am gasping for air. Its like someone is holding their hand over my mouth and nose and they only let me take tiny bits of air in.
Its almost feels like im suffocating.
Crazy huh?
anyone else have any idea how long this last, I mean, come on its, been 8 months allready , shouldnt I feel better now with no smoking , or am i better of going back, allthough I hate the smell of them anymore,.
thanks

I understand exactly what you are experiencing! I decided to get healthy last September so i quit smoking and joined a gym. I watched what i ate, hired a trainer and didnt smoke. I also started to get really sick. It started with sneezing and coughing. Then progressed to a tightness in my chest and finally not being able to breath. It was really scary! I went to the doctor, he tried allergy medicine and an inhaler. The allergy medicine helped some the inhaler was useless. We did a pulmonary test and the dr said i was looking at COPD, he gave me spariva. Within 48 hrs my breathing was worse and i began having severe chest pains. I stopped the spariva immediatly. I truly think the chest pains were caused by struggle to breath taxing my heart. Went back to the Dr and he sent me to a specialist. The Specialist has put me on Singulair at night and my allergy pill in the morning and my life has finally gotten back to normal. His explanation is that my immune system is busy trying to repair 20 years worth of smoking damage so i am more susceptable to everything else.
I'm glad i quit smoking but i sure wish someone would let you know these are some common side effects. All you ever hear and see are the benefits which are true but when you are struggling to breath and feel as if you are dieing it would have been nice to have a heads up. When i finally found this site i was so relieved to know it wasnt just me. I was very surprised to see so many people with the same problems. I thought i was the only one in the world to quit smoking and cant breath, go to the gym and get fat. LOL

I understand where you are coming from as well. I can't figure out for the life of me why quitting smoking would actually make you feel worse. But I'm glad that I found this site...so I know I'm not the only one experiencing some of these issues. I do understand the bodies need for repair after so many years of abusing it with smoking...I quit about 10 months ago. Have felt pretty good most of the time since I've quit except the last couple weeks. I have always gone to the gym...even as a smoker. I have a harder time breathing now than ever before. The last 2 weeks I've noticed what feels to me like asthma type symptoms...scares me so much. Afraid to go to the dr. I might try an Allergy Medication as I've read that so many others are trying.

By sending specially calibrated flickering light through the eyes and into the brain, ROSHI In-Sight Glasses help “DisEntrain” the mind, freeing it from its unhealthy cyclical patterns. The brain attain a meditative “normalized” state in which it becomes totally at rest …yet attentive at the same time—similar to the brain of a Zen Master. It is in these “quieter” EEG moments that the brain “corrects” itself.

Damage to the Insula Disrupts Addiction to Cigarette
Thread: Insula, the center of awareness threat detection
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32424032


Granular insular cortex inactivation as a novel therapeutic strategy for nicotine addiction
The inactivation of the granular insula decreased nicotine self-administration (SA) under both fixed and progressive ratios without affecting the SA of food under the same schedules of reinforcement.
[link to www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Nicotine Receptors Found For The First Time In The Mouth Raise New Hopes For Anti-smoking Therapies
A research team in Portugal and the US has found for the first time nicotine receptors in the taste buds. In fact, although most of the toxicity of smoking is linked to other components, it is nicotine that leads to smoking addiction and until now it was believed that this substance had to migrate into the brain to bind its specific receptors and provoke its effects.
This novel pathway is also shown to activate a brain area that when damaged can lead to instant loss of smoking addiction suggesting that mouth nicotine receptors might play a key role in the whole dependence process.
In fact, it has been seen that individuals with an extreme capacity to taste bitterness are more resistant to smoke addiction, while lesions to the insula – a brain area where the gustatory cortex (brain area for the sense of taste) is localised – can radically affect smoking addiction.
If the mouth nicotine receptors are confirmed to be linked to these insula effects, blocking them can turn out to be "the" weapon against smoking.

MRI study finds that depression uncouples brain’s hate circuit
The hate circuit was first clearly identified in 2008 by UCL Professor Semir Zeki who found that a circuit which seemed to connect three regions in the brain (the superior frontal gyrus, insula and putamen) when test subjects were shown pictures of people they hated.
The new University of Warwick led research found that in significant numbers of the depressed test subjects they examined by fMRI that this hate circuit had become decoupled. Those depressed people also seemed to have experienced other significant disruptions to brain circuits associated with; risk and action, reward and emotion, and attention and memory processing. The researchers found that in the depressed subjects:
The Hate circuits were 92% per cent likely to be decoupled
The Risk/Action circuit was 92% likely to be decoupled
The Emotion/Reward circuit was 82% likely to be decoupled

Having the dignity and forthought to put efort into your own life. Make decisions, and don't listen to the addicted EGO that wants to smoke.

It is a toxin. Simple. It may distract you from your unpleasant life, but it won't solve anything.

Maybe put the cig out and think about your life.

If your emotions are dictated from a substence, that's addiction.

Once in addiction you are no longer your self.

Once you are no longer yourself you are susceptible to ideas and information that plague your weak mind and overload your system. This creates the useless human paradigm.

Now you are not yourself, the world is too big, you are focused on the reality of your addicted ego and the cigarette, ultimately never getting anything done because your emotions and motivation are run by a rolled up tube of disease.

Take two shots of vodka in the morning, that will trigger desires and wants while blocking out the static(we are bombarded with more information than we are used to every day, it clogs are mental circuits and confuses us if we don't sort it out.

A 2004 study conducted among 3,500 Chinese physicians found that 23% were regular smokers. There was a significant gender difference, with 41% of male physicians reporting to be smokers but only 1% of female physicians.
Male surgeons were found to smoke more than any other specialty. A study conducted among 800 Chinese male surgeons in 2004 found that 45.2% were smokers and 42.5% had smoked in front of their patients.
In Chinese culture, smoking is connected to masculine identity as a social activity that is practiced among men to promote feelings of acceptance and brotherhood, which explains why more Chinese male doctors smoke than females. Furthermore, physicians in particular may resort to tobacco as a coping mechanism to deal with the day-to-day stress that is associated with long work hours and difficult patient interactions.[33]
One surgeon in Kunming (Yunnan province) described smoking as a phenomenon that is an integral part of Chinese medical culture and one that improves job performance:
Smoking is such a big part of being a doctor here. The director of our hospital smokes. The party-secretary smokes. The chair of my department smokes. And whenever I walk into the duty office, most of my colleagues are smoking. And to tell you the truth, with such a pressure-filled job, smoking is extremely helpful, at times soothing, at times energizing, at times helping me focus my attention when preparing for a complex surgery or facing a stack of paperwork 10:30 at night.
