asthma and smoking addiction
« on: April 16, 2014, 08:24:25 AM »
My ha and amxiety has been bad for the past 3 years, but severe lately. I have allergy induced asthma and I smoke (dumb I know). I've cut down drastically but I know I just have to kick it. I know people with anxiety have shallow breathing/breathing problems....but so do asthmatics. I've been over using my inhalor because I don't know the difference. I have a Dr appt today with my gp to go over all of this. Just wondering if anyone is in my same boat. I want to quit smoking once and for all sooooo badly but the addiction is insane

What have you tried to quit it?  I'm all for harm reduction when it comes to cigarettes.  E-cigs are certainly a far superior option than putting burning leaf smoke into asthmatic lungs.  If you can make that transition, eventually you can cut back and quit.

I've done cold turkey once, that's only because I was pregnant. I wish o never picked up after that! Its soooo much harder this time around with bad anxiety and several stressors going on in my life. I know those can't be used as excuses or justification.
