Could I be addicted?? 😳 Watch

    Hi everyone, I'm just wondering if the following sounds like I could already be addicted to smoking, or whether it's just a one-off feeling that's got nothing to do with nicotine:

    I'm a 17 y/o girl, first tried a cigarette when I just turned 16. I'm not a regular smoker at all, and I didn't used to inhale properly, I've only just started having them again in the last couple of weeks (usually 1-2 a week).

    Now for the past week or so I've been having about 1-2 a day, for about three or four days, inhaling very deeply this time. Yesterday I had 2, one straight after the other and became very very dizzy and could barely walk in a straight line, I went to see the college nurse and she told me that I'd experienced a nicotine hit.

    I was completely fine for the rest of the day and this morning, but right now my body is a bit shaky and I'm feeling wobbly - could this be that I'm craving the nicotine in a cigarette?

    Thanks for any responses

    I definitely think so.
    If you notice weird body patterns like shaking etc and then instantly think of a cigarette, yeah.

    try to limit that, and eventually quit before it's going to be too late

    That's the start of nicotine addiction. Save yourself some future hospital time, and slow down or quit now before it gets any harder.
