More self discipline than me, I had one a few days ago because of UCAS (I blame them to be honest, broken website).
How long are you off the ****?

I'm trying to ween off and do that yeah, but with college and uni and all that it's a bit too stressful - by this time next year though I should be off

it wouldn't be because of UCAS. It would be because of your response to UCAS. I mention this as not to be provocative. But as to state that it's an effective and integral way to look at it, for if you are wanting to continue with quitting.

Yeah very good point. I mean I'm pretty sure it's been proven (don't quote me on this though, I haven't looked into it) that nicotine doesn't even relax you- it's just the brain tricking itself... so I suppose at the end of the day there's no real reason to keep smoking, but for the sake of not being brave enough to quit

I got told off for smoking in class today.
Spoiler:
Show
I would've preferred it if the teacher had doused my flaming scalp in water rather than giving me a detention though.

Research into smoking and stress has shown that instead of helping people to relax, smoking actually increases anxiety and tension. Nicotine creates an immediate sense of relaxation so people smoke in the belief that it reduces stress and anxiety. This feeling of relaxation is temporary and soon gives way to withdrawal symptoms and increased cravings.

Smoking reduces nicotine withdrawal symptoms, which are similar to the symptoms of anxiety, but it does not reduce anxiety or deal with the underlying causes.

So therefore, people who smoke cigarettes have double stress and anxiety and are extremely unlikely to tackle the root.

It's a horrible game and a complete weakness on the part of the smoker. They have fallen for the second biggest trick in the book. And if you are religious AND a smoker, then you've fallen for the two biggest tricks :P

N.B I smoked for ten years and two years free from the shackles from which I placed myself.
