ive been smoking cigarettes for almost 10 years. ive managed to quit a few times. but only for a month at the most. i keep reading about ways to quit online, and i keep reading that its best to quit cold turkey instead of slowly and gradually. i always try the nicotine patches. they do wonderful for the first couple of weeks. but then i still get cravings that just get stronger and stronger. but if i try cold turkey, its completely hopeless. I'll be smoking in a couple hours, if that. im so done with cigarettes. yet im not. if that makes any sense. i just cant figure out how to remove them from my life completely. the two people i live with are also smokers, which is one of the reasons it is so hard for me to stick with my plan. i was also wondering if there were other things that might make me crave a cigarette. like.. im a regular marijuana user. is there any way that my nicotine addiction could be linked to a marijuana addiction? possibly that just the act of smoking weed triggers an urge to smoke cigarettes?
the reason i ask, is because i am pro legalization and i feel strongly about it. i dont plan on quitting weed. my question is that maybe theres a possibility that if i put the weed down while i try to quit cigarettes, it may possibly make it easier to stop the cigarettes? are there any known cases of weed causing a stronger nicotine craving in the mind?
