    Although essentially a non-smoker, for years I enjoyed a good cigar (I never inhaled). Some years ago, I felt after the last one that my body was saying "this is not a good idea". Ever since I have had no problem with abstaining, although I sometimes feel a little nostalgic.

    Pot has its downsides too... I wouldn't use one drug to fix your habit of another, just becomes a vicious cycle..

    Nicotine gum?

    [QUOTE=SCI-Nurse;1147815]Smoking and the use of other tobacco products (snuff, chewing tobacco, etc.) is one of the most unhealthy habits possible for a person with SCI.

    Hi, I successfully quit smoking by using nicotine gum; however, I've gotten hooked on that now. Is this equally bad on bone health as smoking? Please let me know - I will quit for sure if yes...even though it helps me "get through" stuff...
    Thanks!!

    blah blah blah :-)

    "You can die drinking a glass of water, but has that ever stopped you from being thirsty?" That was my grandfather's favorite saying and it really make sense. Don't get me wrong I'm not being a fool in saying that smoking is good for you. I know that smoking isn't good for you, but the worst thing for any person to in my imagination is to walk around like chicken Little thinking about what can fall on them next.

    I also got hooked on Nicorette also when I quit. Does the gum affect circulation the same as cigarettes?

    I just wonder what the research says about vaping (electronic cigarette)? I do know if I smoke a real cigarette my body's nerve pain is a 100! I am in so much pain it is absolutely krazy. So that right there tells me I am not suppose to be smoking. But i have went to vaping instead.
