Since I have way too much time on my hands and am constantly feeling low and stressed out, I think I have developed an addiction to cigarettes. I used to be able to smoke here and there socially, but it is taking a lot for me not to buy another pack right now. It's been about 3 weeks since I bought a pack but I have been smoking at school when people offer me cigarettes. I think I want to smoke cigarettes because they are bad for me. When I buy a pack I chain smoke, sometimes smoking 3-5 at a time because I like the way it burns my chest. It is part of that self harm mentality, where if it will cause me pain I want to do it. I know cigarettes are legal and when people smoke them it isn't seen as substance abuse per se, but they are incredibly harmful and I feel that right now I might enjoy the pain they cause me but later on in life I'm not going to enjoy it so much.
