Just cigarettes. I've only had five over the past two days, so it's not "abuse" per se, but I have a pathetic need to tell someone about it. Don't feel like you have to reply to this post. If it helps you feel more self-righteous, feel free to tell me to stop. I grew up hearing all the bad stuff about smoking, and I know the risks: lung cancer, emphysema, heart disease, yellow teeth and nails, the smell, etc. Since I'm somewhat self-destructive, the risks are actually a strong incentive for me. I've been wanting to try one for a few months now, just to see what it's like. It's very calming and relaxing, and I'm still getting a slight buzz/rush from it, though that'll probably decrease with time. :unsure: I think I'm also enjoying the quiet rebellion against my mom. She hates cigarette smoking. She's one of those people who wants smoking in public, outdoor spaces to be banned. She's pretty much revolted by it. I love her, but I get frustrated that she only sees what she wants to see in me, not who I really am. Anyway, if any smokers/ex-smokers made it through this post, what's your favorite brand? I currently have a pack of American Native lights, which actually smell a bit like Lipton tea before they're burned. Yum. :biggrin: Also, my mother is visiting me Sunday. I'll wash my hair and clothes, of course, but does anyone have any other tips for getting rid of a mild smell? She's very sensitive to this particular scent, and I don't feel like an argument. I'll smoke outside from now on, but how do I get rid of the smell of five cigarettes from my apartment?
