I'm 19 and I've been smoking for three years. When I get out drinking I need a fag every 20-30 minutes otherwise I go insane. It kinda helps me to cope with everything going on around me, plus it helps me everyday at work and when I'm shopping. It just feels relaxing. Lately I've also been drinking a lot by myself. like maybe half a bottle of vodka at least a night. I can't really cope any other way. So my question for you guys is, do you think that me drinking and smoking is justified by the happiness it gives me to stop from feeling suicidal? Because surely in this scenario it prolongs my life doesn't it?
