VAPING, sure is a thing.
Having given up smoking seven years ago, was a little annoyed with self when starting again a couple of years ago.
A few young ladies I may or may not have been sounding out for this nor that were smokers. One exceptional beauty was getting the stupider side of me to roll cigarettes for her whilst driving me the hundred kilometres to Wellington family court.
Court, losing access to daughter, other issues. I guess, to most people, it’s just “life”.
To someone who smoked for thirty years of their fourty year old life it was a great gilded opportunity to fall from the wagon. Not like me to dive headfirst from anything without thinking about it long and hard first. Far from it, of course.
Electric power steering nicotine vapour into willing lungs was soon deciding the way to go.
Don’t see a problem with nicotine. Just the delivery method. The chemicals inhaled from traditional spark induced tobacco cremation far out weigh the good the nicotine can do in someone like us.
E cigs are great. However the ADHD side of me losses them consistently.
Constantly enough that three or four hours of a generous Week is spent stressing and climbing into cupboards, under cars, digging through the garden, moving beds… Occasionally to no avail.
TIME TO GO BUY ANOTHER VAPE MACHINE.
Whilst buying another is certainly not entirely out of reach economically for this poor broken backed dick head who claims to be an adult most days — have decided not to buy another out of pure pig headed stubborn self loathing.
In the words of Jeremy Kyle…. perhaps… Maybe that Oprah chick…
CONGRATULATIONS MR NZ FIEND NOT SO JELLY LIKE SIDE.
YOU HAVE GONE 36 HOURS WITH ANY NICOTINE ENTERING YOUR SYSTEM.
Which is true. This jelly like brain of mine has certainly decided bit too replace the vape system. This, rather interestingly, has the side effect of reducing my nicotine intake to zero.
Yesterday was light headed, didn’t even visit mum on her birthday. Rude prick I am.
Stopping nicotine intake instantly probably isn’t the best route. Opiate receptors, cannabinoid, dopamine levels… They all go a little haywire. So,, side effects could be exactly like having ADHD to prior who didn’t already.
Discovering this info about withdrawal has got me re:thinking a few of the old ideas discovered whilst writing this, the worlds shittest blog.
Old ideas #55c ; the dual effect of nicotine and other drugs upon withdrawal.
And totally confirmed another old idea, possibly aptly labelled old idea #6.66…
N.A NAZI types who look down their noses at those who relapse, or turn to drink are dumb arsed…
For they are taking deep drags on cigarettes at the same time as putting down others on drug maintenance programs.
If nicotine calls to you every time you’re stressed, or you’re triggered to smoke by so many things…
YOU MAY WANT TO TAKE A HUG, A BROCHURE and CONTEMPLATE THE FIRST STEP, to paraphrase somewhat correctly…
“# ADMIT YOU ARE A HUGE ADDICT [TO THE EFFECTS OF A SUBSTANCE]”
Something effecting opiate receptors and dopamine levels is not to be sneezed at. And sneezing through a cloud of tobacco inhalation of worthy of grabbing your attention.
And may prove an answer to methadone withdrawal… HUGE CIGARS FOR EVERYONE, administered daily of course, wouldn’t want people splitting them into half and creating a cigarette black market or anything. Paranoid ADDICTION DIS SERVICES world wide would choke on that one.
Meanwhile, little old me. Meaningless life lead…
Had a dream where I found the e cig, and was about to puff on it and threw it away instead.
Guess dreaming at all is a good sign. Seems nicotine is easier than methadone at this stage.
And giving up vaping is easier than smoking. YOU don’t have the whole procession of finding papers, filters, tobacco, rolling, finding lighter, smoking. That is a habit in itself.
Unfortunately – The Neuro pathways created by this repetitive business of smoking have turned into neuro highways.
Time to get back on those side roads by the coast and watch a sunset or three.
Without stinging lips from 18% nicotine liquid leaking over mouthpiece of baking machine.
