  1. Smoking cures my depression, i was suicidal and severely depressed and i decided to just buy my first pack, never smoked before that so that debunks withdrawal/addiction. Yes it was disgusting, and i fell like puking after first 2 but 30 min later my depression was gone and i was happy and had will to live. SInce then I smoke 2-4 ciggs a day. Im happy now and no longer suicidal, tobbaco is a cure.

  2. You dont need NRT… if you have an addiction to nicotine. Quit, read allen carr easyway to quit smoking. Quit for good. You wont be giving anything up other than a disgusting addiction to nicotine. Day 19 nicotine and smoke free…. I smoked 30 a day, 38 years. Funny how nhs never promotes allen carr.. when clearly it works its like they want to keep people addicted to nicotine.
