My brain loves nicotine but my body doesn't.arturo7 wrote: ↑Mon Aug 13, 2018 7:57 pmJust a not one filters: they will reduce the tar, but they will also reduce the nicotine.
Over 19 years ago I was diagnosed with a rare vascular disease that my Drs said 'Kills 100% of patients within 2-3 years". They reckon that my arteries are allergic to nicotine. Pfft, what do they know? Lol.
Seriously though, I shouldn't be smoking. For over a decade I went through the torture of giving up at least a few times a year. Sometimes I lasted a few days & other attempts I'd be nicotine free for several months.
Whenever I'm stressed I reach for a smoke. That's how I've always coped.
Around 7 years ago I dug my hardly used Peterson out of the cupboard & haven't had a ciggie since.
I've smoked daily since 12yo & figured I'd rather die with a pipe in my hand than to eek out a few extra years without (Sh!t, even God smokes a pipe)
But, I'm very cognisant of my nicotine intake none-the-less & while I get away with ordering tobacco from the U.S. (touch wood) I'll try to stick to blends low in nicotine & use filters. At those prices I can afford to puff all day.
