So having a potential MS diagnosis is obviously making me reconsider a few life choices…I feel like minimizing emotional stress and quitting smoking are probably the most important.
But my god, I’m truly an addict. Quitting smoking is HARD at the best of times, but when life has gone all uncertain and even more stressful, I found instead of doing the best for my health, I’ve been reaching for the cigarettes and wine a bit more.
Is there anyone here who quit when they found out? How did you do it? I know it seems silly like, of course with this potential diagnosis or bad health quitting smoking should be a no brainer and I’ve been told if I was that worried I’d be able to just drop it.
I’ve tried patches, vaping, gum, cold turkey, meditating, all kinds of tricks. I’ve even tried professional help and that hasn’t worked. I can’t take any smoking cessation medications because of the psychiatric effects.
