I was on valium for my anxiety, 10mg. twice a day, it was the only pill that seemed to do anything, but then, they took me off of it. After I accepted that it was gone, I had to find something to calm my nerves. I had heard that smoking could relieve anxiety, so I tried it.
It was amazing, the best I had ever felt in a long time. I started at maybe one or two cigarettes a day, but the next thing I knew, that number had grown to close to eight a day. The more I used it, the more I seemed to need. It was then that I realized I had a Problem.
I decided I had to quit, so I threw the entire pack into the river. I am on the third day cold turkey. The withdrawal symptoms are about done I think, But that is not something I would ever want to experience again.
