You can't. You literally can't. Tobacco has been selectively bred to be so fucking addictive. As one who has had to quit multiple times...don't do it. Just don't do it. You've smoked before, the nicotine has rewired your brain already. Just stay away from now on.

Yeah just want to reiterate as a constantly-struggling-to-quit cigarette smoker, that nicotine ranks third behind opioids and barbiturates for its addictive potential, just ahead of cocaine.

MAYBE you could swing a few cigarettes a week, but why? If you can get a hold of weed, it is vastly superior in every way. If you want a social habit, get a nice vape box and some nicotine-free juice. The tobacco flavored ones aren't exactly like cigarettes, but there are some good flavors. Personally, I go with menthol juices, since they "feel" the most like a cigarette to me and the brain.

Thank you... That's sort of my main issue being straight edge... What do I do in social situations, parties? Hold a soda? I don't even have caffiene and I avoid sugar
