>>12225> I have anxiety but I never understood how smoking calms people down. In fact, if I haven't smoked in a couple days and then I do, the nicotine actually makes me feel really uneasy. The only time I've found smoking is useful for that sort of thing, for me, is when I'm talking to someone. It gives me something to do with my hands (does anybody else randomly become hyper-aware of their hands when talking to someone? Like what the fuck are you supposed to do with them?!).
Totally, you can always play with your cellphone if you dont have a cig, check messages or just fuck around.
Not only that but also you have something to do at all which seems to be more or less common rather than having akward silence is another factor.
I found it to be calming actually, but it can excite me a bit aswell.
Perhaps it can have different affect on different people.
Well you guys probably know but smoking cigs against anxiety is a bad idea, you should find yourself some other drugs for that.
