    Smoking in rehab

    Fri Nov 29, 2019 7:20 pm

    I’m going to detox/rehab in 2 weeks for alcohol. I quit smoking cigarettes about 15 years ago until late last year. Now I smoke like I never quit. The rehab says if I want to quit smoking at the same time as booze they’ll give me patches. I do want to quit again but is it too much to do so at the same time as alcohol? I don’t want to jeapordisegetting sober because that’s what’s screwed up my life and my health bit i don’t know. Is it better to do all the stiffening at once or to spread it out. Any ideas?

    My thoughts are that, whatever you decide to do, it's important to keep it manageable for you. I can't tell you how much you can fit on your plate, but make sure you don't bite off more than you can chew! Just keep heading in the right direction at a reasonable and comfortable pace, whatever that may look like for you.
