I've been interested in using nicotine lately, anything else to say about it?
Yes. I think it's great, but a lot of the times at work it's not very practical for me, all the bullshit of not smoking in closed spaces and whatnot. Cigarettes are much better then nicotine patches, much better, but short term you can perceive the affects of nicotine patches, long term it wears out. I did pipes in the past, but for me it was too much work. I'm thinking of vaping as opposed to patches, but the liquids are expensive were I'm at.>l-theanine
How do you take it with coffee? Do you open the capsule and mix or swallow the capsule with coffee?
hi. i've been using nrts (patches, gums and mouth spray) for 4 years - got a bad cold and decided to quit smoking. i've read about nootropics and nrts and what it basically said nrts can improve your short term memory and muscle memory. my experience so far: patches - they seem to rash the skin if kept more than 12 hours, you get really vivid dreams and somewhat make you feel bloated, other than that it does nothing; gums - you need to unlearn chewing, as in you chew for 1 minute, then "park" the gum for 1 minute and so on for 15 minutes, it's interesting if you practice mindfulness, the buzz is not that great, plus the gum itself tastes chemicaly sweet then bitter bc of the nicotine inside, also be prepared to pass gas a lot; mouth spray - oh boy, this will make you addicted, it's like this - want to feel sedated? take 2 puffs under your tongue and keep it for like 10 minutes, want to focus? take 1 puff under your tongue and keep it for like 5 minutes every 30 minutes, but the trick is not to take more than 2 mg an hour, it can poison you and the effects are, racing hearthbeat, shaking, vomiting, loss of balance, sharp headaches, blurred vision - more like a bad anxiety. For more focus you could take Himalaya Mentat Tablets, 2 a day, but you'll feel the effects after a month or so. Overall, I don't recomend nrts as nootropics. But then nicotine, caffeine and alcohol are shit drugs anyway.
Those taste like absolute shit.
I'm a slave to nicotine and it is a harsh master. I don't know whether it is because I have both OCD and ADHD, but whenever I'm back to smoking everyday, my thoughts become sticky, and anxiety feels like sharp pain. It has positives: i'm more confident in social situations, have more focus and energy to do something.
Have been smoking for two years. I'd suggest staying away from it if you can. At some point you are going to be tired of it and you'll decide to quit, quitting it is a motherfucking hell of a time. For two weeks now since i stopped smoking I've been feeling like I have half a brain. Tiredness, lack of attention, insane desire to consume food. It is unpleasant.
still, if you want it, go for vape rather than traditional smokes. Vape is smoother in it's effect on you, has a variety of tastes and you won't reek of tobacco all day long.
