However to SWIMS shock he tried smoking cigerettes "Marlbrough light(sp)" and felt quite chilled after the first one but on the second it made him feel very low and quite nausious and sick. Is this normal for the effects of nicotine? Can one smoke himself enough to vomit?
I saw nicotine as quite a harmless drug from short term effects, the last thing i was expecting was sickness.
(just for the few out there who are gonna say that no drug is harmless and blah blah, i know that but i saw nicotine as one of the less dangerous. I do understand that smoking causes cancer and im aware of the risks)
O ya, this is normal. Someone who has never smoked a cigarette can get very light headed, weak in the knees or even dizzy. One could easily smoke until they vomit. Of course tolerance to nicotine builds quickly, as does the addiction.
Don't worry dude, every smoker starts out that way. One cant expect smoking cannabis to be the same as smoking nicotine. It two different drugs.
Its pretty normal actually to feel like that. My first drag felt pretty damn heavy on my head too and it made me slightly weak in the knees. Worse of all, my first drag was with a girl who introduced me to smoking and looking back on it now, I really looked like a wimp. But she reassured me everyone starts out that way so no worries man.
The heavyness in your head is known as a smokers high. It wont last forever and will eventually disappear when your tolerance builds up to the nicotine and you continue only to maintain and sustain your nicotine cravings.
Just keep a daily quota of say, maybe 2-3 sticks a day and then up it 1-2 every week.
I felt that way too. First I didn't know that you have to pull the smoke to youre lungs, but I was quite young then. Later when I learned that, I felt nauseous after a smoke. Tolerance build indeed, but addiction, it seems to me, isn't very easy to get.
It seems that the cytochrome P4502A6 enzyme desides wheter you're gonna get addicted after few smokes or it takes months of smoking. The fast form of the enzyme makes nicotine to convert faster to cotinine and thus brain doesn't have so long nicotine bath. On the other hand, the lazy form of the gene makes brain to dispose for the nicotine for a lot longer times, thus generating more dopamine and addiction.
I just went outside to smoke a cigarette. 3rd one tonight.
*inhale: COUGH. COUGH.*
started feeling sick to my stomach
threw up several times
popped some vicodin to alleve headache
terrible taste of smoke in a coke-like drip in my throat
starting to get better 20 min. later after much water
WHAT THE FUCK was in the cigarette?
anyone have anything like that happen?
How long have you been smoking cigarettes?
Sounds like too much nicotine to me. If you are a regular smoker, though... I have no idea. Very strange. Listen to your body, though. I know it doesn't like those ciggies! I wish I could quit.. Very tough.
Weird. Did you buy the cigs yourself?
Once in a while I'll feel a bit sick or get a headache, which I believe to be caused by cigs sometimes... but nothing like you described.
Maybe your body is just getting fed up with them?
Aw man that's some nasty shit, same thing happened to me on a few occasions. I'll tell you what though, "WHAT THE FUCK was in that cigarette?", some of the dirtiest nastiest filthiest rotten shit to ever be willingly put in the human body, 'twas tobacco of course. A poisonous and deadly substance known to contain over 4000 chemicals, 200 of which are highly carcinogenic.
Quit while your ahead!!! My lungs are feeling so much better and I have only quit for a week and a half! I heard that food starts to taste better eventually.. I am afraid of that, I really like to eat as it is.
Your dizzy spell is probably a combination of nicotine hitting the brain, and carbon monoxide cutting off the O2 to your brain, basically, the effects of every cig.
Thats a verty strange expereince, but one small peice of advice, if your nauseous vicodin is probably not a good idea. A side effect of opiates is nausea, so while it may help your headache it may make u more queezy and nauseous. D Ive gotten a sick feelin very rarely from smoking a cigarette, but it was usually when I had used another drug before I smoked the cigarette. I never have had reaction to a cigarette by itself. There are many harmfull chemicals in tobacco and on top of that the cig. companies add all sorts of other chemicals and additives, so it could have been a bad batch perhaps?? Personally I stick to additive free cigarettes, they are more expensive but usually use a higher quality tobacco and I figure if I have the choice i would rather smoke a cig that has no additives then one that had additives, it just seems like the lesser of two evils to me.
It could also be that you were just getting sick and the cigarette just exagerated your symptoms?
happened to me along time ago after binging on them. i puked fucking guts out and had a nastyy headache, completely turned me off to them. now I smoke cigarillos becuase they're cheap and a better buzz than cigs.
ive been smoking on and off for a while but the last time i smoked before work i got extremely lightheaded and felt weak and nausious, also i lost feeling in my hands, they became hard to move and i tried to make guitar chord shapes which didnt work , after i tried to vomit a few times and failed, i started feeling better and slowly started to stop sweating and then i felt competely fine, i thibnk this expirce has turned me off to cigs for good, they really are nasty but i just like doing any kind of drug that chills me out, and its great i could do it in public , but now im pretty sure im done with them
