You guys think smoking is worsening anxiety or it's just a habit to think it's not good and when i light it up instantly get an attack but if i quit i will worry that i will be more anxious if i don't smoke and quitting is hard so maybe i will be more stressed? Idk anxiety is tricking our mind of course cigarettes r not healthy.. just worried about everything.

Try exercising often. Make it a habit or hobby. I've never smoked, but hopefully exercising is something you could do to distract yourself from smoking.

Nicotine is part of the deadly nightshade family of plants, it is a poison. It stimulates you, you will feel more anxious but less depressed each time you smoke a cigarette, it is also a cardiac constrictor which means every time you smoke a cigarette you vains constrict and your heart has to work harder to pump blood around your body. Everytime you smoke a cigarette you use up 25mg of vitamin C.

I learnt all this because I stopped smoking after 27 years of doing it, been quit 7.
