Just curious as to why people say to avoid caffeine when quitting smoking?
I know why we should avoid alcohol.
Hey reader2019, the stimulant in caffeine triggers severe triggers for nicotine if you are/were a smoker. Also even if you never smoked can bring on nasty anxiety attacks.
Hi thanks for your info. Is this because a lot of smokers smoke while they have coffee. I had been an outside smoker for 25 years and never had my coffee outside while I smoked. I still have my coffee in the morning. But now I am wondering if it will be something I will have to watch for once I am done the champix. May time to switch to decaf.
For me anyway I stopped coffee completely when I stopped smoking, only would have 1 cup a day first thing in the morning but that one cup brought on severe cravings and anxiety.....
Oddly enough, I was fine with alcohol 😯
I didn't avoid it when I quit, I did avoid alcohol though for 2 years but never coffee
Smoking dulls the effect of caffeine. So it can make you quite shaky and anxious and interfere with sleep.
When you have caffeine after quitting...
Don't know about you guys, but half my need for NRT is down to other people!! Somehow they always appear...
