I quit smoking

If I have one cigarette while I'm in the process of quitting? how badly will the withdrawal symptoms be afterwards?

I quit smoking approximately 4 days ago and the worst of the withdrawal symptoms are gone. They honestly weren't bad at all after the first night. I'm supposed to go out tonight for a friend's birthday and I know people will be smoking and drinking, and so long as I'm drinking I'm definitely going to want to smoke. I'm not against having one cigarette while I'm there as a social thing, I know for a fact that I can resist buying packs given my current withdrawal symptoms, but I just don't want the withdrawal symptoms to come back in full swing like they did on the first night of quitting where I got coldsweats, insomnia, and a panic attack.

For some context, I bounced back and forth between smoking and vaping for two years, smoking about half a pack a day at my peak.

they definitely wont be as bad as the initial ones. half a pack for two years isnt that bad either tbh. odds are you will end up having more than one cigarette tho, am i right? i wouldnt worry as much about the withdrawal as so much as you are going to undo your progress

Withdrawal depends on tolerance and if you were good after 4 days then you can metabolize a lot of it easily in theory. Honestly the mental part will be harder than the physical withdrawal unless you are sucking it down like a fag.

I'm not particularly worried about undoing the progress. I have the self-control not to buy another pack afterwards and I'm taking advantage of COVID to keep myself active enough to avoid cravings anyway. I'm just considering whether withdrawal I would get after would be worth it or whether I should just abstain from drinking entirely at the party to avoid any temptation and later withdrawal. So long as I will be able to sleep without coldsweats the next night I'm not worried.

if you keep making excuses to have just one cigarette you’ll never quit. i was “quitting” this way for years before i finally went cold turkey. don’t smoke

The cravings for a cigarette just get further and further apart the longer you don't smoke.
Until eventually you don't crave them anymore.
It's like your brain thinks of it and forgets for a while.

You shouldn't need to know only 4 days in.
You aren't trying hard enough if you are gonna smoke already

yeah, you wont get it bad at all like that. you are probably just going to crave a cigarette more than usual. at least that is how it is for me. justt dont buy a pack. im shameless about bumming because i dont want 20 cigs, because like they say, if you got em, smoke em,

You won't just have one. You'll smoke the whole pack.

Withdrawal shouldn't be an issue, but you'll be exciting all of those nicotine receptors so your cravings will be pretty strong.

I "quit" smoking several years ago but I still make some exceptions every now and then. I have 3 cheat days in a year.

For starters I don't smoke American cigarettes on my cheat days because they're trash. If i'm gonna smoke they're gonna be Mexicans or Asians. That's some good ciggies right there.

But overall the fact that American ciggies taste so bad really helped me stop. You should try Mexican flavoree cigarettes and you'll never wanna smoke the Amercan garbage ever again.
