I have heard from many of the posts here that smoking helps them to relive their tensions.....I really wonder coz i had been a smoker once and there was nothing of that sort with me ??

could be just placebo. Thats what they heared and that's what they think it does. I can't realy tell I'm not a smoker.

Yeah i think that too... that it's like a placebo. I think that um... eating a candy bar can do the same thing if you really believe in it :D

U r right, but to be true it gives tension. If u wont smoke for an hour, u will get tension that u havent from a long time and that gets releived only once u have

When you're stressed, it's always good to breathe deaply, right? So my guess is the breaths it takes to smoke probably have something to do with it.

I guess it depends how addicted you are. If you have a very strong addiction, and a craving strikes, then I imagine tension would build up until you satisfy it.

no it doesnt.. what he said is right, after a while it kills u, and creates problem like cancers and stuff,, the chemotherapy maybe also one of the reasons that costs less tension!
