I have a new doctor I've been seeing for only a few month. Like most doctors, she's concerned about her patients overall health. One of her big kicks is trying to get me to stop smoking. Now I don't smoke that much, usually less than half a pack a day, unless I'm going through a particularly stressful period. I've told her this. I've also told her that if I were to stop smoking I would gain weight and right now this is something I just cannot do.
My doctor continues the discussion briefly at each visit. My last visit she asked why I smoke, what do I get out of it. My reply was, obviously you've never been a smoker. She told me I was right, but that her husband is a heavy smoker and she's always trying to get him to quit. I told her what I get out of it is stress reduction. My doctor says she eats when she's stressed. SEE!
