I’ve smoked unfiltered Pall Mall for 14 years and two months. Before COVID I’d smoke 1/2 ppd. During COVID I’ve spiked to 2 ppd and sometimes smoke during video conference calls. Now my lungs need breathing room, but I can’t find a low-tar, low-nicotine cigarette that gives me rich tobacco flavor. Any suggestions?

Two packs of unfiltered cigarettes a day??? Daaang, that’s more hardcore than my grandpa at his peak, and he fought in WWII.

Jesus Christ. Pall Mall? You realize you’ve been smoking tobacco flavored chemical brown paper for probably 10 of those 14 years. Switch to American spirits or just hang it up.

Have you tried an interim step? Going from unfiltered Pall Malls to low low nicotine seems like a big leap. Maybe try a light version first? Smaller changes usually lead to more lasting long-term success. Honestly, I would consult a doctor. They can get you set up with medication management and help hold you accountable. No judgment, I smoked for a long time myself, but you’ve got yourself a pretty serious habit there. There’s been so much progress in terms of smoking cessation aids in the last decade. Take advantage of that. It’s OK to get a little help.

my bf & I lived in nyc but since covid happened he has moved out to a suburb to save money on rent and live with his parents for a few months. I quarantined out of nyc with family in the spring & early summer but came back to nyc to avoid doing long distance with my bf. He didn’t come into the city this past weekend to see me (I have spent some time out of the city last month with his family too) & to me that was a red flag that he’s really not making a huge effort to see me? Am I overthinking?

Anyone changing your family plan due to covid?

Pre-covid, I used to be able to manage and handle so many things at once. I know multitasking is frowned upon but life was like that growing up so I guess it all started as a bad routine. Now, I just feel like I've been in a 3 year rut and I'm just baffled at how productive/superbusy I was before. If my day was anything like that now, I know I can't handle it and my body will crash, hard. Anyone else the same? I do miss the pre-covid me though. Assertive, levelheaded, not lazy, not tired.
