Smokers with anxiety since fire retardant added???

Posted , 1 user is following.

So my random feelings of falling down, fatigue, and anxiety started 6 years ago when they added the FSC chemical (fire retardant) to cigarettes!!!! I never thought about it till today! So just wondering if any of you guys on this forum have smoking and anxiety in common??

    I dont think that has anything to do with this disorder. Only smokers would have  it otherwise. If you feel theres a new added danger to smoking maybe you can try and figure out how to cut down or quit. Very very difficult to do. But no i dont think that has anything to do with the disorder.

    I dunno what caused mine honestly my first real bout with it before I knew what it was I quit for 2weeks and the anxiety still came back much worse. I fee like a lot of anxiety is just an overload on your brain atleast in case, I had a full schedule and kept cramming things on, things that I didn't really want to and felt like I had to do and things that made me nervous and feel like I was always being judged. These feeling and full schedule kept me on high alert and my brain running 100mphs all the time with no real settle time and I think I broke myself down to feeling so bad that my mind just broke under the pressure, I still feel crappy but atleast I'm about 80% but I don't honestly feel like my smoking had much to do with it except give me something to have health anxiety about

    I remember reading some posts about people who started developing anxiety and other symptoms after smoking some weed. Maybe the tobacco they used with it contained that chemical and triggered a reaction similar to yours.
