Well obviously it's up to  you, but if you haven't smoked in a month or so, why start again? You could possibly heal a bit quicker, generally speaking, smoking isn't goo for healing. Don't know about benzo WD obviously.

But if you want to smoke, and think it will help in some way, smoke i suppose. I definitely couldn't have stopped until recently, even now, I have a few good days and don't. But as soon as the anxiety kicks in, I'm off to the shop.

I'll keep trying though. Some days it's easy, I just think of the craving as an intrusive thought. i've had plenty of practice with them :)

Keep trying, but I think it is mistake to go through another torment and pain in withdrawal.

I'd never start again if you already managed to quit. I tried to quit smoking for many years. I tried everything, from nicotine gums from Canadian pharmacy to scary videos. Nothing worked for me until I finally understood that it's a mental issue and it's totally up to me to stop the addiction.

I smoke myself. Been off klonopin 10 years.

I wouldn't be so fast to say nicotine wd is easy peasy: I tried once and got to day 2 with brain zaps and excessive sleeping and just feeling unfocused.

It's not as easy for some as others, just like anything else. Nicotine is a chemical addiction.

You could try nicotine gum, as you can buy it from Amazon very cheap.

Smoking isn't easy for me to stop.
I didn't smoke much during wd that I can recall. I did afterwards, unfortunately. 

Best of luck to you.

I have to agree.

I would personally wait until after, but each to their own. 😃 😊

I only smoke a few cigs a day and not all at once.  I keep them in the backroom and only smoke in the back in my one chair.  I don't smoke anywhere else in my home.

I decided to stop today. Until about an hour ago. I just cannot take on additional symptoms. Iíve given up ALL pleasures-a glass or 2 of red wine, my beloved coffee, CHOCOLATE-mac and cheese-the list is long. I mean, seriously. I am still a human being with needs and desires outside of this complete catastrophe. 🤨
