I am a non smoker that suffers from anxiety.
My gf smokes & i'm trying to get her to quit. She gets up at 7am for a cigarette & again an hour later & after meals.
When we're out socialising, she often nipps out for a ciggy & arrives back stinking!
I have noticed a lot lately that when she has smoked, & we kiss passionately, i can't stand the taste & i get anxious & can feel my heart rate soaring & feel nauseous & on edge, similarly like i would feel if i'd had a toke on her ciggy!
Can her smoking pass on a nicotine hit to me via kissing??
I know she only smokes outside & the passive smoking isn't as much of an issue, but just being in her company & kissing is realy getting to me!!
Any help appreciated
maybe it is, but i know what it feels like when a non smoker smokes, the cold sweat & nauseous & thats how i feel. I used to get the same in bars!
If there's smoke on her lips, tar, nicotine etc, then i'm sure it could be passed on when kissin, especially heavy kissing.
I'm a smoker and even I don't like kissing after having a cigarette. I agree it's pretty gross. I highly doubt it's toxic to kiss a smoker, however, like there's not enough of the bad stuff that could affect you when you're kissing.
My only suggestion is maybe just consider whether you want to be dating/kissing a smoker. I hate to say that, but it's just something you should probably think about. A lot of non-smokers are very adamant about only dating other non-smokers, it's very common. And if it really makes you uncomfortable then you probably aren't suited well for each other.
Hehe, she knows i thinks she smells like an ash tray, she knows herself. We have so much in common & i'm a pretty open person i try not to let something like that come between us or haven't in the past!
I guess we all have vices & nobodys perfect, she don't particularly like it when i need my fix of aerobic exercise everyday!
Thanks anyway, i just wondered about wether 'passive' smoking existed in kissing as it does when in the same room. After a ciggy or an hour after, i kinda hold my breath, but i can taste a kinda bitterness & then i get a headrush & a bit anxious.
