      Anyone got any improvement by quitting smoking. It seems to be the only thing holding me together at the moment, but want to quit, but don't want it to spike and start again ...

      I would also like to know the answer to this. I know smokings bad and all and I should quit anyways blah blah... but if there was a potential decrease in the sound it would certainly motivate me to try

      Quitting smoking has had no effect on the pitch/volume/cycle of my T. The only benefit I notice of not smoking as it relates to T is a slight improvement at handling the stress caused by T.

      @J.Hartog Hello. A few articles note that cigarette smoking causes chemical deduction with benzos. All the articles are a hard pharm read. Most state a 50% deduction of benzo affect. The only good thing about this may be an easier withdrawal (side effects) when that time comes.

      Well I am in the midst of benzo withdrawal atm and I am going through hell. But that's mostly due to worst tinnitus. If I didn't have this I would say I have a fairly easy taper but the increase in T is sending me straight back to the early days of T. I feel hopeless. Constantly monitoring and isolating myself. There could be some truth to the study though because what I read sometimes what other people experience in taper I am lucky I am fully functional and even working out etc. But the increase in T :( :( :( I am so afraid that it wont go back to baseline.

      Quitting smoking is always a good idea, no matter the circumstances.

      Will this help with the increase in T? Because that's the main problem. If it doesn't I really don't want to start with any sups while tapering. I can handle the other symptoms :)

      @J.Hartog Everyone is different. B12 and C just a very slight bit and temporary. These two vitamins worked a little better when I first started taking them. Half a Zinc tablet will sometimes give me a temporary 10% deduction for a few hours.
