Does anyone get dizzy from smoking?

Last June I was diagnosed with COPD/emphysema. I was smoking 1 1/2 packs a day. I cut down immediately to 15, then to now 6. I don’t smoke them, just light up and take 4 puffs.

Experiencing dizziness from smoking
What I want to know is why I get sort of a feeling of being drunk when I take a couple of puffs. The feeling will last for about an hour. Has anyone experienced this? Or is it something to do with the COPD or emphysema?

  1. I don't believe that this has much to do with COPD or Emphysema but more that you are forcing something on your body that is simply doesn't want or need.
    I think this is good indicator that you are no longer addicted to nicotine as you once were. Perhaps using a straw or licorice would give you the satisfaction without the nicotine intake. Barbara Moore (site moderator)

    1. It is such a powerful drug, katy60. We are pulling for you, we know you can do it! Thanks for taking the time to reply tonight. ~Melanie ( team member)

    2. I agree that nicotine in one of the most powerful drugs and the sensation of smoking is definitely a very strong desire. Doctor's agree that giving up smoking is as hard as coming off of Heroin. I give you Kudos for getting this far, you are doing a great job. Feel free to reach out anytime.
