What are the side effects of smoking weed and cigarettes but taking a break from weed and start to smoke cigarettes more?

What are the side effects of smoking weed and cigarettes but taking a break from weed and start to smoke cigarettes more?

Respiratory/heart: Neither is good to use, so taking "a break" from both would have the side effect of better health.

Try other OTC sleep aids--Valerian Root, Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) herbal teas, etc.

Hypnotherapy: Hypnotherapy can break tobacco habits. It can make the use of the tobacco product aversive - even disgusting. That can cause social problems if those near you smoke, but it can work without that extreme an effect too. Here's a hint: the breathing pattern of smokers is actually good to continue - without the cigarette. It is good for you and stopping that is part for what makes it feel so bad. Best. ...Read more
