First off, I don't want this thread devolving into a pro- vs anti-smoking debate. Anyone who feels the need to rant about smokers - for or against - can do so elsewhere. The question, for those preparing for some form of SHTF - be it fairly short term like a natural disaster or long term - who are also smokers: What plans do you have in place for when supplies of tobacco/cigarettes are reduced or cut off? I know from my own experience how even everyday stuff becomes even more frustrating if I've run out of smokes and am unable to get more. I can only imagine what a survival situation would be like compounded by growing nicotine withdrawal. Survival situations are stressful and can play havoc on your demeanour. Nicotine withdrawal makes me as ratty as hell and increases stress levels. Sure, in an ideal universe we would all have given up smoking long before any SHTF situation - but, as the good people of Christchurch, NZ can tell you, you never know when crap's gonna happen. What preparations are you smokers making? Do you have different levels of preparation depending on whether it's short or long term, hunker down or bug out etc?
