  • i THINK It depends on the level of addition you have towards each or anything you are addicted to. I am 1 year free from smoking (cigarettes that is ) and it was terribly hard for me because I used it also as a social crutch and emotional crutch so it was not only a physical addiction.. so I am sure it goes the same way with alcohol.

  • I think they are both addictive horrible habits, and wanting to quit either one is what is important.

  • Smoking- you can smoke all day long without passing out or becoming impaired.

    Drinking alcohol first thing in the morning? Before you enter the workplace? In your car?

  • I don't smoke. I did drink, but when my husband started going to AAA I stopped drinking too. I don't miss it

  • I don't have a problem with alcohol, but I can tell you from my own experience that it is VERY hard to quit smoking, especially if you've smoked any length of time.
