I am not a doctor but from what you have written it seems to me you have what is termed an addictive personality and abuse a variety of drugs as a consequence. I know you have reasons for thinking otherwise but these sound a lot like weak justifications! Self medicating with cigarettes for ‘the antidepressant effect of heavy nicotine consumption’???? You represent yourself here as either a person with an unusual mental condition in need of unconventional self medication or a ‘half-insane hippie’ into occasional recreational drug use. OK, but it is more to the point to say you have an addictive personality and it is your sickness talking, making elaborate justifications. Unless you recognize that you have a problem and are just as vulnerable to addictive tendencies and self abuse as the person using drugs on the street, you will not be able to find and stick to long term solutions to keep you on an even keel. Look I’ve had my fair share of drug abuse and used to smoke cigarettes. I’m so glad I put that behind me. It wasn’t until I was able to put some time and space between them that I was able to recognize how much they contributed to my mood and energy fluctuations.
I wish the best of health to you.
