So is smoking coffee grinds bad for you? People in my family said they've done it because they were trying to quit smoking.

Also, if you were to grow you own tobacco would you get addicted since ain't nicotine what get's you addicted?

Sounds really childish but I'm seriously wondering.

Inhaling any kind of particulate matter is generally bad. Saw dust, sooty smoke, fiberglass dust, whatever.

But to what degree, I couldn't say.

Its more the habit of having the cigarette and inhaling the smoke which is addicting as opposed to the actual nicotine...that's why those nicotine patches are ineffective more a lot of people.

I heard a good method is to couple the nicotine patches with the "habit"...take something like a straw cut in half. Whenever you have the urge to smoke, or whenever you are supposed to apply the patch, add the straw and pretend it is a cigarette.

Solids aren't meant to be consumed through nasal passages and/or enter the alveoli in your lungs. So yes, it's bad.

i have never heard of smoking coffee grains before but i imagine it would give you a really short, really intense stimulant buzz.

as for if its bad for you or not, it depends on how often you smoke, and how long you have been smoking. contrary to popular belief, smoking can have benefits. the human lungs are covered in a layer of mucus that traps pollutants like dust and carcinogens...so if you smoke, you're lungs naturally heal themselves, but only to a certain extent, prolonged habitual smoking can and will have adverse effects on you lungs. on the other hand, if you were to smoke regularly for a year, then quit, approximately 6 months after you quit, your lungs would have healed completely and you would have a greater lung capacity than an average person.

yay for random information.
