I’m freaking out, man.
Any tips on writing someone in a semi-apocalyptic setting, who is trying to get over smoking?
Also, besides the nicotine withdrawal, some people who quit smoking discover that they also have an oral fixation, which is a general habit of sticking things in your mouth. Sometimes this can lead to bad habits, like biting one’s fingernails. Other people cope by chewing gum or ice, gnawing on pencils or pens, keeping a toothpick handy, or eating suckers.
A semi-apocalyptic setting is likely going to make it hard for your character to find anti-smoking aids, such as nicotine gum or patches, due to everything being scarce. Plan accordingly. If this means your character’s gonna quit cold turkey, then they’re going to experience some severe withdrawal symptoms, especially if they were heavy smokers.
Another way you could take it is by having your character simply shift the source of the nicotine to whatever’s available. They could switch from cigarettes to snuff, or chewing tobacco, or perhaps even e-cigarettes if your setting will allow for it. If your character is the type who looks for a loophole as opposed to terminating the addiction, that could serve as an interesting bit of characterization.
Hope that helps a little.
