I have a friend who has ADHD and is a smoker. She says that she knows smoking is bad but smoking is a way of self medicating for her. Because it helps her pay attention and stops her from fidgeting for a little bit. Is that possible, that smoking helps with some symptoms of adhd?
Yes, nicotine does do that for some people. Self-medication isn’t always the most healthy way to deal with ADHD, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.
