Ok. So I read an article that said that preliminary data showed that smokers across all demographics were much less susceptible to Covid-19. Even though once they do contract it they are more grave because their lungs are compromised from the smoking.
They suggested that perhaps the nicotine would be the reason for this transmission gap though. So I went out and bought some nicotine gum. I opted for the smallest dosage and took half. The gum itself is not that great. It leaves a bit of a stinging sensation in your mouth and throat. However, I did notice that there was a bit of pressure relief in my right lung area.
I also noted that my oxygen saturation levels went up. I went from a 97-98 back up to a 99. My levels have been a tiny bit short; before this whole pandemic I was usually a 99-100% range. I took that dose 2 days ago and I think I will take another one tomorrow morning. The nicotine makes me an ever so tiny bit amped for about an hour, but no other side effects that I can tell.
So that’s it. It isn’t a scientific study, but being that I don’t see how it could hurt me, and at such low doses I don’t see a long term impact or addiction starting, I’m going to keep using it.
The oxygen supplementation with H2O2 was good but not enough. So now I feel truly on track to take care of myself better during this strange time in our history. I could be wrong of course, but there is also something to be said for the placebo effect. 🤷🏽♀️
Take good care of yourselves, but don’t get caught up in all the worry and fear. Keep trying to enjoy your life the most you can. Make the best of it, no matter what it is…. or not I guess. The choice is yours. 😉
