I am a relatively new smoker. I have been smoking for about 3 months now. I started off pretty strong. For a couple weeks I was in the habit of smoking everyday but eventually I cut it down to 2-3 times a week. (On the weekends) Ever since I started smoking I have been having slight spells of confusion. It would start off when I would smoke, and then that night I would wake up because I couldn't figure out where I was or what I was even doing. I thought it was normal and just due to smoking that day.
However, these spells are starting to happen more frequently. (Even if I have not smoked) It usually occurs during the middle of the night where I am jolted awake because I simply cant remember anything. I have to think pretty hard for a good minute before I can figure out what I'm doing and where I am. I also have this sort of confusion in the morning as well. Most of the time when my alarm goes off I cant understand why I set it, why it's going off, and why I had to wake up early. I also have found that I can't keep track of the days of the week. Today I couldn't remember it was tuesday, and yesterday I couldn't remember it was monday without asking someone.
These feelings of confusion leave me feeling pretty uneasy and sometimes even frightened because for a minute I can't remember anything. Has anyone else had this experience? Do you think it is directly connected with smoking?
