Carl Jung and Smoking

Letters of C. G. Jung: Volume 2, 1951-1961

To Ignaz Tauber

Dear Colleague, 23 January 1953

Thanks for your friendly visit!

I passed a good night.

One Quidinal was enough to stop the tachycardia.

Everything fine today, I am up again.

Yesterday I quite forgot to ask you what you think about smoking.

Until now I have smoked 1 pipe with water condensation on beginning work in the morning, a miniature cigar after lunch, equal to 1-2 cigarettes, another pipe at 4 o’clock, after supper another little cigar, and generally another pipe about 9:30.

A little tobacco helps me to concentrate and conduces to my peace of mind.

Please do send me your bill.

You were kind enough to bring the Corhomon along.

I’ve already had an injection today.

With many thanks for your advice,

Yours sincerely,

C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Page 103.
