It's not just people with a schizophrenia diagnosis - it's generally a lot of people with some kind of psychological/emotional suffering - & i'd think it primarily has to do with improving the way someone feels, as all substance use is.

i smoke an additive free natural tobacco, in roll ups.

I am a person with a schizophrenia diagnosis, but I don't smoke although I did about 20 years ago before my current diagnosis.
