prolly the only one to say nay, but how about decreasing the confidence gain? that way you could still smoke and gain the confidence, just not at the current rate of growth? still keep the con decrease though....that way it is REALLY bad for you
:P You couldn't have waited until I finished Degree 17 in this dimit? I can't eat or drink when I'm full of trades, I can't spend lots of $ to have trades because interest degree coming up, and I can't remember any other way to gain confidence. smoking is all i know ;)
(I did get there in the end, so this is merely whining and not a problem with the game balance or anything).
How about this for a confidence boost... would it be possible to have yellow pills if taken by themselves add 1-5 confidence. I don't see them used for much of anything else (other then making of other pills and a golden apple). Just a thought.
