After trying to quit smoking … using every tip and trick on the face of the Earth …… I finally just got PISSED OFF and quit cold turkey!
Was it hard? …… HELL YES! If it were easy … everyone would quit smoking!
So here’s some advise …
First of all … you need to know IT’S HARD TO QUIT! Nicotine is an addictive drug. Research suggests that nicotine is as addictive as heroin, cocaine, and alcohol!
Here are some tips I tried before going Cold Turkey ….
** wrapping individual cigarettes in plastic wrap and putting them in the freezer **
The thought here is… if it’s harder to get to the cigarette … you just won’t want it. ~ Well… that’s bullshit! All you have to do is go to the freezer and unwrap it. And why the freezer? Who knows. I was desperate ok.
** deliberately “forget” your cigarettes when you are going someplace quick **
The thought here is …. if you don’t have ’em, you won’t smoke ’em. ~ Well … they forgot to mention that there’s a drive thru, smoke shop, gas station on every corner. Nuff said about that.
** sip cold water **
The thought here is … it can replace the act of sucking on a cigarette. ~ Um… no it doesn’t! Suck on this (finger pointing “down there”) is what I think of that tip.
Anyway … for all of you out there trying to quit smoking … I truly wish I had a magic pill! I would gladly give it to you in a heart beat!
The best advice I can you is …
Don’t beat yourself up …. Don’t give up on yourself …. Just get pissed off and quit!
