I got this idea from Les Stroud survivor man, he did this somewhere in South America.

I smoked till it made me sick

First you'll get light headed, feeling like slightly drunk.

Few more cigarets and you will start feeling like vomiting

Stop smoking at that point

You will feel sick for about an hour

You will never look at cigarets same way again, I guarantee it

You will not want to feel sick again

It feels pretty crappy to be nauseous for an hour, lying down doesn't help either,

That sounds what a sit com would do when the kid in it was found smoking.....
Because that is exactly what happens.

Hey, good for you.

I switched to vaporizing my nicotine about three years ago but I still have about two cigarettes a week.

One of the biggest regrets of my life was taking it up.

I might give this a shot.

I am so happy reading this...way to go!! You have motivated me even more as I have been holding boxes of gum and patches thinking to myself "this is so not going to work for me". Thank you! There were other tips from my local co-op about increasing my fruits to soak up the natural sugars (as our bodies will crave that during the detox time). This will be what I will start with and have the others as a fail safe. I hate smoking too...everything about it...and my addiction to the nicotine. Keep strong, maybe have an accountability buddy, and know that your body already at this moment is repairing itself from the damage you've done to it! :]
(just saw it has been a year for you...rock on)

Drop the mic! LOL man i didnt even think of using the old dad getting his son to quit smoking routine. That's awesome, and im glad it worked for you. I was a smoker for ten years, and quit on the 11th this month. Admittedly, im smoking a blu-cig right now, but its been 11 days without a real cigarette. Im gonna try this if I fail in my current venture.

approx how many cigs in did it take and how long?

True story.. ~
I found a playboy in my house in first grade.
I brought it to school and was busted.

as punishment, my stepfather locked me in a closet for hours with heaps of playboy issues with an expected endgame of me being "nauseous"..
dunno the validity for his reasoning because the opposite effect happened...

best hours of my prepubescent life

This worked for me and peanuts although the result was completely unintentional. I am not certain how this would beat the physical addiction to nicotine although it might make you not want the cigarette itself.

So smoke until you give yourself nicotine poisoning?

Yes, its a real thing.

You're full of crap. No one ever who smokes would say this is a way to quit. But way to be a liar and trying to get cheap sympathy. But you are a fake person so you get no stars or any positive comment from me

Once I was prescribed nicotine lollipops to help me quit. The thing with it is, you moderate your own dosage. One day I sucked on that thing like it was regular candy while I was playing guitar. Eventually I felt very ill, and I quit for a good six months. I started up again at a family funeral when lots of cousins were smoking and I wanted to fit in. Not sure how dangerous nicotine poisoning is, but it motivated me to quit at least temporarily. I wonder if it would have the same effect if induced intentionally? Actually, nah.

First time I was able to quit smoking was when I had a big surgery, however 4 months later I started smoking again with that YOLO mindset. Thinking at the time, why not enjoy what I enjoy?

Second time I quit, I would cut down by 1 cig every week. At that time I was only smoking 1 pack a day, 20 cigs. So that was my simple, hardly any effort, quit in 20 weeks plan, and it worked, for awhile anyways. I didn't smoke for a couple years, then started back up again.

The third and final time I quit smoking. I did it by not buying brand-name cigs anymore. I would buy the bags of it and push my own, so if I wanted to smoke, I had to work for it. That stuff would make you hack and cough up stuff every morning. After going through 2 bags of it, I couldn't take it anymore and flat out quit and now haven't smoked in 8 years.

So.... that's how I was able to stop. Didn't need no nicotine patches or gum or those smoking cessation classes.

So now our know-it-all Dr Welby will explain how superior he is to everyone else, in vanity and ignorance, anyway.
You blew that 'all you need to lose weight' rather badly!
Left alone in the dust!
So now you're at it again?
I'm dying to see how else you are superior to us all!
You must get rather lonely... *__-

Bye the bye, SocietyisRotten, how are YOU making the world/society a better place?
Your vain pseudo 'advice' isn't doing it.

This would fall into the catagory of "aversion therapy".

There's a place in Seattle, WA that does this with alcoholics, with a twist. They give you medication that makes you violently ill upon drinking. Then they have you drink and drink and drink, shot after shot, beer after beer. You spend HOURS puking your guts up and feeling like you are dying.

They seem to have mixed results when it comes to success rates.

In the end, if your mind still wants it but your body feels physically ill at the sight/smell of it...eventually your mind will overcome your body and you'll return to drinking.

You have to break the chains of addiction in your mind for it to become permanent. If you can say with 100% honesty, "I'm a non smoker" or "I'm a non drinker" and not feel any twinge of remorse, regret, or longing ... that's a very good sign on one's road to recovery.
