Ok. Nothing worse than a reformed smoker! BUT I CANT HELP MYSELF! Here's my advice for you.
I tried quitting for years. In the end, I decided to 'quit quitting' as my New Years resolution. I succeeded much better at that for 5 years!
I LOVED smoking. Ha, I said it! That was my key really. That relief after that first draw in, the stress which blows away from you in a puff of
joyful smoke. Man, I loved smoking....
Then, (in Oz this is) something began to go wrong. My awesome smokes which I really enjoyed (roll yer own tobacco) started to keep going out. At
first, I scratched my noggin wondering what was going on, until I was filled in.
The tobacco companies now had to put in a "fire retardant" in my smokes... I mean, seriously, wtf! You could still smoke, but you really had to
keep powering through your smoke. Really suck at that bad-boy to keep it going. I tried all sorts of solutions, packing more in, less in, thinner
rolls, nothing worked! I used to love reallllly taking my time. It became a race, and that aggravated me. These companies surely would not want
your smokes to go out would they? Nope, cause they win both ways! You have to smoke faster, so you go through more smokes!
Screw them, I said.
Then I turned it on them... I quit then. And every time (like seriously every few minutes for the first week, less after) I felt the urge for a
smoke I built my anger up into a ball and I put that power into my middle finger and flexed out a big "Up-Yours" at the tobacco company for RUINING
my smokes! Profanities also helped!
I mean how dare they!
Sounds silly, but im now 11 weeks in and feel great! I maybe stick my finger up at the tobacco company now once a week! Straight after, the urge
just melts away.
Seriously has worked wonders for me. Cause all that 'I feel so happy' bull-dust is like sprinkling glitter on a dog turd. Put some rage they gave
you, right back at them.
Hope it helps you!
