I have tried all manner of methods to quit smoking. Gum, Patch, Chantix, some other anti-depressant whose name I just can't remember at the moment.... cold turkey.... Some did nothing for me at all, others... the side effects were FAR more disabling the smoking. (truly interesting nightmares being right up there on the list.....) I still smoke. I think the only method of quitting I haven't tried yet, is hypnosis.....
Went that route years ago and went a few days without smoking. Then had to light up.
Returned to the hypnotist and she told me what she did is more for "social smokers"...
those that do it to be doing something. She asked me some questions and determed
I was addicted to the nicotine ( get a very mild rush with each drag ) and hypnosis
would not help me.
I now vape to get the rush. My nicotine level is 6, whereas most liquids are at 18.
So I get a very low dose. Also have a shop do a custom blend for me and the
cost of my habit now runs me about 35 $ a month. When I did cigarettes I was
spending about 250 $ a month. Amazing all the stupid things I could afford to
buy after the switch....
