Are the patches effective? I'd like to help with withdrawls as much as I can because I work damn near every day. Dont want to be shit at work.

I'd start with the pouches that have nicotine, but not tobacco, then eventually you can buy pouches that have neither.

Nicotine lozenges.

You park them in the side of your mouth just like dip, you just don't spit.

Figure out how many you need a day and then use that amount (4 mg of nicotine in each one, you can also break them in half).

If you want to quit over say two months start with 8 a day (32 mg of nicotine a day) and reduce by 1 lozenger each week.

If you want to quit over say one month start with 8 and reduce by two each week.

Figure out how much nicotine you are taking in a day and then start on the lozenge at like 75% or 70% as much to start your taper.

All nicotine withdraw symptoms will be reduced YET last longer because you will feel some nicotine withdraw just reducing by 25% or 50% (depends on the person.

I quit cigs with lozenges and went from 10 loz to 0 in like ten weeks.

It works great for people that don't like the intense anger and craving cold turkey can create.

Cold turkey. 

 

By the end of a week you'll be fine.

 

In the meantime, suck a lot of dicks.

Count the money.

I hope this doesn't sound unhelpful but as others have said, I liked cold turkey. It's a rough ride but it's the shortest path. Strap yourself in and bite down. It will definitely suck for a few days but after about 3 days it should start to get better. I was a very addicted smoker and I haven't had one in 16 years. I don't miss it at all.

This.


I went from cigarettes to SNUS. Then I got a scare from the SNUS.


I went to nicotine lozenges, the little mini ones. It was a pretty seamless switch.


I ended up using them for years though.


I had a cancer scare, and I discussed it with a cancer specialist at Sloan Kettering, and apparantly, you can just suck on those things forever with no real issues.

I'm not going to kiss you again until you stop dipping.

Hypnosis. Posthypnotic suggestion that every time you put dip in your mouth, it tastes like burning rubber. You'll have to go back every two months to get the suggestion reinforced. After about six months, you'll have weaned yourself off of it.

I don't know about dipping, but I helped my ex stop smoking by doing it in "halves". First, she used the patch to help curb nicotene cravings. During this time, she broke the habit of smoking - always having one in the AM, after a meal, as soon as she got in the car, etc. That was actually harder to beat than the cravings were.

Once she'd beaten the habit, the patches were rather easy to wean off.

Takes a little longer (think it took her like 3 weeks?), but she said it was the easiest time she'd ever had quitting smoking when other things had never worked.

Get your manly pride involved. Withdrawals are a form of pain. Bite down and don't be a pussy. It fucking sucked when I did it, but I did it. Can you do it?

Yeah... the habit portion of many 'addictions' can be more powerful than the addiction itself.

Read 'The Power of Habit' by Charles Duhigg.

Some interesting content in that book. Its interesting that something like going and getting a sugary drink of shitty snack every day at work may actually not be about the food at all but more so the 5 minutes of chatting with coworkers that also took place. So someone was able to completely remove the bad part of the habit by just building in that same type of social time.

Interesting how the mind works.
