When I told myself that cigarettes were not friends it was easier to turn my back on them. Tip was given to me by Quitline person. I would get stressed then the internal dialogue was.

I think drinking more water helps by flushing out the toxins and keeps me busy enough,by extra trips to the bathroom thatby the timeI do all that I dont have the urge to go outside and have a smoke
I came across some herbal remedies and was curious if anyone has ever tried any? I was hoping to find something like Champix that helped block the dopamine sensors, and took the enjoyment out of smoking for the 3 days cold turkey, but only after successfully altering the psychological and behavioral habits (90%) first.
