I recently decided I HAD to quit smoking. I can’t afford it anymore and there’s obviously nothing good about it. I’m literally paying to sit in a smoke haze and give myself a disease. So stupid! The thought of not having something to light and inhale though gave me anxiety. What would I now do with my morning coffee or when I was bored? I really just want the nicotine out of my system but still wanted something to smoke. Why can’t they invent something that isn’t dangerous or addictive but gives the same sensation as smoking? Nicotine and tobacco free Ciggies, of course! So I purchased 4 different flavours to try. The first 2 days I’d light a herbal as often as I would a normal cig. I thought I’d found the answer to giving up! I couldn’t believe how it felt just like smoking normally. I convinced myself I’d do this for a month until the nicotine was out of my body then I wouldn’t need the herbals. I thought I’d try a normal cig to see if I could tell the difference and it tasted disgusting! I put it out after 2-3 puffs. A few hours later I tried a herbal one and it just tasted so disgusting too, like burning wood, I couldn’t continue to inhale this thing. Today is day 4 and every time I think about having a cigarette I remind myself if that revolting smell and taste and just can’t stomach the idea of smoking now. I’m extremely happy that I’m so turned off but equally nervous that this shall pass and I’ll be back to craving a smoke.
Is it common to feel completely turned off smoking after a few days? Has anyone successfully given up after trying herbal Ciggies?
