I know! Those "Jesus is my pilot" bumper stickers scare me! They seem awfully anxious to get to heaven! I try to stay out of their way!

It's because they can't afford good health care...

Nicotines physical addiction withdraws can be brutal. At work I started drinking double shot express-os (3 or 4 a day) so I didn't nod off at my desk. My mom when she quit a 40 year smoking habit cold turkey. She would experience nodding off while driving. But not all of that is from the physical withdrawals....... 

 

The activity part of smoking is in it self life changing. This might sound pathetic (and maybe it is) but it can give real purpose to what could other wise be a boring empty daily grind. Looking forward to something in a persons daily routine can be the very thing that keeps a person on the happy side of the line. The line between happy and sad can be razor thin indeed. 

 

 

Vaping replaces both of these parts. Patches and gum will help with the first part but they don't replace the activity.

 

IMHO the activity part in drugs and smoking is the main reason for failing to quit, or using again. Addicts are almost certain to use again if they don't replace the activity side. Addicts don't stay sober long living board and unhappy. Addicts have a chance if they care. They have none if they don't.

Yes, the gum or patch can't replace the willful self dosing the way vaping or smoking does, although when I was using Nicorette Gum to wean myself off nicotine I leaned how to chew up the gum really much and soft and then I'd plaster it under my tongue and squeeze it to get a 'hit' of nicotine from what was supposed to be a slowly chew to release the nicotine SLOWLY!!!

I LEARNED!!

There is something to the activity part. 

 

To prove it next time you want a cigarette just hold it as if it was lit, but don't lite it and ignore it, go about your business. It somewhat tricks your brain about the activity part, but eventually the need for nicotine will get you to light it.

Just started vaping a few weeks ago. Picked up one of the new pod systems for $20.00. Very small, about the size of a couple smokes bundled together. Charges up with a micro USB. They sell packs of two profiled pods that have been lasting me a week. Nice little rig called Logic, from Britain. Just introduced into the Canadian market this spring. I see it as my gateway to quitting. Two or three little puffs and I’m good to go whereas before I would smoke a whole cigarette. Harmless? I doubt it, far less harmful? Absolutely. The amount of. money bleeding out has dropped drastically. $21 a day for one pack vs $10 a week for a two pack of pods.

Look at all those engineered parts on this vapor.   What a steam pipe.

Really sucks when the good ones go. Jim Morrison or Keith Whitley two others that just hit there prime then died.  
Jim had a death wish.
