wacky tobacky

I started smoking cigarettes in high school socially. Then in my freshman year of college, I started smoking habitually. By my sophomore year, I decided that smoking just wasn't a good thing, so I wanted to quit. I tried to quit cold turkey and failed miserably. At this point, my roommate said, "hey, everytime you want a cigarette, just take a small dip..." Suffice it to say, I got addicted to chewing tobacco but quit smoking. When I finally realized that dipping is one of the nastiest habits ever, I tried to quit that, only to begin smoking again. Well, I decided to quit again, and went to nicorette. That was shite; I would stuff 3 or 4 pieces in my mouth and that was just too expensive. Then I moved to dipping pouches, still nasty, decided to quit. Then I started smoking again.

But all that has stopped... I found this product called "Stonewall." It's these little "Hard Snuff Pieces" that dissolve in your mouth, no spitting required, and apparently it's a bit healthier than dip and obviously a lot healthier than cigarettes. In addition, one piece has about half the nicotine of an average pinch of moist snuff. Now, whenever I have cravings, I just throw one of those in my mouth and voila: craving satisfied.

The cool thing is, now, I'm down to about one of these things a day, just at night when I come home and think, "geez it would be nice to have a cigarette right now."

I think that I'll probably, by the end of the month, be done with these things too. But the point is, I've kicked dipping and cigarette smoking and lessened my nicotine intake 10-fold.

I think that if you are trying to quit, but don't really want to quit, then these little Stonewall hard snuff things are the way to go. They're cheap, about 3.00 for a pack of 20, and have shown great progress on the road to freeing myself of a nicotine addiction.

Maybe the patches and whatnot are better and quicker, but I've done it all on my own here with these things. Cravings come less often (maybe because I've adjusted to receiving less nicotine) and I feel confident that weening myself off is very possible.

Anywho, I think you guys should trying if you're still smoking and/or dipping. It isn't perfectly safe, and there are still warnings, but dammit I'm close!

Plus, a mouth tumor is way easier to cut out than a lung tumor.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: wacky tobacky



It's having your throat/tongue/voicebox rot out that's a bitch.

Get there doct0r...I know it's a real hard one to break watching friends, but it's one of the best things you can do for yourself.

Re: wacky tobacky

I quit smoking cold turkey several years back. Look to have serious cravings in the future, possibly near futuer. Don't give in though. Stick it out and you will be on a good road.

I can't even stand the smell of a cigarette now. It took a while though. I was real bad about sitting in the smoking section of a restaraunt in order to just be around the smoke. I was really doing myself more harm than good though.
