There is one thing that patches, Champix and vaping don’t help with, what to do with stress, emotions and boredom.
I have consulted with 1100 smokers who wanted freedom from smoking. They had quit before yet started again. In nearly 100% of cases they were stressed by something like; marriage issues, workplace drama and health concerns.
* Not one of the 1100 people was craving nicotine! They were wanting to feel better.
When I was 16 years old my Dad passed away. After the funeral, I noticed people were smoking and having a few beers. I thought to myself, “Isn’t this the time to deal with my raw feelings, not smoke them out.”
In order to squash a dependence long term, a remedy for difficult feelings is useful.
