    yeah that does make alot of sense dude, i mean coffee and smoking was as good as it got for me, loved the two, but buying a good, coffee machine or something would be a great idea, my best friend has an amazing machine have to get one similar

    Yeah, find a new ritual. I've been detoxing over the past 4 days myself, and to stop myself from craving a pipe, I've been making cups of tea every half hour.

    Cold turkey has been the only way I've been able to quit. The problem is I've already quit three times using the cold turkey method. The last time I actually went to the store, got a pack, opened it and threw the whole pack in the trash. I said to myself "I quit, period!" I mentally got myself prepared by going to the store and buying them knowing I was going to throw them out. :D

    It worked for about 3 1/2 - 4 years and then I started again. :Spin:

    Now I need to quit again but it's way harder this time for some reason.

    I quit one and a half year ago after more than fifteen years of heavy smoking, cold turkey (well not exactly, I red Allen Carr's book) and not a single fuck was given ever since.

    Yeah, I'm too poor to smoke that hard. Besides, I'd like an Ibanez Destroyer instead of a pack these days. Course, I got the will power.

    Way to go nial. It's been a week and a half since my last smoke. I was a smoker for about 6 years or something, I noticed everyday how it made me feel weak (long walks / quick sprints anyone?). I was the typical habit guy, coffee and smoke always and a smoke after each meal, breakfast, lunch and dinner and some in between the day. One day I was feeling so weird physically I just took my almost full pack and gave it to a homeless guy and decided that was it.

    Now I do what Gareth does, cup of tea every half hour, I love tea so I've LOADS of different ones, different spices, etc, so I'm always mixing it up and it does help, I very rarely think about having a smoke.

    The first 4/5 days are the hardest, after that it's piss easy

    Also buy shitloads of root ginger, peel it and chop it up and throw it in a teapot + hot water and a bit of honey and drink that all the time. You'll be so relaxed and calm and still and happy that you won't care about smoking in the slightest.

    Speaking of herbals, does anyone have an opinion of clove cigarettes?

    it depends man, if its clove cigarettes with tobacco then yeah ive enjoyed them in the past but if its the honeyrose herbal clove cigarettes, then i wouldnt touch them, all of that honey rose shit is awful i really think it stinks, ive had about 18 in box in my room for a year and never touched them after the first two, even the last few days when i would have loved a smoke, i looked at them and thought, nooooo, then i threw them in the bin,

    to sum up, honeyrose herbal clove cigs = :puke:

    Mine hits harder than a Camel Wide, and I instantly never wanted another cig. That's been almost two years ago. It's funny, smokers try mine and hit it too hard and choke the first time. I used to have one of the puny one's though, and it really was worthless.

    To the OP, good luck on your journey!

    Good job :)

    Most probably the biochemical addiction is no longer active.

    Now it will only take some strength of will to not to start ever again.
