Hello everybody! As i mentioned here and there, my girlfriend has quit tobacco but still smokes joints as much as she uses the MFLB. And i can tell she is having a harder time than i did, even though i wasn't successfull the first few tries, i eventually and with the help of a shiny buddha, managed to just vaporize. Thinking about her quitting saga has me wondering about the necessary steps for a successfull fuck on combustion. These are some of the things i did when i transitioned. Phase 1: - Stop smoking plain tobacco aka cigarettes (this is the main reason why you can't quit, nicotine!) - If you don't then start exercising daily (a 20min walk is better than nothing, believe me) - Don't stay up late (i always vape more in the evening and i always smoked more as well) - Don't go places where you usually smoke or drink (same reason as above) - If you are a coffee and cigarette kind of person, switch to tea for a while and only drink coffee without a smoke (coffee is addictive too and the smell alone makes me want to smoke, even now! I don't because i know it is just a suggestion, i would not enjoy it) - Get a good desktop vaporizer (DBV - HA) and/or a good portable (Solo - INH) ( This is critical for a easier transition, if you cant get both it is best. If not, get the desktop and combust when outside) - Break smoking patterns, meaning: identify situations or places where you know you always combust there and avoid them as much as you can. Phase 2: - For a successfull transition you need to really stop combusting, you can't keep doing both because you will never fully quit and after a while just revert back. - Keep doing what you did on phase 1 - Don't quit because you did not do something in phase 1, this will happen many times. - Quit cigarette and joint smoking for at least three days. Be sure to have good weed and don't stress if you can't make it to three days. - Each time you try to quit for three days and don't make it, try again. - If you keep doing this, combustion will taste worse everytime you fail to quit, making it easier and easier to only vaporize. - By now, you should have a portable that allows you to vaporize everywhere. This is especially important in this phase since when you are out of the house or somewhere you can't vaporize, it is easier to smoke tobacco or roll a joint and be done with it. Phase 3: - You managed to quit for three days in a row without failing. Now you just have to keep quitting. - I did an entry in an ios app that counts days and says "stop continuing" because i stopped to continue to smoke. I wrote that because i feel i still haven't quit completely because after more than 8 months i still have combustion urges, they are worse when i'm drunk or partying or in a smoking environment. Reminding me of how long i have gone, helps me keep going. - By now you should slowly start getting some habits back from Phase 1, slowly!! It is difficult to have self control when you are drunk and excited. It is difficult as well when other habits became that way along with smoking. (coffee and a cigarette anyone? ) This was written taking into account my life, personality and my experience of quitting cigs and then joints to only vaporize. Feel free to add on my advice or offer different perspectives. I am sure there are other stuff i forgot/haven't tried that are equally/more effective. And remember, fuck combustion.
