Unique And Creative Tip To Stop Smoking

Yesterday, I received a comment on my medical blog about “Kicking The Smoking Habit” from The Cheap Gourmet and she agreed to let me share it with all of you. This is a great and very creative tip. While you would look a bit funny using this in public, it would be great for the car and home.

“My mom quit smoking last year after being diagnosed with lung cancer. She cut a drinking straw to the same length of her cigarette. Next, she tightly rolled up a paper napkin and inserted it into the straw. This gave her the effect of actually smoking because the napkin acts like a cigarette filter. When she "puffs" on the straw, she gets a similar feel as if she were smoking the cigarette.

Nine months later, she is still smoke-free and once in awhile she will reach for her "fake" cigarette. She smoked for nearly 50 years and this was the only thing she used to quit. I wish you much success on your journey and hope this tip helps you.”

Now that is what call ingenuous

Great inspiration to us all May just have to try that one and see how it goes

Gives me a bit more hope I have been at it for 40 years or more

Kudos to her

Wendy ~ I though so too. As soon as I received her post, I emailed her to ask if I could share it here. I am so glad that she agreed to. I need to go buy straws, thought that we had some but NO.
Keep us posted if it works for you or not.
