The following was some of the more weird things I did

 

while going through the stress of decompress.

 

 

 

 

 

Sharpen knifes.  Oh Vay!  scrape, scrape, scrape....

 

Take your time with it.  Focus on getting the sharpest edge.

 

All my knifes are very sharp.

 

 

 

Emptied out my ashtray into a glass jar (with lid).  Added a 

 

bit of water to the mix.  When I feel the need I take a good 

 

long look at this stuff.  If I still feel the need I unscrew the

 

lid and take a long deep whiff.  Really brings back the whole

 

smoking experience - to include the gagging, retching, and 

 

full body coughing.

 

 

 

If the time and place allows for it; a good stiff drink.  

 

One shot only!  

 

Purely for medicinal purposes.  

 

Bonus points for Barcardi 151.

 

 

 

A personal favorite.  Chopping Wood.  Nothing like swinging an axe 

 

to work out the aggression and utter unfairness that constant 

 

denial piles onto my little psyche.  Plus, I'm doing something 

 

constructive!

 

 

 

Hold your breath until the desire to breath meets and exceeds 

 

the desire to smoke.  While holding your breath contemplate

 

how each cigarette you consume brings you closer to holding your

 

breath involuntarily. Breathing is far more satisfying then smoking.

 

 

 

Enjoy a fresh Jalapeño. Pop the whole thing in your mouth and 

 

chew slowly.  mmmmmm...  Bonus points for not having water 

 

near at hand.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
