What if somebody invented an alcohol that greatly reduced the users chances of getting liver disease?  What if it contained less ingredients than regular alcohol, but nothing that was not already found in the original product. What if users were claiming they felt better after using this miracle booze compared with the old suff? Who would be against that?

What if somebody invented a soda that had less ingredients and users were reporting they felt better after drinking it, compared with their regular soda? What if professionals agreed the new list of ingredients didn’t contain many of the compounds found in traditional soda that we not good for you? Who would be against that?

What if somebody invented a cigarette that had approximately 3980 less ingredients than a traditional cigarette? What if users were reporting that they felt better after using this product as compared to smoking a traditional tobacco cigarette? Who would be against that?

One thought on “What If?

  1. At 2 or 3 cigarettes a day it’s hard to say wetehhr or not you’re actually addicted to them, but you are describing addictive behaviors.At any rate congratulations on making a healthy decision. In my experience you’ve taken the first and most important step: YOU WANT TO QUIT. so many people try to quit for somebody else and that always seem to end in failure.The second step I made was to restrict WHERE I was allowed to smoke. Not in my car, not at my desk, not in my apartment etc. (of course this was a few years ago when you could still smoke in bars, restaurants and at work).The next step I took was to make myself WAIT for each cigarette. Most smokers have to have a cigarette after each meal, at 2 to 3 a day this may not be the case with you. So when I was quitting I made a rule that I couldn’t have a smoke for a certain period of time after eating. Starting with 30 minutes and extending to 45 minutes, then an hour and so on. This also works for that one you have to have first thing in the morning, or right after a shower, or sex, or any other activity that always ends with a cigarette. I then made myself wait for every cigarette. When I’d reach for a smoke I then had to note the time and couldn’t have one another 10 minutes, then 15 and so on. Before long I was forgetting about that smoke for an hour. At this point I had gone from a pack and a half a day to 6 -10. I then turned to nicotine gum to help myself over the final hump. I had been smoking for just shy of 20 years at the time and I’ve been smoke free for a decade now.I’m betting that if you just employ the Want, Where, and Wait steps you’ll be a nonsmoker in a very short time. And keep in mind that they do say that it takes at least four weeks to break or create any habit, so don’t expect overnight results. Heck I honestly still had strong cravings for 6- 10 months after my last cigarette.
