Advantages: Can smoke anywhere
Disadvantages: Still be smoking it in 6 months time
I have been using the inhalator for about 7 weeks now and it starts off as the best thing I have ever experienced. I did not choose a start date, I actually decided to stop when I was ill as this would give me the best start. How have i dreaded that decision, as now i am wondering if i did the right thing. I actually needed to stop as I do a lot of squash and have recently started running. (Mid life crisis Maybe).
Anyway this plastic tube with a cartridge initially helped and you actually do get used to the dreadful taste, but beware, because I am actually getting dependant on this now and my cravings are not getting any better. I still wake up in the morning excited about my first fag but then a wave of disapointment comes across that i actually do not smoke anymore. I still have about 3/4 of the nicotine inside a cartridge a day and I actually went 2 days the other day without it, but i missed it so much i am tooting for britain to make up for it.
Dont get me wrong, this thing can work but you need willpower as well. The other positive point about it, is that you can smoke it anywhere, in meetings,in bars etc.
This white stick will be your best friend for about 6 months I reckon. Good Luck
Writing this a week further than where i was and i am absolutely gutted as the weed has caught up with me and i have done the unthinkable and had 1 cigarette, which has led to me smoking about 4 cigs in the evening.
Don't get me wrong, I am so ashamed of myself but i thought i would give you the experience i have had by using the inhalor.
I am going back on my comments above and want to tell you the dangers that the inhalor could bring to certain individuals.
I stopped smoking because i was ill and not because i was completely focused on stopping, the 2 months that have passed have been an incredible but sometimes painful journey in regards to cravings. The problem using the inhalor is you dont really kick the habit and i used to reach for mine for a toot just for the sake of it, this leads to constant nicotine going into the bloodstream making each day/week a constant battle. The cravings do reduce but when i went out for a drink, i naturally reached for my inhalor and increased my intake due to extra toots on the white tube.
I will kick this habit and the reason i am not having any in the day is because i am embarresed to tell anyway i am a wimp and i do not want anyone to know about my downfall.
Do not get me wrong, if you have enough willpower and balls, then you can do it, but me personally i will never use this again.
If i had enough willpower and energy to kick this filthy habit, then i will go cold turkey, as i believe if you really want to do it and set your mind to do it, then you will do it without pumping nicotine into your body from any other nicotine help aids.
The other point i wanted to let you know about the reason i did cave in, was i actually did miss smoking and actually did miss the smoke coming out of my mouth. They need to invent a plastic tube which gives you a nicotine hit followed by a stream of smoke coming out of both nose and mouth, but does not harm you in any way. ( In my dreams )
Good luck if you are thinking of stopping smoking and do not use me as a role model as i am not, but please be prepared to fight and be sure you want to give up.
Good luck all, this is not the end for me in trying and the next time i may have cracked it
