A game to kill nicotine receptors

Blog Post created by seamac on Apr 22, 2015

Hi,

I just read again some information about how smoking increases the number of nicotine repeptors in our brains.  I must have hundreds of millions of them!!  This got me to thinking that it might be fun and helpful to come up with a game or chart to "kill" a few each day I protect my quit.  Wondering if anyone has done anything like this, if so how did you design it, what did you use?  It could be as simple as a big piece of paper covered in dots that represent the reseptors that get crossed off daily but that seems kind of lame...Also any idea how long it really takes for one receptor to die (so to speak) ?  Just thought we might have some fun coming up with ideas and another small reward for one more day smoke free.  

Thanks, seamac
