I haven't even begun this journey and already I am receiving, what I perceive, negativity. In MY attempt to quit smoking, I plan on utilizing NRT. Patches, to be exact. I also have some nicotine gum to help with cravings. Instead of hearing, "good luck" or other such encouragment, I am being dragged for flith because I am "exchanging one form of nicotine for another." That is NOT quite the response I was expecting. I have tried to quit smoking before...many times. "Cold Turkey" simply doesn't work for ME. If it did, I would have quit smoking 37 years ago.
Then there are naysayers who are throwing shade because I am a medical marijuana patient. In my honest opinion, being a MMJ patient and having MMJ at my disposal will HELP in my attempt to quit smoking cigarettes. THC is NOT nicotine and nicotine is NOT THC.
So, I am pretty frustrated at the moment. If I wanted (or needed) this kind of judgement, I would still be religious. But after being indoctrinated into religion at BIRTH, I managed to quit THAT. I had THAT as a 'crutch' MUCH longer than cigarettes. I can do this and I WILL do this...MY way. #EndRant
