What is really the most helpful aid to quit smoking and how can I use it to assist me with self discipline. After suffering a stroke my impulse control is seemingly nonexistent. Cigarettes don’t give me a feeling of escape, they actually disgust me after 3 years, my body just wants one so I have one. Will I need counseling to help with cravings or is it just mental? Nicotine patches and gum haven’t helped, is there something with better results?
