Give up... with a powerball...
Within under two weeks of using a powerball, my friend stopped smoking...
Used to smoke 10 a day, and now when she wants a cig, just powerballs, and hasnt smoked at all...
The science bit is I think the work out sends stuff to your brain and makes you feel good. (il let somone else explain that in later in the thread)
Wow, excellent. I'm not a smoker, though I have in the past, and it's just as much a mental problem as an addictive one I think. It's about having something to do...having something in your hand...it's habitual. Like going to a pub...can you just sit in a pub with your mates and not have a drink? It feels wrong.
Let's hope your friend keeps it up and doesn't revert to that stinking habit again!
Wow thats a brilliant idea!well the only people i know who smoke are my dada and sister,i already got my sister a powerball maybe i shall tell her to use it to get off the sigs.
I gave up smoking over 2 years ago.
The trick for me was to firstly come down with a stinking cold and secondly tell myself that I was only giving up 'buying' cigarettes.
I'd happily smoke mates ciggies, but when they realised they weren't getting any back they soon stopped sharing.
Was a crafty way of cutting down.
I don't have a drink problem per se, I just go for the occasional binge drinking sesh every couple of months or so in between a few beers or glasses of wine at weekends.
But I recently packed in the drink too, but only for a month to see if I could do it, after a particularly nasty hangover.
And that was weird being out with mates and not drinking.
I probably drank a greater volume of liquid than I would have if I'd been on the beer, I just can't make soft drinks last.
And 10 pints of soda water with lime weighs heavy on your bowels, let me tell you!!
I've often thought of going T-Total or atleast trying it. Im the same as you in both the fact i gave up smoking 2 years ago (well 2 1/2 actually) and that I usually have a binge drinking night once every couple of months (plus 1 rugby tour a year which is 4 days solid drinking).
Did you feel much better for not drinking?
Alot of good benefits with using powerball!
Yep, it's a very handy tool!
