Yea, we all know my stance on 12 step. But I'd refer anyone to 12 step before I'd even say the word 'Narcanon.' Sure AA and 12-steps indoctrinates new Christians that vote republican
, but Narcanon indoctrinates people to scientology and we all know; Scientology kills.
Besides sitting in a sauna, running on a treadmill, and taking lots of niacin does not get you off drugs or alcohol, getting off drugs and alcohol gets you off of drugs and alcohol. Sure sweating helps, but that's one small little step that they blow up to solve all problems.
Some pointers i got from my doctor about quitting smoking (mind you I still smoke) were:
Stay away from caffeine, other addictions trigger the nicotine craving.
Don't drink (any one who drinks and smokes knows, drinking makes you want to smoke)
drink lots of water.
chew gum, take up sunflower seeds...etc. it replaces a lost activity and relieves anxiety.
tell your friends you are quiting, they will encourage you to death.
sit at non-smoking tables, avoid looking or being around people who are smoking (ohhh that sweet sweet smell)
buy a stress ball, either that or lose all your friends because you pissed them off from being an a#$hole.
I need to quit soon.
