Are you trying to quit smoking? Have you tried the patch or gum? Did you ask about the success rates when you did? Of course you didn’t. Did you have great expectations? Excellent. That’s what
I experts want to hear.
If you’re afraid of trying e-cigarettes, I’m even more enthused. If you didn’t plan correctly, you’re up ten points over the others!
Let us move on quickly before you realize this is futile.
Are patches and gums useless?
Well…. of course not, unless you use them without “counseling“!
That’s also what tobacco companies wanted to hear as they welcomed you back. Also, there’s the public health “expert” sector trying to guilt and shame you, and they miss you as well.
Hang on. Steady yourself. The pharmaceutical companies – you forgot about them, didn’t you? I’ll keep the government out of this blog for time & space.
Did you plan for success?
Of course not. They know better than that.
Feeling a bit dizzy? Outstanding. It’s not your nicotine, you know – or lack of nicotine intake making you feel that way. It’s them. Public health and organizations
make you feel like insinuate you could succeed in your journey to not smoking. Then, of course, you fail.
Yep. Shame on you, too. You didn’t try hard enough! You didn’t plan!!!
Your failure? That’s what they’re counting on. It’s just around the corner.
So are your favorite cigarettes.
Normalize failure. It's good to fail. We assure you it is.

Still didn’t plan for success?
Go on, now… make a commitment, set a date, get your choice of
snake oil patches, gums or prescription medication – and once you didn’t, couldn’t or… well – failure is just a part of the process.
Don’t give up. PLAN!!!! Try again! Keep trying! Sure, the patch & gum have about a 7 % success rate, but – what do you care?
Why plan ahead? That would be silly. Half the time they give these ineffective methods away for free!!!
You will be held accountable.
You get ready, (nowadays, don’t forget your quit app so your friends can get in on the guilt giving sessons as well!)
Your favorite cigarette brand is waiting, your ash trays want to be dirty again.
Folks, this is 2017. Don’t you think by now there’d be a better way?
Smoke. Try to quit. Get “quit smoking aids”. Try. Fall short. Feel guilty and let them pretend to console you, but smoke again. Keep spending your money.
Nice businesses if you find the work in tobacco, public health or the pharmaceutical sectors, eh? Lack of success is their success.
Attempts is what public health and the pharmaceuticals like. The more the merrier. Repeat business is key.
Lets take a quick peek at quit attempts:
Thank you to The Vaper for the above graphic!
What about side effects?
Public health says “ask your doctor if it’s right for you”. They never mention success rates, and you never ask.
I’ll let you ponder the side effects of the different “government approved” methods here:
Choose your method at the top here: FDA approved method.
What ABOUT nicotine?
Now, consider nicotine. A startling thing, nicotine. A scapegoat for all things tobacco.
Without tobacco and the MAOI’s, it is not addictive.
So, with all the fuss from some pie-filled mouth in California, (Puff-N-Stuff I affectionately call him) there’s this that inspired this impromptu blog….
go stop trying to help you, I’d like to thank Gregory Conley of the American Vaping Association for this screenshot:
This is why you’re here.
Oh… yeah, the counseling – like my title said…. Staying in business is hard.
The tobacco companies want to stay in business, and who can blame them. The pharmaceutical companies want to stay in business, and who could blame them?
I’ll blame tobacco control experts. Screw ’em. They know better.
Like my title said…. “experts”…are useless without patches & gum to offer. Don’t get me wrong – they mean well – they’ve got
Don’t get me started on the Government tonight, they just want you to smoke.
Staying in business with any sense of relevance or truth, is hard.
