    Hello guys, I hope you are having a great day.

    I'd like to know how you're treating your nicotine and smoking addiction because I'd like to learn from your experiences. Personally, this is what I've been doing:

    • Vaping (I just bought a simple vaping mod, some e-juice and that's all)
    • Meditating (It has helped me a lot, especially mindful meditation)
    • Yoga (A simple 5-minute routine in the morning)
    • Cold showers (Especially in the morning and when I have feelings of relapse)
    • Journaling (Acknowledging that I'm walking towards the right direction)
    • Exercise (Simple strength training at home + boxing, which is now limited to shadow-boxing due to the lockdown)
    • Reading (Especially books that I love, like books by Carnegie)
    I do many of these things first thing in the morning, and so far now, it's helped me a lot to improve my life.

    Let me know what you think, and I'd also like to know what you're doing to combat your nicotine and smoking addiction!

    I recovered by self-examination via the 12 Step model which lead me to the truth, that there’s distinct difference between abstinence and sobriety.

    Even though I hadn’t had a dink in over 2 decades, I wasn’t sober, I was only abstinent from the drug alcohol, but not the drug nicotine, which is the # I killer of all drugs.

    BTW, I boxed Golden Gloves. I believe Manny Pacquiao is the greatest boxer of all time.

    I ‘m in my 70’s and still exercise, but more importantly, I have a whole food diet, mostly vegetables, no processed food. Bad diet is the #1 killer above drugs.

    Quitting smoking is one of the hardest choices people make. This decision is very difficult to accept mentally. Everyone often comes to a conclusion that vaping is the way out, and for many people it becomes true. Taking into consideration my experience, I can say that smokers are looking for the maximum effect of pleasure and the minimum threat from the consequences of smoking. That is why I suggest you look Vape Liquid UK, it shows a lot of vape options that will suit everyone's taste and size I personally buy products just at this onlie vape shop as it is the most reliable and affordable service. Moreover, the products from there are of the highest quality!
