How to Quit Smoking For Good For Free

By: Jason Markum

Quitting smoking is one of the hardest things you will ever have to do. There are many different options for those who want to quit smoking, from patches, to therapy, to certain prescription drugs that are supposed to help you with cravings. There are so many different ways to quit that people often get confused and don’t know where to start.

Those methods all have one thing in common. They cost money.

Today I’m going to share with you my own method for quitting smoking. This is how I quit over eleven years ago. I used to smoke at least two packs of cigarettes every day but I quit using this method and literally haven’t had even one cigarette since then.

And the best part about it is that it didn’t cost me any money, well not really. That is to say, I didn’t have to buy expensive “patches” or expensive prescription drugs, or even expensive therapy. And my method doesn’t involve hypnosis like some of the more crazier methods I’ve seen that are out there today.

You will need a few things though. First, you need to pitchers that you can keep in the fridge. Any type of pitcher will do, the bigger the better. You will keep these two pitchers full of water and in the fridge at all times. Note: I like cold water, but it doesn’t have to be cold. If you prefer room temperature water, then keep the pitchers on the counter if you want.

Next, you will need one large cup. By large I mean at least thirty two ounces. The cup I used was from some fast food place. You know the kind I’m talking about right? The kind you get for free when you order an extra large soda. BIG, that’s the important part.

Finally, you need some sort of cigarette shaped food. In my case I used Twizzlers. You know, the red licorice type candy. But that’s a matter of personal preference. I suppose you could use pretzel rods or something else. The point is to have something that you can hold like a cigarette and chew on constantly to take the place of always having a cigarette in your hand.

And that’s all you need as far as supplies go. I guess I lied a little when I said this is free, but a few bags of twizzlers don’t cost that much, and you probably already have the pitchers and the cup.

So now let’s get down to the actual mechanics of this method.

First, fill up the pitchers with water and put them in the fridge. Next, open your bag of twizzlers and take one out whenever you have a minor craving to smoke.

In my mind, the difference between a minor craving and a major craving is this. A minor craving is just any old ordinary craving. A major craving is one you absolutely can’t ignore. It’s the one that tells you “Hey, just one cigarette is ok!”.

The twizzlers are for minor cravings, the water is for major cravings. Yes, for the first few days or the first week, you’ll have six to ten major cravings every day.

When a major craving hits, go to the fridge, take out a pitcher of water, fill your thirty two ounce cup to the top and drink it all. Don’t leave the kitchen, don’t close the door to the fridge till you drink the whole 32 ounces of water. Chug it if you can, drink it all within a minute or two if you can’t.

Next, after you’ve drank it all, refill the pitcher with tap water, then put that pitcher in the back of the fridge and move the other pitcher to the front (because it is cold, and you want it cold and ready for the next craving while the other one that you just filled gets cold).

What’s the point of this? Two reasons. The first is that it will take between five and ten minutes to do all this water stuff, during which time your mind will be occupied with guzzling down water and refilling the pitcher and NOT on your craving. Afterwards you may even have forgotten about the craving completely.

The second reason is that you need to flush the nicotine out of your system and drinking ALL that water, all day long, will really flush your system out quick. Within a week or so the immediate nicotine will be gone from your system and you won’t feel those cravings so hard.

Twizzlers and water…it worked for me and it will work for you.
