As we were chatting about quitting tobacco on the June 6th Episode #49 - removed link

I thought I'd share what worked for me, to break the addiction (of 17 years) and allow me finally give up tobacco. Obviously there are risks to smoking in general, but we know tobacco kills, and the addiction had a huge impact on my smoking habits. I noticed my desire to roll has plummeted and I've gone from 9-10 spliffs a day to 3-5. Now I roll to get more high, not to scratch an itch.  

My experience was after a 3 days to a week, the back of it was broken and there's no going back (had some straaange compulsions and weird thoughts). However, after 30 days, I have no desire to ever have tobacco again. Also, props to Podge for the inspiration! My last tobacco was on the 14th march this year.

-----

Anyway, I'm not associated with either at all, but the first product I used was Herbakko - www.herbakko.com

This is highly praised on Reddit and many other locations, it's convenient to roll with and decent value compared to tobacco (in Ireland at least). However, there was a certain flavour that I didn't quite like. Looking at the ingredients, I thought it was rose petals, but it turned out to be marshmallow leaf (I bought some individually to test).

So I then switched to dried Raspberry Leaf by Herba Organica - herbaorganica.co.uk (also on Amazon)

This was just as smooth as tobacco to smoke, even a little lighter on the chest (same was said by a friend). But still has some regular chesty vibes, for you hardened smokers out there. They do include some small stems which I pick out, although the leaf itself is quite finely chopped.

I store mine in the original bag long term as I buy 100 grams at a time, but for the day-to-day stuff I pack a Dutch Passion tin and carry that around (might not be the safest if caught!).

Just thought I'd share, as if it helps one person to quit, it's time well spent. Good luck!

I quit 5 + yrs ago, I smoked for 38+ yrs. I still want a smoke just about every day at some point it crosses my mind. The same with a drink. But if I have a drink then I'll a smoke, and if I have a smoke I may as well have a drink too.

But now I'm short half my right lung, so I try to grow me some 1 hit wonder and just relax. It's all good. One day you'll decide, today is the day, and you do it for real.       peace

You got this @chillbert !

Haven't used tobacco in a year this August. I found it totally changed my relationship with the herb. Like Mistawes said I don't smoke to get that nicotine fix just to get high and I get way higher lmao 

I know some indigenous groups use comfrey to help kick tobacco but I would read up on that before trying anyone reading this.

I gave up tobacco 3 yrs ago and was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to give up. I tried everything from patches to gum to vape pens and the only thing that did it was willpower and repeatedly telling myself I don’t need this! Not one day still goes by were I don’t crave a smoke. I now only smoke pure joints 0.5-0.7 or 1g if I’m feeling flush, it took a bit of getting used to but now most strains I’ve tried I can smoke without coughing up a lung( except dawg🤮🤮),but like Mitch said it has totally changed my relationship with the herb! The flavour the effect everything. I lapsed one day about a year ago and after my first couple of tokes I threw it and put the pack in the bin, the taste was rank absolutely fucking awful and no word of a lie the pain in my lungs was mind blowing especially as I now smoke pure,I didn’t think there would be any difference inhaling how wrong!!

so I want to wish all of you quitting good luck, it’s hard and a struggle and you’ll probably always crave a smoke, so roll a joint, the best substitute for tobacco is cannabis. Always keep your hands busy, try not to get bored and every time your demon says to you you want,need crave a cig just tell yourself no, no I don’t fuck off! You will be constantly arguing to yourself for about 2-3 weeks but it gets better! And there is no better feeling than saying no thank you I don’t smoke when someone offers you one, even though you have a big fat joint in your pocket 😂😂 Good luck you can do it💛💛✌️
