Smokey Joe

Think back a few years, you’re sitting in a club, it’s 3am, the place is absolutely heaving and everyone is smoking. The entire club is a fog of cigarette smoke and no one is even slightly bothered. Can you imagine that now? Funny how times change and how quickly!!

Counting on sheep

I’ve got your picture, I’ve got your picture
I’d like a million of them all round my cell
I want the doctor to take a picture
So I can look at you from inside as well
You’ve got me turning up and turning down and turning in and turning ’round
I’m turning Japanese
I think I’m turning Japanese
I really think so
Turning Japanese
I think I’m turning Japanese
I really think so
I’m turning Japanese
I think I’m turning Japanese
I really think so
Turning Japanese
I think I’m turning Japanese
I really think so

How I learned to stop worrying and just stop smoking

After extensive cutting and pasting I came to the conclusion that there was no right or wrong way to quit smoking and that every person has different needs. My key concerns were:

  • Detoxing and flushing out the nicotine as quickly as possible
  • Dealing with the munchies, increased appetite and consequently weight gain
  • Having something to do with my hands
  • Stopping myself going mental

To combat these I have:

  • Consumed at least 3 litres of water a day
  • Stopped caffeine consumption
  • Gone a bit mental
  • Eaten loads of vegetables, nuts and seeds
  • Taken Cortitrim 3 times a day
  • Slept well

Most of these items are obvious, Cortitrim is detailed below…

How does CortiTrim work?
Siberian Ginseng and Ashwagandha are adaptogenics, or anti-stress herbs, which exhibit an extraordinary capacity for enhancing our adaptive responses by exerting a non specific normalizing effect on our bodies. Adaptogenics can prevent stress from taking such a toll on our nervous, immune and hormonal systems. They promote adaptability to all types of stress, including environmental and emotional. Green Tea, Siberian Ginseng, and Withania assist physical fitness by improving physical performance, energy level by reducing fatigue tiredness and exhaustion that might be experienced during times of stress or strenuous diet and exercise programs. Cortitrim also contains B-complex and Chromium to aid in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats, improve body composition and assist in fat loss and to help nutritional support during a low calorie diet program.

What results can I expect from Cortitrim?
Although results will vary from person to person due to metabolic and hormonal factors, when used in conjunction with proper diet and exercise Cortitrim may help reduce overall stress levels in as little as a few days, a visible reduction in belly fat within four to six weeks, and significant results within three months.

Support when quitting smoking

I signed up to the Nicotinell active stop programme which looked really good. When my quit day approached it warned me that is was going to ask which nicotinell product I was going to be using. I decided to make a clean break and end my nicotine addiction as quickly as possible and therefore chose not to use nicotine replacement but was happy to continue with their philanthropic support programme. As it turned out they cut me off on day two. No nicotine product, no support. Not even a goodbye.

Does Nicotinell want to help us to quit or does it want to continue to enslave us with nicotine under a smokefree disguise?

A wolf in sheeps clothing, nothing more, nothing less.

 I am on Day 16 as a non smoker.
