Oh god, tell me about it.
I know this feeling/situation well. Having watched the same disturbing 
commercial over and ov...well, the beginning of over and over.

Peace, love and respect,

I used Kratom to get off H. and while it in no way took care of all the 
withdrawal symptoms- it definitely took the edge off.  After a very strong 
cup of Krattom tea (true- not the tastiest of blends, but an afternoon of 
epicurean delight was not my goal at the time....) I was actually able to 
get a few hours of sleep, which seemed like a miracle the second and third 
day into it.  Smoking it made me a bit giddy the first time- then had no 
affect at all the subsequent tries.  Very concentrated tea was the way to 
go.
    I'm not sure if it would help with quitting tobacco- unless you wanted 
to avoid lighting up for a few hours by putting yourself to sleep!  If there 
is a magic substance that would make the chain smoke I'm currently having 
less delicious, relaxing, and enjoyable- if there's something out there that 
would make me not LIKE the damn cigarettes so much- I would take it 
immediately.  It is a habit I'd theoretically like to get rid of.  But 
something in my brain becomes infantile when the thought of quitting occurs 
to me.  -Like when I see one of those new ads on TV-  I become squeamish 
watching the guy cleaning his Trachea- hole with a Q-tip at his bathroom 
mirror, or explaining how he can no longer swim because if water gets in the 
hole he'll drown- and instead of extinguishing my cigarette, I turn off the 
TV.
    So, maybe Krattom might help if one is not as hopeless as I am when it 
comes to this particular habit- it can't hurt to try.

to quite smoking because its rather stimulating and can give you the 
fidgits, restlessness and general desire to do something wiht your hands and 
mouth which can make WD's worse.

You may like to look into Blue Lotus or Kratom, its very common for people 
to go compleatly off ciggies while under the influance of these substnaces. 
Although I certainly wouldnt suggest you do it on a daily basis because 
generaly speaking replacing one evil with another usualy isnt the way to go.

Best wishes

       Preston you have piqued my curiosity here. I wonder what katt (I 
think that's how you spell it) would do for cigs? I know, I know, I'm sick 
but you never know. Might be kind of fun.                Randy
