Whether it's DeWars or JW, it doesn't matter. It IS an easily acquired taste. Myer's rum or Tanquery gin would also qualify. The key is to say "Yes, I will, if I want to" and then not to, so asto re-inforce your will power. the hard part is the first three days; the work is the next three weeks. Then you're home. No substitutes, no crutches, just cold turkey, T34B, and say it's forever, otherwise, you'll have too many reasons to waver.
You are absolutely right about the waiting for one minute idea. I have been doing that very thing, both consciously and sub con. It does indeed work. After my 3rd DeWars, all bets on ANYTHING would be off. I'm beginning to think my aversion to Scotch has something to do with the peat smoke. Evidentally, I wouldn't care for peat smoke. I've always heard that you had to "acquire" a taste for Scotch. To this point, I've managed to not acquire the taste. I've never drank DeWars that I remember. Johnnie Walker was usually there in front. T34 B
Been there, done that. I'm really good at giving up smoking---done it many times. The hard part is surviving the urge, when it hits. So, try this: When you just gotta have one, say okay, I will but, I'm going to wait one minute, first. Apparently, the urgency to have a cig diminishes greatly after about 60 seconds. Then your brain takes control again and your resolve to not smoke can dominate. Of course, if it occurs after your third DeWars and rocks, all bets are off.
Early Friday, Reuters reported that Royal Dutch Shell's oil output in Nigeria rose to one million barrels per day over the last few weeks. Shell's figure defies the country's pledge to reduce production. Nigeria's total output is above the 1.89 million barrels per day quota by 250,000 barrels. Nigeria had agreed to make cutbacks under the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries' plan to reduce world supplies, which began at the beginning of April.
