I was hypnotized and finally conquered a nearly constant, twenty some year habit of chewing nicotine gum. It was an extremely easy habit, I could chew gum, everywhere at work, parties, church, playing golf, airplanes, literally everywhere! I have tried many times before, by cutting down, substituting other gums, using nicotine patches, and medication from my doctor, but nothing has worked for very long. I would always find pieces in a purse or pocket of jacket, then encounter something stressful and then once again I became it’s “slave” again This is why, I have waited 20 days after my appointment to write my endorsement of William Mitchell, so I knew I was giving true hope to others who are hopeless trapped with a nicotine addiction.
How could quitting ever be so easy? Unlike other attempts there were no bad withdrawal symptoms physically or mentally, and trust me this was a serious dependency, previously just thinking of not having “my special gum” with me for a 30-minute errand made me anxious.
If someone who was ingesting the equivalent of a pack a day of cigarettes in nicotine on a daily basis, can just walk away (well, with a pack of bubble mint gum) and finally be free of a habit that was partially negating all of the other healthy things I practiced, anyone can do it.
