Default Taking a 3 Week Break Phrom Hookah, How do I Resist?

I'm taking a 3 week break phrom hookah because I pheel like I should to give my body a little bit oph a rest.
I'm going down to San Diego again and as some oph you know I'm an avid Tangiers smoker so I will obviously be there every night probably.
Any suggestions on how to resist the urge and phight nicotine withdrawls without using any sort oph nicotine patch or anything?

In my experience, nicotine withdrawal cold turkey is very, very unpleasant. I would highly recommend a small pack of the nicotine chewing gum just in case. But get the fruit flavor. The regular ones taste like a dirty ashtray. When I attempted to quit smoking cigs a few years ago I went through several bags of lollipops. It really just depends on how frequently you smoke. If you're a social smoker then you may find you don't have as much of a dependence on nicotine as you are anticipating, so you may not experience withdrawal symptoms at all.

In my experience, it's easier to quit "for good" than to "take a break". If you're really addicted, I would say a nicotine substitute like gum is your best bet. Or maybe dry nasal snuff..I've never tried it but I'm thinking about it.

Using nonTangiers-related spelling might be a good first step.

Side effects of doing this include:
1. Increased readability of your posts.
2. Decreased annoyance levels in readers of your posts.

e-cigs can help tide you over. Overnight I stopped regular cigs after 15 years of it.

It's been over a month since I've smoked hookah tobacco.

It's just another way for me to relax, I never NEEDED it, I just like it. I just have not had the time recently. So as for the how do you resist part - I cant help ya there. Being addicted to anything would suck.

I was fine after the first bowl yesterday, but after the 2nd I got a headache and I barely smoked it because I didn't care for it.
I forgot to include that my GF of 13 months is getting upset about my smoking habits so I'm doing it for her as much as I am myself. I

Staying away from these forums might be a good state. Hookahpro always makes me REALLY want hookah.

i've actually done this and i know what you mean it's not fun at all. long story short i went to a 3 day party, there were two hookahs there and i would just sit around and smoke ALL day for like 3 days. i stopped for quite a bit after that...

Just to be a dick to myself, I'm just going to deprive myself of nicotine and see how that goes.
If it gets too bad, I'll just snag a cigarette or something from a friend
