Smokers pollute their body, add to greenhouse gases, poison the ground through nicotine seepage from tossed butts and pollute animals, friends, family and strangers bodies through second hand smoke. Hard core smokers can have a hard time quitting and will probably never make any attempt to stop.
Trying to get a chain smoker to quit by asking them to stop usually doesn’t work. Hiding their packs & cartons of cigarettes can make them very upset and angry.
To help a smoker quit might be found not in smoking aids of nicotine patches & gum or power of the will but by changing the taste of the cigarettes. Smokers typically have a preferred brand of smokes for their palate. If they do change brands it may be that they have gotten tired of the taste. It’s similar to eating the same food every day sometimes you need a change. Sometimes smokers change their brand for a cheaper brand.
To change the taste of a cigarette the non-smoker will have to get their hands on the cigarette packs that the smoker has open. Since the smoker will probably have a pack on them or close by them the cigarettes may be close to impossible to get unless they are obtained when the smoker falls asleep. If the pack cannot be obtained, change the taste of a cigarette that the smoker has sitting in an ashtray when they aren’t looking or have left the room.
1} Spray the Cigarette Butt with Cologne Or perfume.
When the smoker puts the butt in their mouth it shouldn’t taste very good.
2} Spray Air Freshener on a Butt or Put Open Pack of Cigarettes in a Closed Box with an Open Air Freshener.
The cigarettes should soak up the scent of the air freshener changing their taste.
3} Dip a Butt in a Hot Pepper Juice.
4} Squeeze Onion Juice on a Butt.
5} Dip a Butt in Vinegar or Pickle Juice.
The non-smoker can also freeze the package of cigarettes and take it out of the deep freeze for thawing before the smoker wakes up or comes home from work. The reason for this is to make the cigarettes hard to light at least until they dry out from any condensation that may have gotten on them.
Another cigarette buster is to super glue each cigarette butt to the bottom of the package.
Repeat alternatives or mix them up to weed smokers off gradually.
Changing the taste of the cigarettes with any of the above may cause the smoker to cough, choke or spit and may be harmful when ingested. The smoker who has removed super glued cigarette butts to smoke should be advised against lighting super glue and breathing it in or ingesting it.
