My bf has started taking medications to reduce/eliminate nicotine cravings, and says the only time now he feels like smoking is when he drinks.
So, he bought these 'air' cigarettes, that you can inhale and they give off a puff.
I'm skeptical about this, because to me the gestures/behaviours associated with a habit have to be extinguished (no pun intended!) too, otherwise, everytime he drinks a beer, he will get that physical need to be holding a cigarette.
In that case, I think it is better to resist the temptation until it goes away, vs. substituting a very similiar (yet this is non-lethal) habit.
Any thoughts on this?
