1,119 - Methods for Quitting Smoking

Looking to kick the habit of smoking? Find out all the ways not to do it in this episode.

Lisa: This is it. I’m quitting smoking for good. 
for good: forever, permanently, from now on 

Michael: Good for you. Are you going cold turkey?
good for you: congratulating someone
go cold turkey: to quit something immediately, stop doing some sort of bad habit like smoking immediately

Lisa: No, I tried that, but it didn’t work. I craved cigarettes too much.
crave: to have a very strong desire to eat it, drink it, have it

Michael: How about nicotine gum? Have you tried that?

Lisa: Yes, but I didn’t like the side effects. It irritated my throat.
irritate: cause a part of body to become scratch, red or uncomfortable

Michael: That’s too bad. I suppose you’ve tried nicotine patches, too?

Lisa: Yes, I have. I became addicted to the patches and couldn’t wean myself off of them. I just traded one addiction for another.
become addicted: to have a strong desire or need for particular substances or even experiences

Michael: And electronic cigarettes?

Lisa: They only made me want to smoke a real cigarette. They were no help at all.

Michael: So, what now?

Lisa: I’m going to try hypnosis. I hear that it works for some people.

Michael: And if that doesn’t work?

Lisa: The last resort is acupuncture. Some people say that’s effective for quitting smoking.
last option for action

Michael: If you say so. Sometimes the cure is truly worse than the disease!
