Yes. Well. Right. You have been abusing your body a little of late. Drinking beer, smoking pot and quite a few cigarettes, too. And it’s hard to get outdoors to go for a run in winter. What’s a person to do?
Cold turkey seems a little extreme, but sometimes that’s the only way to stop all this shit from happening to you.
Most people fail at quitting ‘unwanted’ habits because one thing (having a drink) always goes with another (smoking). People who always have a coffee and a cig at morning break find it hard to ‘unhook’ the actions. So the only way to succeed is to do something new instead. Like taking a short walk, writing a poem or calling a friend.
But please remember, even John Lennon had trouble going Cold Turkey…
