This method is mostly based off of oral fixations and substitution. Many people struggle with quitting for this reason alone. Some times these fixations are even linked back to child hood pacifiers and even breastfeeding.
So for anyone that wants to quit smoking and loves their pacifier, here is one method I have used.
I start out with smoking since I like it most. Then cut down to cigars since I don't like them as much. Lastly, I am dipping snuff and It's not hard to quit since I don't like it as much but still want nicotine.
You can use hookah, chewing tobacco or other forms of tobacco as well based on preferences.
I start out with my most liked. I have a smoke and the next time I want a smoke, I substitute with my pacifier. I do this for a week or until I have cut down a bit. A pack of smokes lasts me a day at the beginning and two or three days when I step down to cigars.
Then I bump down to cigars and alternate puffing on one for a few drags and pacifier. This goes on for a week or until I have cut down some more. A pack of black and milds lasts me a day and ends up lasting me for two to three days when I am ready to transition down.
Finally, we cut down to snuff. If you are at this point, you can most likely quit.
Feel good, you are on the home stretch.
Snuff is my least liked of the three and is a lot different from the other two steps. This point, like the others, uses the pacifier to substitute every other snuff use, but it differs where as you always have the pacifier in when you dip.
The main point of this is to get nicotine satisfaction while having the pacifier in your mouth. You should spend more time on this step than the other two steps due to the psychology involved to make sure it cements good.
Eventually, you will need the dip less and less and spend more and more time with pacifier in your mouth. This will continue until you can just use the pacifier and be content.
The entire proccess is done at your own pace as you feel most comfortable, but make sure to set goals with it too.
Good luck to anyone out there that is trying to quit
