I just found this post. I have tried to quit smoking as a present to myself for Christmas, and my trigger is ice. I LOVE, and I mean I am OBSESSED with the taste of ice and cigarettes. Smoke, chew, smoke, chew. It is embarrassing, and I keep my habit confined to my car or on my porch at home. I crave cigarettes when I chew ice, and I have to have a cup of ice when I smoke. Giving up one is bad enough, but giving up both almost seems impossible. They call me ice princess at work because I always go to the ice macine before I take my break to smoke in my car. It was cute at first, but I am so embarrassed by my little obsession I am desperate to quit. Believe it or not, the habit came from a series of events. First, I just loved the freezer smell. I would inhale deeply. Then that wasn't enough. I needed to taste it. So I started chewing ice. Innocent enough. I started going through some things at work, and started smoking again after quitting for 5 years. I started smoking, but didn't really like the taste, so I would make sure I had a cup of coke or something onhand. Then, one day, I didn't have my drink, and I decided I wanted a cup of ice from Sonic, because everyone was talking about how good it was. I got a cup, and started chewing a handfull of ice right after I exhaled, and it was like an EXPLOSION! The taste was so addicting. The smokey-ice just got me immediatly addicted, now 6 months later, I am still doing it. Any advice on how to stop this ridiculous, compulsive behavior before it becomes an isssue that embarrasses me or my family?
