Michael:Good for you. Are you going cold turkey?
Lisa:No, I tried that, but it didn't work.
I craved cigarettes too much.
Michael:How about nicotine gum? Have you tried that?
Lisa:Yes, but I didn't like the side effects. It irritated my throat.
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.
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.
Michael:If you say so.
Sometimes the cure is truly worse than the disease!
