When one really wants to stop smoking, he will find a way. This was the case in the ten stories below. These people found strange ways to stop smoking and agreed to share them with us, so that we may be inspired and  stop this unhealthy habit as well:

1. Make them too hard to get

Pat Owens of Valley Steam N.Y.  said that he once tried to quit smoking by burying packs of cigarettes in a flower pot. Thus, it became too hard to dig them up and get a cigarette out, only to bury the rest of them back.

2. A month of no smoking for a yummy steak

Eric Katzman, Qeens, N.Y., declared that he quit smoking after taking a bet. His friend had dared him to quit for a month and, if he could do it, his prize would have  been a steak at Peter Luger Steakhouse, a famous place in Brooklyn. He won the bet but received his prize after 9 months!

3. Quit smoking or pay the price

Mike P. of Newport reported that his friends agreed to give money-1000 $- to a third if they did not succeed to stay away of smokes. As they were both too honest to cheat and too broke to pay the money, they quit smoking, and quit it for good.

4. Dog food instead of smokes!

Chris T. of New York City said that his cousin had smoked for 20 years when he decided to stop and he managed to do that in a strange way.  She started eating dog biscuits! Every time she felt the need to smoke, she chewed on the biscuits instead and today, she is a non-smoker!

She said that she once made a deal with herself to buy lottery tickets with no feeling of guilt, instead of spending money on tobacco every day. She stopped smoking that day but the lottery tickets were not winners so far.
