I'm a non smoker right now. I miss the activity though so I searched out a tobacco free natural herbal smoke on the web. I found K2 Citron, a combination of common herbs including the familiar calendula blossom. Sounds innocuous right? I rolled up a cigarette of Citron and lit it on route to Albuquerque, a 2.5 hr drive. A few minutes later I wondered, "Am I high?" "Couldnt be." Then again, "I think I'm high!"
Since I'm easily swayed by the power of suggestion, later that day I lit another cigarette for a 2nd test. High again! When I got home I ran to Mikey "You gotta try this." Yep, he got high too. The high is super duper relaxing, gentle and gives rise to creative bursts. It's not overwhelming and lasts about 1 hour.
My conclusion: if your quitting smoking and need something to smoke for the occasions that you think may slide you back to a tobacco cig, try K2s Citron. And if you find pot to be too strong or if it makes you paranoid, you might just find that this is a great alternative.
Surely its worth asking if replacing one smoke for another is really "quitting." But since Citron is not tobacco (and not addictive), and I think it's a worthy trade off. My guess is that its a smoke you'll just forget about one day. By then, you're off tobacco.
