It would be equally hard for me to give up cigarettes and caffeine, I think. But as a caffeine-freak of more than 40 years, I have no intention of trying to give it up. The cigarettes - maybe, if I absolutely must someday.
As soon as I get my hair dryer going I put a cup of water in the MW for coffee. It will not abort an attack, but the heat helps soothe. And if I hold the hot liquid against the right upper gumline, it seems to ease the pain that often originates there. Sounds silly maybe, but this routine is all I had for 11 years. I have come to rely on it.
I do not recommend coffee for everyone, and I do not recommend cigarettes for anyone. This is just a statement about my vices, and how they seem to help me.
