I completely forgot what it was but I'm sure someone from the DC can inform you of this. It was something implying massages with some special ointment, etc. I'm completely unsure of the details but I met somebody from Merigar many years ago who had done it successfully.

Just a quick comment - there is a very big difference between "I have to quit" or "I ought to quit" and "I want to quit." "I am going to quit" is your strongest motivational aid.
If deep down you do not want to quit and are not totally committed to quitting, you will very likely not quit.
Ask me how I know this.

The blurb says, "begin an internal dialogue with his future self to convince his present self that it can, in fact, live without its addiction."
I was taught that its preferable to view it in terms of what you gain rather than what you lose, quit, or give up.
