Corset and Smoking Association [Sep. 15th, 2008|05:18 pm]

Every time I wear my corset I have cravings to smoke! Now, keep in mind, I quit over 5 years ago! I barely ever have cravings. I really think the reason I crave it is something about the restriction reminds me of when I used to go gothing, drink, and smoke clove cigarettes and I miss those days. I found myself staring at the smokes in the gas station even, which I haven't done in over 4 years.

My question is, how can I break this association? I love corsets, but this is the second time the feeling of a cinched waist has given me cigarette cravings.

You're skinny enough, so I say plastic boning!

*giggles* Plastic boning! *gasp* The horror! As soon as you sit down the corset becomes worthless. How will the plastic curb cravings for smoking?

I just figure it won't compress as much if the squish triggers the desire to smoke. I like corsets for fashion, but I don't understand the tightlacers! And I've never had Rigilene warp, but then again, I've probably never worn a corset for more than 6 hours a stretch. Of course, I've also never had a cigarette, so I should probably refrain from making suggestions!

I don't tightlace evah. I do however enjoy a well made corset. There is really no comparison in my eyes.

I strongly feel that something can be well made and yet encorporate more progressive materials.

Here's the thing, it will forever be associated in your mind that corsets=good times, and the cigarettes were part of that. So, buy a pack of cloves, go out wearing your corset, and instead of smoking the clove, lick the yummy sweet goodness that is the filter till it gets gummy then dump it in the ash tray. Or have a goth out night and omit the cigarette part of it and associate the good corset time sans smoke in your head.
