Hey Smoky! What brings you in today?
Well I'm trying to quit smoking and I was wondering if you could saddle me up with some nicotine gum.
That's fantastic. To get started I need to know how many cigarettes do you smoke in a day?
I usually smoke about 10 a day.
Ok so we can get you started with 2 mg pieces. You chew one piece at a time every 1-2 hours, and up to 6-15 pieces per day...
Are there any side effects?
Good question, you might experience some mouth soreness, or a slight stomach ache. Also, while you are quitting, you might be a little ornery (irritated easily), experience some weight gain, or even get a little depressed.
That's nothing I can't pony up to. Will not smoking effect how awesome I currently am?
You will look way cooler as a non-smoker than a smoker. Also, if you ever need to talk outside of our visits, i am here. Or if you would like there is a quitplan available in Minnesota. Let's set up our first check back visit in 1 week to see how you are doing.
That sounds great!

In the following 12 weeks, smokey the horse successfully quit smoking and began training for the Kentucky derby. He had slightly less luck with the fillies.
