I did this with cigarettes. I, too, quit again but not immediately. It took 5 or 6 months. I also didn't care that the cigarette tasted horrible. I knew that after a few of them I would start liking the taste again. I also was not trapped in a car with a bunch of smokers, I was in a smoke free building and decided I wanted to. Very odd behavior. I had not smoked in about 4 years when this happened.

If so, how?
I have tried hypnotism and NLP and went nowhere with it.
