Lisa:This is it. I'm quitting smoking for good.
丽莎:这方法可行 。我烟戒的很好 。
Michael:Good for you. Are you going cold turkey?
Lisa:No, I tried that, but it didn't work.

Lisa:Yes, but I didn't like the side effects. It irritated my throat.
丽莎:是的,但我不喜欢它的副作用 。让我的喉咙不舒服 。
Michael:That's too bad. I suppose you've tried nicotine patches, too?

丽莎:是的,我当然试过了 。我对贴片上瘾而且根本无法戒掉 。
I just traded one addiction for another.
Michael:And electronic cigarettes?
Lisa:They only made me want to smoke a real cigarette.
They were no help at all.
Michael:So, what now?
Lisa:I'm going to try hypnosis.
I hear that it works for some people.

Lisa:The last resort is acupuncture.
Some people say that's effective for quitting smoking.

Sometimes the cure is truly worse than the disease!
