Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

since already you have tried with, tapering the dose, using placebo but still you cant stop the habit... you need to keep your mind busy in doing your work, what ever may be the job... diverting the concentration, will help you to avoid using snort pills... you can consult psychiatrist, they will advice you some other methods..hope i have answered your question...

Take care...

Thank you for your advice but its not the mental that's keeping me from quiting its the severe burn in my nose the only thing that stops the burning is snorting more it kinda numbs the nose and stops the burning do you have any advice to stop the burning thank you
