Defeat Nicotine And Quit Smoking With A Firm Resolution

Defeat Nicotine And Quit Smoking With A Resolution

Someone who had quit smoking several times, said with anguish, “No, I don’t want to quit smoking. I have done it on several occasions in the past— what I wish to do now is to kick smoking!” Only when the resolution is that firm, can something tangible be achieved. All half-hearted measures are bound to fail! Ask any of the galaxies of smokers! Millions and millions! They want to give up smoking desperately. A smoker repeatedly thinks of giving up smoking! There are several voluntary associations to help the smoker. Every small township generally has a health-care unit. But the unfortunate part of it is that, for every such unit, there are hundreds of small and big tobacco-products selling shops. The promotion campaign for these products goes on unabated, through newspapers, important periodicals, and TV channels (though it is banned to some extent) and the demand for tobacco products goes on increasing relentlessly. Is it ever possible to quit smoking? Defeat nicotine? Before trying to defeat your physical and psychological enemy, try to know its strength and to what extent it has taken hold of you because its destructive capacity is no less than additives such as heroin or cocaine. Remember, in the blood of a hard smoker, each and every cell is surcharged with nicotine. It has become part of the blood. Therefore, pregnant mothers -beware!…

Quit Smoking Tip — How To Manage Cravings With Herbs

One of the difficulties in trying to quit smoking is that smokers become physically dependant on nicotine. Smoking affects the parts of the brain that relate to reward and pleasure. It increases the amount of the neurotransmitter, dopamine, and the nature of nicotine is that it creates a cycle of positive reinforcement within your brain that makes you want more. Scientists have found that when you withdraw from chronic nicotine use, it results in changes in these neural pleasure pathways. And the effect on the brain is similar to what someone addicted to cocaine, opiates and other drugs experiences. Hence, depression and anxiety are common. Fortunately, some resourceful modern herbalists began applying traditional knowledge to a modern problem. In Ayurvedic medicine, common garden variety oats (but not oat straw), is used to treat opium withdrawal. The herbalist Anand, using a tincture (an alcoholic extract of the herb), applied this same reasoning to nicotine withdrawal, with significant results. In a group of 26 heavy smokers, he gave an oat tincture, and in another group of 26, he gave a placebo. The group who took the oat tincture smoked less cigarettes, and this effect remained for two months after they stopped treatment. The herbalist Weiss theorizes that it is the sedative effect of oats. Oats contain as active constituents the indole alkaloid, gramine, and the alkaloids avenine and trigonelline….

Quit Smoking With Some Pricking

Almost everyone of us knows that smoking causes cancer, emphysema, and heart disease. Excessive tobacco use can actually shorten a person’s life by 10 years or more. Based on records, this pernicious habit can cost a smoker thousands of dollars every year. So how come a lot of people find it difficult to quit smoking? The answer, in a word, is addiction. Once a person starts smoking, it’s going to be a very hard habit to break. Nicotine addiction is one of the most difficult addictions to beat. Smoking kills half a million Americans each year. It surpasses combined deaths from AIDS, car wrecks, homicides, suicides, drug overdoses, and fires. Even a non-smoker is placed at high risk when he or she is exposed to second-hand smoke. Each year, about four million children fall ill from second-hand smoke. Studies link smoking to miscarriage, stillbirth, birth defects, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Pregnant smokers increase their child’s risk for attention deficit disorder (ADD), conduct disorders, depression, substance abuse, and lower intellectual achievement. Research shows that every time a smoker tries to quit smoking, it boosts the chances of quitting for good. Chances are higher if it is combined with methods such as nicotine replacement, counseling, or an alternative method such as Acupuncture. Acupuncture is a technique that involves the use of very thin needles of varying lengths which…
