Natural and Effective Ways to Quit Smoking

According to a survey, an average smoker needs about 5000 cigarettes each year which means that they need to spend a lot of money on them. Although e-cigarettes have been introduced to encourage smokers to quit smoking, it has not helped a lot and instead people have been hooked on Vape.

Today we have collected a list of natural and effective ways to quit smoking. The thing about these tips is that none of them are actually heavy on the pocket.

Set a date and be prepared for the difficulties

A study confirms that neither abrupt quitting nor reduction in smoking have better results when compared with each other. So no matter which method you choose, choose the one that you feel suited to. Both of these methods will come with their own difficulties.

Medical experts suggest that start by setting a date when you want to quit smoking. Tell people beforehand that you are planning to quit smoking and throw away all your cigarettes on that date.

Watch your dietary choices

A study presented results that people who eat fruits 4 or more times a day are 3 times most likely to quit smoking when compare to those who eat fruits 2 or fewer times a day. The study also presented the finding that the effects of this habit can last up to 14 months.

The most important thing the study revealed is that the following food items makes the taste of cigarette worse and would help in lesser cravings for a smoke.

  • Diary items
  • Milk
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables

This also means that a person should avoid triggering foods like the following.

  • Low-calorie meals
  • Alcohol
  • Coffee

Try behavioral therapy

Most smokers are not able to quit smoking due to these problems.

  • Nicotine dependence
  • Psychological distress

It is a proven fact that behavioral therapy and support helps increase the chances of long-time smoking cessation by 25 percent. This behavioral therapy can be done in both group or individual forms like on phones, e-mails, and face-to-face.

Go for a walk or start any other activity when you feel like smoking

This is a proven fact too, that people who smoke often have less energy and even lesser desire to exercise which is caused by decreased pulmonary activity.

Those who cut back on smoking just a bit will ultimately feel a desire to exercise. Exercise has been proven to be a catalyst for increasing the desire to quit smoking as well as reducing the cravings and withdrawal symptoms when quitting smoking.

Keep some gum or healthy snacks at all times

Studies have concluded that smokers tend to gain weight after they quit smoking by 4 to 10 pounds. This usually happens due to the carvings for a snack since they have quit smoking.

Experts advise that instead of binge eating try eating healthy snacks like nuts or gums. Gum helps the person who has recently quit smoking by keeping their mouth occupied. If this does not work for them, they should much on some nuts like almonds.

Many people are not aware as to how powerful Nicotine effects really are and how much body starts depending upon it. It is very common that most smokers in the early stage go cold turkey and a statistical survey shows that only 6 percent smokers are able to successfully quit smoking; while 94 percent revert back to their old lifestyle.

For those 94 percent, these are the 5 FDA Approved methods to help them quit smoking.

  • Nicotine patches
  • Chewing gum
  • Lozenges
  • Nasal spray
  • Inhalers

The last 2 can only be prescribed by a doctor.
