Savour your sweet-tooth



After meals can be really difficult, so just after dinner make some room for the sweetest thing in your house. Or maybe you can go healthy way by having a piece of fruit, a dessert, a piece of chocolate, or simply some gum.


Sunflower seeds can be helpful too



 Whenever you have cigarette cravings rush to your dental kit and brush your teeth. For when you’ll have that clean feeling you’ll avoid lighting a cigarette and spoiling your breath. You can also keep other things around to pop in when you have the cravings like some mint, celery sticks, gum, and sunflower seeds. 


Let ginseng accompany you



Adding a bit of ginseng to your daily diet can be helpful to quit smoking. Ginseng slows down the neurotransmitter dopamine from releasing when you have a cigarette. Taking ginseng can also aid in dealing with the withdrawal symptoms like irritation, mood swings, etc.


Say no to black caffeine



Consume plenty of liquids like fruit juice or water during the first three days of quitting. It will help to flush out nicotine quickly. Softer green tea can also prove helpful.  Avoid black tea and coffee for a few days.


Be friends with Ginger and Lemon



Ginger is one of Ayurveda`s most loved herbs. Ginger also has Sulphur content that helps in eliminating addiction. Soak small pieces of ginger with lemon juice and mix it with black pepper. Store the contents in a container. Use it as your mouth freshener as chew it whenever you have an urge to lit one last cigarette.
