Part of the reason that nicotine is so addictive and so hard to get rid of is because it permeates your body as a toxin. It gets into your system and is very hard to get out. But water is a natural detoxifier. It will purge your system better than just about anything. And your body needs water to counteract many of the harmful effects of tobacco and nicotine.

The water helps you heal and it enables you recover from smoking while you are trying to quit. As you abandon your regular smoking habits your body will heal on its own and start to detoxify, but water gives it an extra boost, and it speeds up the process, helping you fight your addictions that much more.

Ginger

As your try to quit smoking, you will likely start to feel nauseous. This is one of the most common symptoms people experience when they try to quit. To combat that nausea, you can take ginger, either in tablets, capsules or as a tea. It will calm your stomach and help you overcome the nausea. And it might keep you from being tempted to go back to the cigarettes for relief.

Multivitamins, especially those containing Vitamins A, C, and E are excellent for repairing your body and giving it the essential nutrients it needs to expel toxins. What you are looking for as you combat your addiction is something that can ease the withdrawal symptoms and make you better able to handle your cravings. Vitamins reenergize your system and give you the strength to fight back.

Ginseng

If you want to combat the cravings specifically, then ginseng may be the key. You can use about a spoonful of ginseng powder and add it to your juices, cereal, oatmeal or soup. It is best to take it during the morning. That way it can fight your cravings all day. If you find that it is not enough for your cravings, then you can increase your dosage or take it more frequently.

You may already be taking ginseng if you take a multivitamin, so look at what your vitamins have to see if you really need to take ginseng in addition.

Grape Juice

Home Remedies to Quit SmokingThe biggest part of conquering your addiction and the symptoms of withdrawal is to get the toxins out of your body. Nicotine is one of those toxins, and once it is out, you should not experience any more cravings or withdrawal symptoms. Increasing your water intake is a great way to do so, but you can fight even harder by drinking grape juice daily. The acids in the juice are natural detoxifiers and they will rejuvenate your system and cleanse out the toxins faster.

It is the toxins that are causing you to feel cravings and that keep your energy levels down. By using detoxifiers you can boost your energy levels and start to feel better much faster.

  1. The more you sweat, less you desperate.
    Nicotine drains out through sweat and helps you to quit sooner than the normal.
    Go for climbing a cliff, running, play soccer so that you secrete more sweat.
    Or visit sauna house for three days, you will experience the same.

    I have started to quit and reached “one cigarette per week” as of now.

    All the best!

  2. Yes, I am pregnant and have been trying to quit got a few yrs now, this pregnancy was a surprise and I don’t want to use any of the OTC stuff as it could be dangerous to the baby so yes this was very helpful

  3. I read somewhere that eating enough of certain green foods can make cigarettes taste repulsive (like broccoli). Im not sure how true that is but im trying to quit. Im on day 1. But i do know from trying to quit before that i get more hungry than usual. So i guess eat more greens is better because you get vitamins and wont gain the weight eating more fatty foods while trying to quit.

  4. No way that vitamins can cause you to stop or quit the smoking habit. There is only one way … your mind MUST be right and you will have to face the withdrawal symptoms; think that’s where all the vitamins and minerals can maybe help. Maybe not the best way, but it is said that after about 3 – 5 days the withdrawals are gone and that your lungs will already be in the repair stage, so I literally slept for 5 days non-stop, taking my sleeping medication the moment I woke up … and so; I stopped and quit smoking!!!

  5. I tried quiting in December…. It was the nausea that did me in. I’ll try the ginger this time. Hope that helps me finally!

    • Never had an issue with nausea – I just want to eat everything in sight, lol.

      But yeah, Ginger is supposed to be really good for upset stomach.

      Good luck!

  6. The key to any of these remedies is You. Your willingness to quite. I woke you and said Im done with these. I’m tired of being sick and smelling like it. I never smoked around my children but was imbarassed when I walked away so I can puff a cigarette. So why do something that’s embarrassing to me. When I told my children I’m not smoking anymore the look on their face and expression was my push to stop. It’s going on 4 weeks and 2 days and I will say Yes drink plenty of water. Take your vitamins. And yes ginger helps with the nausea feeling. Like I said in the beginning nothing will help you unless your willing to quite!

  7. I never dreamed of grape juice would help me quit, that’s awesome because I love it, and water as well. Thank you for the tips.I will seriously try them all, as a 3rd generation of heart disease, that I now suffer. I’m also will be using frankincense its been around for a long time as well its a great detoxification. Expensive but worth it. God bless I pray that you all succeed at kicking the habit.

  8. I’m 15 and I started last year because of friends and now my mom is upset daily because I smoke any ideas on how to stop

  9. Day 2 for me and I am drinking lots of water which really helps and brushing my teeth more often helps too….but I still feel really frustrated easily and I am usually right down to earth…I guess it’s just part of the withdrawals.

  10. I have severe lung problems. I have tried everything but a natural remedy. Defiantly going to Give it a try. Hope it works. My life depnds on it…I will definitely let you know how it works.

  11. Thank you for this information. I’ve been saying I need to quit for the past few years, but feel like I’m finally ready to give it up.

  12. The one thing that helped me stop smoking was 1/2 tsp of cream of tartar in 8oz of orange juice. It removes the toxins from your body. I didn’t even crave a cigarette. Drink the mixture once a day for 2 weeks. I even lost a little weight.

  13. Well, I haven’t smoked while reading and commenting; perhaps this ‘community’ thing should be number six.
    For those who don’t get the significance of it, I am a chain-smoker, or ‘Chainer’.
    Sitting in the patio with a pack beside me, I should’ve been blowing smoke all over these comments!
    So, thx 2 all!

  14. Best way to quit smoking is to chose any week day when u do not smoke. Try it with one day then move on with two days and so on. You do not need anything for no smoke for the day, keep yourself calm and health conscious.

  15. Day 6 here. It’s been rough, both physically and emotionally. I think the hardest part is the psychological cravings as the physical symptoms subside!

  16. I tried these methods to quit and it worked with some added help. I also got super body cleanse at Trader Joes and did these methods. I have been smoke free for 4 months now. I picked the first day of my 2 days off work to start. Then I started the super body cleanse and followed the directions exactly. Then I combined drinking water, putting ginger in my food, taking a multi vitamin and ginseng supplement, and skipped coffee in the morning. The reason I skipped coffee is because for me coffee and a cig in the morning used to start my day. This also helped my high caffeine addiction too, lol. The super body cleanse is a 2 week supply. I also worked out more during those 2 weeks which really helped. After 2 weeks I did not want a cigarette at all, improved my health, and cleansed my body. Now I can’t stand the smell of cigarette smoke and even e cig vapor. I had to quit because I smoked an e cig for a while to try to quit, really bad idea for anyone. The high nicotine levels in e cig juice caused me to develop an allergic reaction to nicotine. So I switched back to regular cigarettes because of the cravings. I tried lower level nicotine e juice and 0 level nicotine level e juice but I was constantly smoking the e cig 10x more than regular cigarettes. The allergic reactions were very minor but I needed to quit completely. So I tried this with my own tweak to these methods and it worked for me.

    • Hey John, Awesome news & we’re so very happy for you. I found this site very interesting. I’m not a smoker but been trying for years to get my sister to stop smoking. She’s been smoking for 40yrs. She’s been in the Hsp. “COPD” so many times & then they have to pump her up with steroids. She can’t use any of the patches.

      Question: How long were you a smoker?

      Thanks,
      John

  17. I was diagonose of Emphysema in 2010 and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) 3 years ago, our family doctor told me there was no cure but it can only be controled. Ever since then i have been running heather scepter looking for a solution to my problem because i was going to lose my Job if i dont get better, until i ran into this online testimony of Dr Lusanda who have been curing people of COPD with his herbal remedy i immediately contacted him via their email, to God be thy glory i bought this COPD herbal remedy and was cured within 3 weeks of usage, at last this is a break through for all COPD/emphysema patients contact this herbal clinic via their email drlusandaherbal(at)gmail(dot)com or website on www(dot)drlusandaherbal(dot)weebly(dot)com

  18. I’ve been cigarette free for 3 weeks. Did it by going cold turkey. The cravings intensify each week. I’ll try these and see if it will help me out.

  19. Transdermal scopolamine patches. Downregulates nicotine receptors. Can produce some intense nightmares. Can cause constipation. Not as nasty as the injection. The best way I have quit is through love. I think of the person who loves me and want to be healthy for her; it gives me strength. She would hold me lots. I am isolated, so I am on the nicoderm patches. Takes up to 6 months to quit, works. Stay away from people who smoke, places where there is smoking. In medical cannabis states, smoking a joint every time you want a cigarette takes about a week. A friend did it, has been off cigarettes for 30 years. His wife says, he ate everything in the house, was good for crap for the week, but well worth it.

  20. For the past few years I have had difficulty working out in yard, then in 2015 it got harder and harder to breathe. After many tests, it was a CT scan that showed COPD, emphysema and scarring in my lungs. I quit smoking 8 years ago but the damage has been done. I got to a point I couldn’t catch my breath and was coughing so hard I thought the top of my head would blow off, nothing was really working to help my condition. Finally i started on COPD herbal formula i purchased from NewLife Herbal Clinic, i read alot of positive reviews from other patients who used the COPD herbal treatment. I used the herbal remedy for 7 weeks, its effects on COPD is amazing, all my symptoms gradually faded away, i breath very more freely now! Visit www(dot)newlifeherbalclinic(dot)com I recommend this COPD herbal formula for all COPD/Emphysema sufferers

  22. “Good Day! To all that have COPD or Emphysema should please stop here and read up my story, So as you will know how to get your Healing. I had Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) for 8 years, and it really affected me and my family especially my kids and husband, some of my symptoms were dry cough, chest tightness and shortness of breath. My chest x-ray only showed bronchitis. Finally I went to a pulmonologist and was diagnosed with COPD, Am writing this article to appreciate the good work of General Health Center, that helped me get rid of my COPD/Emphysema that i have had for about 8years now, with no cure. I glanced through the internet a certain evening about remedy/healing for COPD, I saw so many comments about General Health Center HEALING for COPD and other Diseases, I was really ready to give a try because if i don’t give them a try I wont know if they can really heal this COPD, so I decided to contact them for a healing/cure and i was given lists of foods and fruits I should be eating during the process of healing/treatments, then I ordered the herbal healing medicine for complete cure, I started usage immediately, in exact 3weeks i started getting relief of my symptoms and i kept using the Medicine and after about 6weeks I was asked to go for a complete check up and I was amazed to see that I am totally healed from COPD…
