It is common knowledge that smoking is detrimental for the health. Therefore, giving up smoking can significantly improve one’s well being. Unfortunately, cigarettes are filled with carcinogens that are harmful not only to the smoker, but to the passive smokers as well.
Nevertheless, giving up smoking is not an easy task, and everyone who has tried it, knows what it entails. Hence, according to an article in Psychology Today, most of those who tried to quit smoking, relapsed within a year period. On the market, there are numerous patches and drugs that help people quit smoking, however, not all of them are useful. As written at merriliynhope.com, and held by Richard Webster who has devoted many years in helping people with behavioral problems and smoking addiction, baking soda is a potent remedy for quitting smoking as it immediately prevents the smoker from lighting up his/her next cigarette.
Procedure: Every time you feel the need for a cigarette, sprinkle some soda onto the tongue.
Important to know:
- People who are on a specific low sodium diet or people who experience high blood pressure should avoid this method.
- Baking soda should not be taken indefinitely.
- Never replace a healthy alkaline diet with baking soda.
To sum up, use this cure for several weeks, and then make a pause from couple of weeks before you start with the method again if you have not succeeded in quitting already. Surplus amounts of baking soda can sometimes lead to problems with the kidneys.
