How to Quit Smoking When You Really Want To Stop
This could be the last time that you QUIT
This is a lighthearted sincere post about a significant and perhaps serious problem for smokers who 'can't quit'. This remedy may be the one that will resolve your dilemma, and will cost you almost nothing, will not sign you up for anything (except Hubpages if you wish) and may be accomplished without fanfare until you are 'clean'! Then you can celebrate!
First off the pen, er, keyboard, I wish to state truthfully that I am not a smoker and have never been a smoker, except for the only time I tried smoking driftwood and sucked the flame into the netherworlds of my guts. But that is a story for another time, and I do know a method of reducing nicotine craving that costs only the price of a couple of cigarettes - give or take that, depending on your determination to clear out your lungs permanently. Or at least til next Christmas if you choose that.
Your desire to end your smoking career, coupled with the increasing knowledge about the damages it can cause in long-term health is often not sufficient to begin the journey to healthy lungs, sweet breath, whiter teeth, and longer kisses. Nicotine addiction is (Said to be, and I believe it!) something horrendous that grabs, clutches and won't let you leave. So here is some help, hopefully a real assistance, and you may be able to begin today. However, I must add this disclaimer that this is not to be taken as any medical advice or practice, that you must choose to use at your own responsibility and descretion, that these statements have not been evaluated by the FDA nor any other governing agency, and I am not responsible for any action or result you incur. Thank you.
This home remedy method uses the principles of homeopathy, which is a natural type healing process discovered and researched by Samuel Hahnemann, the German physician who is considered to be the father of homeopathy. Its basic premise is 'like heals like'. Odd, but let me explain further. Samuel Hahnemann found that a minuscule amount of a say, mineral, could reduce or stop the negative symptoms caused by that mineral when too much exposure or ingestion occurred. Homeopathy is the holistic method of treatment with the underlying understanding that substances that cause sickness in a healthy person will in minute (homeopathic) dilutions correct those same symptoms. (Further information is found online along with a list of major homeopathic remedies, at www.answers.com/topic/homeopathy.)
Further, let's assume you walk through poison ivy and start scratching. The medicine to help you, which in homeopathic practice is called a 'remedy', is Rus. tox.Rus toxicohendron is a homeopathic dilution of poison ivy, and in dilutions so weakened that some ignorant scientists have studied and stated that "There is nothing in the solution, so it can't possibly work." Well, they just made the case for homeopathy, because while there may not be any poison ivy molecules in that remedy, the frequency or vibration of poison ivy is implanted into the solution - and that 'invisible amount of poison ivy' is the correct medication -i.e.- remedy to help get rid of your itchy rash.
With that realized assumption in mind, the following is a recipe for nicotine neutralization: Take a cigarette and sitr its tobacco into a small clean glass or baby food jar. Add three tablespoons of distilled water, three tablespoons of vodka, and if desired, a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Do not use white vinegar and read the label to determine that you do not have cider-colored white vinegar. Solution will be fine for use with or without the vinegar. Stir or shake this mixture vigorously til tobacco is thoroughly soaked.
Then with the solution now in the jar, shake it hard and smack it mightly back and forth, ending one side of your 'shake' with whacking your palm. This hard shaking is what makes homeopathic preparations different than other medicines as the sudden whacking and shaking back and forth is what dissolves the frequency of tobacco into the liquid solution. You must hard-shake the jar for a minimum of one-hundred shakes which will take a couple of minutes or so. I usually do a little extra just to make sure...Note that this solution as well as the following one will have lots of the tobacco molecules in them, but the shaking process is potentizing the solution with the tobacco frequency also. Double whammy here!
Now you may fork out the tobacco leaves and place in another small jar adding the liquids as above in the same proportions. Again shake and whack for at least one-hundred times. You may repeat this full prodedure again in a third new jar, but may just as well choose to discard the leaves this time. This process gives you two solutions, one slightly weaker. Mark them 'one' and 'two' to identify which is which, with the stronge (first) solution being #1.
Now you are ready to begin and you will need an eyedropper. If you have just smoked, do not do this until you have waited about thirty minutes. Then take one drop of solution #2 placed under the tongue and hold it there about a minute, then swallow. You may repeat this in about two hours unless you are heavily craving a smoke. In that case take another drop of #2 and hold under the tongue for a minute, then swallow. Try to wait another two to three hours for another drop, but if your craving is too intense, go ahead and take another drop. Pace your drops at about two to three hours apart unless you need the extra dose earlier. Note: Do not eat/use mint or chew mint gum, or use other strong flavored items like menthol within twenty or thirty minutes of taking your remedy dose - it will neutralize it's working effects. It is best also to refrain from eating for 10 to 15 minutes before or after taking your drop. Water is ok.
If after a day or two you are not somewhat reducing your smoking, you may try the #1 solution in the same process as you have done with #2 solution. If you did make the third jar of tobacco solution previously, you could start with that #3 strength rather than the #2. Your choice, as neither you nor I know what your best tobacco neutralizing strength will be.
It might be concluded you should better start with #3, advance to #2 if you are significantly lung depreciated or have other more significant health problems. Probably best to advise you to contact your physicians before starting this self-help project and follow their medically knowledgeable recommendations. Please remember Disclaimer above.
And I wish you success, hope, health and happiness. May your quitting be a fantastic renewal of all you wish it to be, and more. Best of luck, and best of health to you!
