Only experienced can reveal the secret, I was a chain-smoker and after struggle found a way to quit.

Quitting smoking is not very difficult. You can quit smoking as I had done. I was a chain smoker for about Thirty years.

A smoker will never quit smoking forcefully or by using medicine, nicotine patches, gums and nicotine nasal spray, etc. usually never help.

As they started it on their own, the only way they can quit it is on their own.

If you are reading this article, it means you understand the value of your precious life and the life of your loved ones.

To quit smoking you have to understand four things.

Awareness

Willingness

Courage

Action

Awareness: Kids watch adults drinking and smoking and understand as a privilege, and cool action to engage in. Media market these products without considering the harmful long-term effect on society especially on our kids. Researchers say that cigarettes include more than 4,000 compounds and 400 harmful chemicals. Nicotine particularly makes them extremely addictive.

There is a huge list of diseases induced by smoke some are;

Lung Cancer.

Heart Disease.

Diabetes.

Stroke.

Liver Cancer.

Erectile Dysfunction.

Ectopic Pregnancy.

Vision Loss.

Willingness: If you are still reading, it means you are well aware of the damages, losses, and disadvantages of smoking, and you are willing to find out the way to quit it.

Courage: As you know smokers have nicotine in their blood and once you stop smoking, you will start to crave nicotine. So what you have to do is, cut the intake of nicotine by switching from the higher, Strong cigarettes to mild ones. This will disturb you for a while a bit, but it's easy to manage as compared to quit.

Once the level of nicotine reduces in your blood, it will be easier to quit. This process might take some time, but don’t worry.

Action: Start using boiled fennel and its water early in the morning. At night take one tea spoon of Fennel and boil it in water once done, store it at room temperature. Drink the fennel water and eat the boiled fennel, do this for one week only.

Once you complete the week, this is the time to quit. Stop smoking completely.

The First day you might be having a craving, divert your mind by eating something.

Second day you might be having a little craving that will be manageable.

Third day you will never feel the desire to smoke.

Quit smoking. Enjoy a healthy life with your loved ones.
