Smoking is one of the worst habits people can have. Cigarettes smoke is extremely bad for your health and in time, it can lead to numerous health issues. This smoke contains a number of carcinogens which are only harmful for the smoker, but also for all the people around them, including children.
Quitting can be really difficult, especially if you are a long-term smoker. According to a recent article published in Psychology Today, most people who tried to quit smoking have relapsed within a year. There are numerous nicotine patches, gums and quit-smoking drugs available on the market, but unfortunately, they are poorly effective.
Richard Webster has devoted years of his life to helping people with behavioral problems, including those with this addiction.
Webster recommends baking soda as an extremely effective remedy to help stop smoking, according to merriliiynhope.com.
THE TECHNIQUE FOR USING BAKING SODA TO STOP SMOKING
All you need to do is place a touch of baking soda on your tongue whenever you feel the urge to smoke.
NOTE: People who are on low sodium diets or those who suffer from hypertension should avoid this method.
“I read a newspaper article quoting a doctor who said to quit smoking, mix a tablespoon of baking soda in an 8-ounce glass of water and drink it, twice a day for the first week, then once a day for a second week. I had been smoking a carton a week then, or about 30 cigarettes a day. I drank two glasses on Sunday and Monday. It tasted like a flat Alka-Seltzer. On Sunday and Monday I smoked two cigarettes. On Tuesday I think I smoked one cigarette and then quit altogether. I continued to drink the baking soda concoction for the rest of that week. I don’t think I even needed it the second week. I have not had a cigarette in 20 years.” — Joanne Fanizza, Farmingdale, N.Y.
IMPORTANT: Baking soda should not be used as a substitute for healthy alkaline diet. Also, baking soda should not be used indefinitely.
It is recommended that you use it for several weeks, than pause for a few weeks before start using it again, even in case you haven`t managed to quit smoking. Excessive consumption of baking soda can damage your kidneys.
