Ayurveda sometimes prescribes Herbal Cigarettes to people who are trying to quit smoking. These herbal cigarettes act as a 100% tobacco-free alternative to help curb cravings.
Herbal cigarettes are not to be confused with the regular cigarettes you see people smoking.
These herbal cigarettes contain a combination of herbs that help fight craving and reduce withdrawal symptoms.
You should consult an Ayurvedic doctor before you starting smoking an herbal cigarette
Quitting can be one of the hardest things any smoker does. In the initial days, the nicotine still lingers in your system, giving you withdrawal symptoms, and making you crave a smoke. In moments like these, it is important to remain strong and put all your willpower into not giving in to the temptation.
To help you during this time, Ayurveda uses Herbal Cigarettes, which are very different from the regular cigarettes you see people smoking. Here’s what makes them unique:
To begin with, they are 100% nicotine free.
They also come in flavours like haldi (turmeric), tulsi (holy basil), dalchini (cinnamon), mulethi (liquorice) and laung (clove).
They give you the satisfaction of smoking without the damaging effects of nicotine and tobacco.
Then, there’s the added benefits of the herbs you are inhaling.
The herb decoctions that go into these cigarettes can also be made into a ball. Sucking these balls also reduces the craving you may feel. However, you must keep in mind that herb cigarettes aren’t something that Ayurveda endorses for everyone and you must consult an Ayurvedic practitioner before using them.
It is important to surround yourself with the right people when you decide to quit smoking.
Avoid anybody who doesn’t support your decision or makes it hard for you to quit.
If you feel the need to excuse yourself from situations where people are smoking, don’t let anyone make you feel weak-minded.
Pick up a hobby to keep your mind off the urge to smoke.
