Give Up Smoking With These Herbal Tips

Smoking is a difficult habit to kick but armed with these Herbal Tips, there is nothing that can stop you!


  • Tamra jal cleanses the ama (toxins) from the body and reduces the effect of the withdrawal symptoms

  • Triphala can cleanse your body of tar, nicotine and other toxic compounds.

  • Sucking on cinnamon sticks, cloves, or licorice can also curb the craving for cigarettes

Smoking is a habit that is hard to give up because your body desperately craves nicotine and when you take it away, the withdrawal symptoms caused can cause lapses. But with a strong willpower and the right Ayurvedic tips, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to nip this bad habit in the bud.

With these herbal remedies under your belt, your quitting process should last around 1 to 6 months and after that a steely determination should ensure long term results.

Herbal Remedies

  • Hydration is important at this time and drinking water kept in a copper container (tamra jal) is doubly beneficial as the water imbibes the qualities of tamra and cleanses ama (toxins) from the body.

  • Have 1-3 tablespoons of Triphala before bed to cleanse your body of tar, nicotine and other toxic compounds.

  • Herbs like Ashwagandha, Bala, Ginseng, and Shatavari are also great detoxifiers.

  • Instead of opting for nicotine gum, suck on cinnamon sticks, cloves or licorice to curb the craving for cigarettes while also rejuvenating the body and mind.

Remember that along with everything that you are doing, the company you keep has a huge effect on your quitting process. Surround yourself with people who support and believe in your endeavor and will do nothing to take you off your path.
