Just about anyone who has had “too much to drink” knows about the alcohol hangover, where you have an excruciating headache and your body does NOT want you to do anything that requires energy. The first thing you do when you wake up with a hangover is reach for some water and pain reliever. Millions of smokers worldwide have “found themselves” in a similar, vicious cycle where they pollute their body with 4,000 chemicals, and then wait about 30 to 45 minutes for the hangover to kick in, at which time they go outside and take a “nicotine” aspirin, which means lighting up some commercial-rolled GMO tobacco chock full of ammonia, bleach, pesticide, insecticide, herbicide and carpet glue (“firesafe”), and inhale, hold, then exhale about a dozen times.
Most of the popular cessation programs address one and only one thing – the nicotine, and they’re not even doing that right! People don’t realize who is actually SELLING the pills, patch and gum. They’re all a scam to keep smokers hooked. Nicotine is the third most addicting drug in the world, only slightly less than cocaine and heroin. Many smokers have will power and can quit cold turkey if the time is right or they face a near death experience, but all the rest who try to quit are rarely ever ready to battle the nicotine/dopamine war, and they go back to the well within 6 months. Smoking one cigarette drags the smoker back into a pack a day habit like a bad undertow can drag a person into the ocean after a storm (http://www.healthherbsandnutrition.com/remedies/s/smoking.htm).
The best cure for the cigarette hangover is to never put one’s self in harm’s way again. By combining behavior modification, knowledge, and nutrition, smokers have more than a “fighting chance” at quitting the habit. They have every tool they need!
Before tobacco was polluted with somewhere between 1,000 and 4,000 chemicals, anyone could quit the habit, even cold turkey without help, but because today’s premium brands have juiced up the nicotine so high, it seems to take a
small miracle to cure someone of smoking. (http://www.keepitsacred.org/network/index.ph…)
In fact, the majority of smokers light up just to feel normal, and catch a little bit of stimulation or relaxation; however, even after quitting a smoker’s organs and central nervous system remain poisoned from the chemicals for up to 12 months. This sickened state is what drives smokers back looking for relief, not the “nicotine addiction.” (http://medicolegal.tripod.com/preventbrainda…)
The history of commercial tobacco production in the United States dates back to the 17th century when the first commercial crop was planted. But why do the chemicals in cigarettes have so much more to do with the smoking addiction than nicotine? Most cigarette smokers do not understand it’s the chemicals in cigarettes that wreak havoc in their central nervous system, fueling the need for the short-lived relief nicotine brings.

History proves that the premium brands contain more chemicals than others, and that is why they rule the marketshare, and most of their “loyal smokers” will not even smoke the competition’s brand because the “kick” or “taste” just isn’t the same. What most fail to realize is that this desired kick and taste comes with a very steep price – that being more pesticides, more ammonia, and a richer toxic cocktail that does damage to the lungs and nervous system in the short term.
When a smoker tries to quit by using the pills, the patch, nicotine gum, electronic cigarettes, or even cold turkey, what drives him or her back to smoking isn’t the craving of nicotine, an addiction which is broken within the first 3 to 4 days.
If all cigarette manufacturers today faced strict and thorough inspections and regulations, and had no choice but to eliminate all of the chemicals, the number of cancer cases would be reduced immensely, and the ability to stop smoking without help would be reasonable again.
