Common treatment for smoking addiction is usually in the form of nicotine replacement or trying to alter your mindset. The problem with these approaches I believe is that they don’t get to the root of addiction which is poor brain chemistry. The approach I recommend is one which helps people to quit smoking naturally by correcting brain chemistry with natural compounds so that nicotine is no longer needed to compensate for this.
Nicotine replacement is what it says, which is replacing the addictive substance in cigarettes. It is an improvement on smoking since at least you are not getting all the other toxic substances in the cigarettes. However you are still reliant on nicotine, nicotine is a toxin in itself, and in the end, when you try to get off it, you will still be suffering from smoking withdrawal problems. Approaches which aim to alter your mindset may have some degree of success but I do not believe they are complete since they too are not correcting what is going wrong with the brain to make you require a drug to feel good.
Many people mistakenly believe that they only have nicotine cravings because they have become addicted to cigarettes. In other words if only they could get through the uncomfortable nicotine withdrawal process they would then stop having cravings for cigarettes. However this is not true. Some people have managed to give up smoking for quite some time and still crave nicotine well past the withdrawal process.
