Most smokers know it is difficult to simply put down their cigarettes and lighter and walk away. It is much more complex than that: nicotine addiction is physical, and smoking is behavioral. However, breaking the cycle is possible, and it’s even possible to quit smoking naturally.
Physical and behavioral addiction to smoking
Herbs to support quitting for good
- Valerian is a powerful relaxant, which in low doses aids in reducing anxiety, stress, and nervousness.
- St. John’s Wort has mild antidepressant properties, with fewer side effects than prescription medications.
