The human mind is a powerful tool and can be used for accomplishing great things and even things that seem impossible: Unless of course it is being dominated by an outside force–or in this case chemicals–that inhibit our own willpower from quitting what we don’t want to do in the first place.

Smokers yearly suffer from an overwhelming amount of attempts to quit smoking, yet many never seem to succeed: all in the name of Nicotine. Nicotine is the culprit as two chemicals called dopamine and noradrenaline affect the human brain by changing your mood and concentration levels, thus causing an inevitable addiction. Unfortunately, nicotine does reduce stress and anxiety and for that reason alone is why so many smokers utilize it. Since nicotine is used to relax and “get away”, it’s the reason why users of this drug seem to always want to come back to it no matter how many times they call it quits.

While many smokers have failed to quit by the hundreds of thousands of methods that many claim to say succeed, those who are tea lovers are in for a real treat. It’s known that tea has an overabundant amount of health benefits such as boosting the immune system, fighting cancerous disease radicals and so on, but did you know you can utilize tea as replacement therapy to combat smoking addiction to cigarettes?

When a victim of drug abuse needs to overcome an addiction, one can’t simply just let go of said addiction so easily because the chemical state of the brain is so greatly altered; it’s somewhat nearly impossible to quit without the help of an external remedy. Smokers instead need an aid to help assist in kicking the addiction to the curb; in this case, the wonderful leaves of the camellia sinensis plant or “tea” can do just that. What better replacement strategy other than tea!

You can effectively utilize tea as a replacement aid to remedy and overcome cigarette smoking addiction completely without having to spend a fortune. The antioxidants found in tea not only help you relax and reduce stress mentally and physically, tea can detoxify and remove any toxins that are left in the body such as heavy metals and those pesky cravings for tobacco that smoking originally created. Some ex-cigarette smokers even claim that because of tea’s powerful relaxing sensation on the mind, it’s one of the main reasons why the switch from cigarettes to tea just works; having something natural that lets you unwind beats inhaling toxic synthetic chemicals that although help you unwind, also kill 1,300 people daily.

You don’t need to worry about which specific tea to drink although there are recommended teas that are better suited to stopping smoke addictions such as Mimosa tea, jasmine, chamomile, and green tea. It’s crazy to think that the chemicals found in herbs can be used for medicinal purposes instead of harming our bodies by them. The irony of all of this is that in its pure form, tobacco is derived from a plant and so is tea. Instead of being enslaved by an addiction caused by tobacco, replace a bad habit with a good one. Include a daily routine of consuming tea at your desired pace and flavor that will support a positive and healthy life!
