How To Quit Smoking – Understand Exactly What Your Cravings Are

One of the major stumbling blocks to quitting smoking is dealing with the withdrawal cravings. I want to make a bold statement and declare that I don’t believe in these cravings and I’ll tell you why.

The typical cravings reported are feeling moody or angry, headaches, lack of concentration, shaky hands and a empty gnawing feeling in the chest and stomach.

I’ve seen tough sports people buckle before these feelings and leap at the closest cigarette. But, these feelings may not be nicotine withdrawal symptoms.

It is true that a small percentage of people experience strong nicotine withdrawal discomfort, but the vast majority of smokers, perhaps as high as 97% do not.

The symptoms they experience are something completely different, and when the cigarette companies realised this, decades ago the rubbed their hands together in glee, perhaps with an evil laugh attached.

Tobacco has long been preserved in a concentration of approximately 18% sugar. Every puff you take delivers a small sugar hit, and contributes to an artificially elevated blood sugar.

Have you ever seen a child you comes home from school, hungry after burning all the fuel they consumed at lunch? If you tell them to wait until diner, they go nuts, their behaviour is terrible.

But if you give them an after school snack, they settle down. Why? Because their blood sugar is regulated by the snack.

As a smoker you have been using cigarettes to balance your blood sugar, and you didn’t even know you were doing it.

When you quit, you suffer low blood which is mistaken for nicotine withdrawal. Many people start eating sweet foods in an effort to feel better. The problem is that it works, so the response is to keep eating.

Once you understand this simple fact you can take control of your sugar cravings. Hypnosis will take care of all the emotional smoking connections and apples will solve the rest.

Apples help because they deliver the fruit sugar needed to balance blood sugar. The fibre in the apple peel binds with the fruit sugar and delivers a slow stream of energy into your blood stream.

The simple apple could be your blood sugar saviour plus they will stop you from gaining weight. The hypnosis will make it as easy as possible. This simple knowledge will offer you the easiest way to quit smoking forever, without the painful cravings most people suffer through.
