They say if you’re lost in a maze, don’t panic, just put one hand against the wall and you lead yourself right out of the labyrinth. Yet, most people addicted to nicotine don’t even believe they could survive daily life without it. And why is that? They’re lost in a maze. A haze of doubt and uncertainty, brought on by constantly recurring “hangovers” from using the third most addictive drug in the world.
So, as it goes, nearly every nicotine addict says they’re going to quit, they want to quit, or they already quit, but for some reason, they just keep feeding the fix. That reason would mainly be low dopamine levels in their body regularly, except when the nicotine reaches their heart and brain 3 seconds after a drag of smoke or vape.
Once those dopamine levels get compromised by the artificial, repetitive boost from nicotine, it’s hard for users to feel decent or get excited about anything without a hit. Then, if they get stressed out about something (which is pretty easy at that point), they simply “need” some nic hits, and they’re as serious as a heart attack when they say it. People who smoke never say “I’m going to have a cigarette” they say, “I need a cigarette.”
That’s why they can’t quit. Or at least, that’s why they think they can’t. They always feel stressed and they would need to somehow get excited about quitting, but how in the world could they do that? They simply don’t know, and that’s when the top 10 excuses come into play.
Top 10 excuses for being “stuck” in the “nic-fix” vicious cycle
#1. “I’m gonna quit, but not right now, because I have too much going on, and I’m kind of stressed out.”
#2. “I started out smoking or vaping just once in a while, like at a bar, and somehow it became a pack (or two) a day, or vaping every half hour.”
#3. “I want to quit and I’ve tried to quit many times, but nothing works.”
#4. “I don’t smoke or vape that often, just when I’m drinking or stressed.”
#5. “I switched to vaping, so it’s not that bad.”
#6. “I only smoke natural tobacco brands.”
#7. “I’ve cut way back lately.”
#8. “When I quit, I’ll do it cold turkey. I don’t need help.”
#9. “I’ll let you know when I’m ready to quit.”
#10. “I’ve already quit many times.”
One of the hardest parts of quitting nicotine is the mental part
It’s true that most of quitting is in your head, and that’s why the “Easy Way” book sold millions of copies across the world in dozens of different languages, years ago. About 70 percent of the nicotine addiction is in your head, especially after the first four days, when the true physical addiction wears off.
Allen Carr taught millions of people how to extinguish those mental demons and be a happy non-smoker for the rest of their life. What a genius. He even helps people get free from other addictions, like over-eating, alcohol and drugs. Still, some people need physical help, from supplements to behavior modifications. We’ve got answers for those too. Finish reading.
Most people who indulge nicotine daily suffer from CNS imbalances (central nervous system), long-term dull depression, sleeping problems or disorders, and nervous hypertension. This all stems from lack of nutrients, including vitamins and minerals.
Let’s get physical and really quit for good
First order of business, for these folks to drop the nicotine fix, is to get the right kind of vitamin B-12 (as methylcobalamin) and a natural dopamine boost (from mucuna pruriens). Who knew there’s a new supplement beverage invention, called Krave Kicker, that delivers BOTH in a 2.5 ounce liquid “shot” that lasts for hours, and it’s all natural. Plus the superfood mucuna is backed by solid science. This is worth considering for the physical aspect of quitting, in addition to Allan Carr’s paperback book for the mental part.
