(NaturalNews) Just about anyone who has had "too much to drink" knows about the alcohol hangover, where you have an excruciating headache and your body does NOT want you to do anything that requires energy. The first thing you do when you wake up with a hangover is reach for some water and pain reliever. Millions of smokers worldwide have "found themselves" in a similar, vicious cycle where they pollute their body with 4,000 chemicals, and then wait about 30 to 45 minutes for the hangover to kick in, at which time they go outside and take a "nicotine" aspirin, which means lighting up some commercial-rolled GMO tobacco chock full of ammonia, bleach, pesticide, insecticide, herbicide and carpet glue ("firesafe"), and inhale, hold, then exhale about a dozen times.

Since the cigarette manufacturing "chem-labs" began using ammonia, the nicotine hits the brain and heart within 3 seconds, and the smoker's dopamine levels go up rapidly, providing feelings of elation, relaxation, or pep, depending on the length of the drag (inhale). This immediate relief from the CNS hangover (central nervous system hangover) is almost a must for the pack-a-day smoker to function on a reasonable level. Otherwise, the effect commercial cigarettes have on the body can devastate the average smoker, robbing him or her of natural will, positive emotions, and overall health.

"The cigarette hangover: What's the cure?"

Anyone can buy a pH testing kit (colored strips) and test their own pH for about 10 to 12 dollars. A person's pH can then be easily self-regulated within a few days, sometimes even hours, to be less acidic and more alkaline. A smoker must alkalize the body and stay alkalized to be able to quit with hopes of staying smoke free for good. This means changing eating, drinking, and most of all, supplementing habits.

Since most people cannot quit cold turkey without help, the key to cessation lives in an alkalized body, which is fostered by natural spring water, organic vegetables, and a natural herb that raises the dopamine and serotonin levels in the body, removing the craving of the FEELING that nicotine used to bring them. Even organic dark chocolate has been known to play a role in battling anxiety/depression/withdrawal symptoms that ex-smokers face (http://jn.nutrition.org/content/128/9/1450.full).

Allan Carr's book called the Easy Method does cover the emotional and psychological sides of quitting smoking, but a revolutionary program called 14AndOut ("Stop smoking in 14 days or less") brings nutrition to the FOREFRONT as one of the key components for permanent cessation. No other program addresses this nutrient deficiency and body pH balance as well as 14AndOut, and the instructional video has higher success rates than any other program. The new ex-smoker has to replace the nicotine with something natural that drives dopamine levels up, which ends the cravings (http://premium.naturalnews.tv/14AndOut__TV.htm).

Scams that keep you hooked

Most of the popular cessation programs address one and only one thing - the nicotine, and they're not even doing that right! People don't realize who is actually SELLING the pills, patch and gum. They're all a scam to keep smokers hooked. Nicotine is the third most addicting drug in the world, only slightly less than cocaine and heroin. Many smokers have will power and can quit cold turkey if the time is right or they face a near death experience, but all the rest who try to quit are rarely ever ready to battle the nicotine/dopamine war, and they go back to the well within 6 months. Smoking one cigarette drags the smoker back into a pack a day habit like a bad undertow can drag a person into the ocean after a storm (http://www.healthherbsandnutrition.com/remedies/s/smoking.htm).

The best cure for the cigarette hangover is to never put one's self in harm's way again. By combining behavior modification, knowledge, and nutrition, smokers have more than a "fighting chance" at quitting the habit. They have every tool they need!
