Seventy percent of American smokers want to quit
by S. D. Wells
(NaturalNews) Outside the office buildings they huddle in the cold. Away from the dinner parties they're "isolated" and some of them ashamed of themselves for still being engulfed by the habit. Like outcasts, the pariahs gather and inhale -- hold -- exhale 7,000 chemicals through a long white tube of paper full of tobacco and loaded with a short-term stimulant -- the second most addictive kind on the planet. "Gluttons for punishment" -- the non-smokers may call them. They know what they're doing to their bodies. So where's the sympathy for the plight, the blight, the horror of not being able to quit something you want to very badly? Where are the non-smokers who empathize? Where are the nutritionists now, to scream at them, that nutrition is the key to longevity, or at this point, has everyone just given up?
Research blames income levels for a high correlation of smokers of commercial cigarettes, meaning possibly that the poor are more stressed out, visit bars more often and drink more alcohol in general. It's true that there is a convenient store, a liquor store, a pawn shop, a bar or a tobacco shop on just about every corner in bustling urban areas.
Does America feed "the fix"? You bet "they" do. Big Tobacco wants all the customers-for-life it can get, and it doesn't care if they're kids, teens, new parents, pregnant women or the elderly. Big Tobacco doesn't care if you're white or black, poor or rich. Big Tobacco certainly doesn't care what political affiliation you have, but they do care about which cancer hospital you check into. That's just more money to fuel their investment in you, the pariah.
Only 5 percent of smokers who try to quit will succeed - that's a lieIf you look at statistics, you will find that most cessation programs yield dismal results: under 5 percent. That may be true for the scams, because that's the way they were designed. Think about it, if you went to gamble in Las Vegas or Atlantic City, and they didn't let you win a little bit, you would leave and never come back. Small wins are a gambit (trade-off) for huge losses, and THAT is a given. Same goes for medications, the nicotine patch and even nicotine gum. People who use these methods usually return to smoking within six months. They can't win for losing.
So then what's the solution? What "quitting" program yields phenomenal results and gets more than 5 percent of smokers off those dreaded cancer sticks? Electronic cigarette, or "e-cig," vapor yields up to 60 percent success. People who switch eliminate more than 6,000 chemicals, including pesticides, insecticides, bleach and ammonia. No, e-cigs are not a cessation "program," but they're helping millions of smokers get off cigarettes. Sorry, Big Tobacco, you're losing 6 out of 10 customers "of death" to the little portable hookahs, and many of those who switch end up weaning themselves off the nicotine faster and easier than ever before. Then, insert nutrition and it's ALL OVER, just like that!
Maca, coconut oil and kale - three secrets to remaining a non-smoker for lifeMost people have never even heard the name of, much less consumed, one superfood supplement known as maca. Grown high up in the Andes Mountains of Peru, maca powder is packed with proteins, tannins and complex alkaloids. This is highly recommended when trying to quit cigarettes. Coconut oil is loaded with omega-3s, and a recent study proved that smokers are so depleted of omega-3s and overloaded with omega-6s, they don't recover unless they supplement, but when they do supplement, they kill the cravings.
Kale is far more nutritious than other leafy greens. Kale is anti-inflammatory, loaded with iron, calcium, fiber and, yes, protein! Kale contains essential omega fatty acids. Kale builds immunity to superbugs and bacteria and is a rich source of flavanoid antioxidants. You don't have to be a "castaway" anymore. There's a course that includes chemical knowledge, behavior modification and nutrition. It's called 14AndOut. Stop smoking naturally in 14 days or less. The road to health freedom is paved in front of you like a yellow brick road. Follow it.
