Methods to quit smoking naturally
Quitting smoking is a wise decision, but how can you quit smoking using natural methods to effectively get rid of this addiction to tobacco and not gain weight?
The two battles to be fought are :
- The feeling of dependence: the more or less strong desire to smoke a cigarette
- the nervousness linked to withdrawal, and the danger of compensating with food, which leads to a real risk of weight gain.
Natural tools exist, but whatever the preferred method, it is strongly advised to respect the prescriptions for use.
