Using natural herbs to quit smoking significantly increases your odds of successfully quitting. In fact, quitting by the Numbers can be quite a bit intimidating. Chances are, if you white-knuckling a smoking fix, you're bound to fail more than nine times out of ten. The good news is that many of these herbs have been used for centuries to help people quit the habit. And some of the Chinese addiction remedy guggul, even work as well as nicotine replacement therapies.

Guggul is a Chinese addiction remedy that has been used for centuries. It is a combination of herbs including ginseng, licorice root, damiana leaf, motherwort and damiana leaf. In addition to the unique blend of herbs, it also includes ginkgo biloba, ginkgo biloba, ginseng and red raspberry leaf to assist in the smoking cessation process. This powerful blend works to lower stress levels and anxiety and is also an effective anxiety reduction therapy. A very interesting side note about this herb - it is often combined with another herb called shatavari to help treat anxiety and other disorders.


Another chewing tobacco alternative and the top herbal quit smoking remedies on the market is made from hemp and has been found to be just as effective as the above-mentioned herbs, but it's also cheap. CBD or" Cannabidiol" is the ingredient you've probably heard about a lot. And now, it's available in a vaporizer that you simply put in your mouth. It's completely safe and all legal and probably heard of as" Hemp Gold".

A new product that's becoming quite popular is called "Butterbar", which is an all-natural alternative to cigarettes and is something called "Tobacco Alternatives". These products or CBD chew alternatives are derived from organic sources like hemp and come in several different flavors, with some being menthol-flavored and others being more subtle and fruity. It is interesting to note that many of the "tobacco alternatives" currently on the market are derived from pharmaceuticals, which are quite possibly doing more harm than good for many people.

Passionflower Extracts

For yet another great way to quit smoking, there are quite a few products on the market that have lobelia and passionflower extracts mixed into them. Lobelia and passion flowers have been used for years in Europe to quit smoking because they are well known to effectively reduce cravings for nicotine. Now, these may not seem all that natural, but that is because they are not available over the counter in the US. Lobelia can be found in several herbal remedy stores and most drug stores carry the passionflower products as well.

Finally, for something truly novel and easy to use, you can try a nicotine gum and patch hybrid that have a combination of nicotine gum and a small amount of a type of electronic transdermal patch placed on the skin. This is a great system that really deserves some more investigation, but in the meantime, it is a very simple way to quit smoking without having to deal with some of the problems associated with patches and nicotine gum. I have personally tried this and I must say it worked for me, though I am not a smoker; I am just someone who likes to enjoy the taste of coffee on its own without having to smoke it.
