The greatest fear of quitting smoking is the fear of the feelings of anxiety, depression and overall "crankiness" from the withdrawals of nicotine. Any smoker who has tried to quit in the past knows that this is a very tough period to go through, especially if stressful events happen on top of it all.
The fear of that anxiety and nervousness "never ending" can last for hours, days and even weeks, seemingly having no "light at the end of the tunnel" and sending the new "non-smoker" back to the well. And that's it. Once you smoke ONE cigarette, you get dragged back into the habit like a strong undertow in the ocean, and before you know it, you're right back to smoking a pack a day, or two packs a day, or was it three?
A man once told me that he couldn't quit smoking because his wife would find out. I said, you mean, she doesn't know that you started back up again? He said yes, and when he quits, he gets really cranky, and that she would know that he had started smoking again. I thought that was the most ridiculous reason I had ever heard for someone not wanting to quit, but it's true. So what is the solution? What is the "missing link" that, if smokers all knew about and really put to use, would have the highest success ratio of any program in the world for getting smokers over that hump, those first 14 days basically, when the anxiety and nervousness otherwise "kicks in"?
The missing link - nutrition and herbsThe reason why nearly all cessation (stop smoking) programs fail for about 95% of people who try them is because they do not address nutrient deficiency and the problems that smokers' central nervous systems face when they stop smoking ammonia-laden nicotine. You see, Big Tobacco uses ammonia to freebase nicotine so that every cigarette delivers about 100 milligrams of nicotine power, and that quells the anxiety and nervousness that is bred by smoking 4,000 chemicals, including herbicide, pesticide, insecticide and bleach. Also, the nicotine patch only delivers about 3 to 4 milligrams an hour, steadily, throughout the day. Nicotine gum is even weaker than the patch. These "cessation" choices are nothing close to calming the nerves. They are not helping you balance your central nervous system or replenish your nutrient base. Now you know why they call it chain smoking -- nicotine is just aspirin for the chemical hangover you get from EVERY cigarette.
Hypnosis doesn't offer nutritional advice or supplements either, and the CDC certainly does not inform you in any way of the power of certain organic foods and herbs that quell the anxiety, fight depression and raise dopamine levels naturally. The CDC's scary commercials and warnings on cigarette packs do nothing more than spark conversation; they don't help smokers quit the third-strongest addiction in the world. For most people, it's not just psychological. For the ultimate feat of quitting cigarettes for good -- people want some guidance.
End anxiety and fuel good feelingsMucuna is a natural remedy and a tropical legume. It is made into a food "supplement" by grinding up the beans after removing the "velvety" outer coating. It's a beautiful bean that's native to Asia and Africa and has a wide range of medicinal properties. By safely and naturally enhancing dopamine levels, people do not feel irritated and desperate to light up, but rather they feel happy and "removed" from the want of lighting up.

David Wolfe speaking on the safety of Mucuna:
When you kill the "urge," you cut the habit, and the rest is mind control and nutrition. The nicotine addiction is broken in three to four days, but it takes about two weeks to rid yourself of the 4,000 chemicals still leaching minerals from your body. This is also why it is important to supplement with an organic multivitamin mineral complex, really ramping up the fortification process as the first 14 days pass. Vitamin B is good for balancing the central nervous system, but it needs to be organic, possibly with niacin too. Check with your nutritionist. Did you know that organic chocolate fights depression? Imagine if you took action and did all of this? Whom do you know who smokes and would love to quit?
Also, L-tyrosine is an amino acid that fights depression, cures anxiety and cures chronic fatigue! Some smokers mistake depression for detoxification. It is vital to refortify nutrients throughout the body while quitting smoking. Garlic cloves and oil of oregano are also natural remedies to be considered here. The natural method called 14AndOut not only teaches the smoker about the physiological effects from the chemicals engineered into commercial cigarettes, but 14AndOut also introduces excellent behavior modification to replace and replenish bad habits with good ones. That is how nutrition is infused into the equation and the smoker is rescued from anxiety, nervousness, crankiness and, in the end, the habit that was removing 10 to 20 years from their life.
Kill the urge and you cut the habitThe Health Ranger presents the trailer to the all-natural program (empowerment video) recommended by nutritionists and naturopaths. 14AndOut is also available in paperback and on kindle. (http://premium.naturalnews.tv)
