9. Ginger

This root spice is also very good at curbing the urge to smoke. Grind a fresh piece of organic ginger, and mix it with a bit of sugar. Eating this often stops people from feeling the urge to smoke.


10. Crunchy Foods

Years of smoking will dull your taste buds, so when you quit you will find that you suddenly have this new appreciation of food. Don’t, however, eat empty calories that will make you gain that “smokers 15”, choose crunchy foods that are healthy such as carrots, nuts, apples, and grapes.

11. Try some super foods

Some of these are known to fight the cravings for tobacco and they are great at restoring the damage that has been done to your body. Try maca and macuna. Or avocados or dandelion tea. It might take you a bit of experimenting before you find out what works for you, but there is probably a super food that will take away most, if not all, of your cravings,


12. Salty foods

As we mentioned before, eating a lot of salty foods often takes away the cravings for many smokers. Try to avoid empty calorie foods like potato chips and pretzels, instead, try putting salt on a half of a lime or lemon and suck on it, or add a pinch of salt to apple slices or celery.

We also want to mention here a few of the foods that you should avoid when you are trying to quit smoking such as:

  • Sugary foods
  • Alcohol
  • Junk food
  • Overly spicy foods
  • Sodas

Also, avoid any food that is a trigger for you to smoke. For example, many smokers enjoy a cigarette with their morning cup of coffee. If drinking coffee drives you crazy with the desire to smoke, try drinking some green tea instead, or have a morning smoothie. You can always go back to coffee later once you are sure you have kicked the habit, but in the meantime, avoid all trigger foods.

Good luck friend!
