One of the main obstacles to quitting smoking is dealing with withdrawal cravings. I want to make a bold statement and declare that I don’t believe in these cravings and I’ll tell you why.
Typical reported cravings are feeling grumpy or angry, headaches, poor concentration, shaky hands, and an empty feeling in the chest and stomach.
I have seen tough athletes give in to these feelings and jump to the nearest cigarette. However, these feelings may not be nicotine withdrawal symptoms.
It is true that a small percentage of people experience severe nicotine withdrawal distress, but the vast majority of smokers, perhaps up to 97%, do not.
The symptoms they experience are something else entirely, and when tobacco companies realized this decades ago, they rubbed their hands in glee, perhaps with an evil laugh attached.
Tobacco has been kept for a long time at a concentration of about 18% sugar. Every inhale you take produces a small sugar hit and contributes to an artificially high blood sugar level.
Have you ever seen a child come home from school, hungry after burning all the fuel they consumed for lunch? If you tell them to wait until dinner, they go crazy, their behavior is terrible.
But if you give them a snack after school, they calm down. Why? Because your blood sugar is regulated by your snack.
As a smoker, you’ve been using cigarettes to balance your blood sugar and didn’t even know you were doing it.
When you quit smoking, you experience low blood levels that are mistaken for nicotine withdrawal. Many people start eating sweet foods in an effort to feel better. The problem is that it works, so the answer is to keep eating.
Once you understand this simple fact, you can control your sugar cravings. Hypnosis will take care of all the emotional connections from smoking and apples will solve the rest.
Apples help because they deliver the fruit sugar needed to balance blood sugar. The fiber in the apple peel binds to the sugar in the fruit and delivers a slow flow of energy into the bloodstream.
The plain apple could be your blood sugar flavor and it will also keep you from gaining weight. Hypnosis will make it as easy as possible. This simple knowledge will offer you the easiest way to quit smoking for good, without the painful cravings that most people suffer from.
