Tea and Quitting Smoking

by Chelsye » Sep 6th, '06, 18:24

Anyone have any tea suggestions for easing the pain of quitting smoking? I have been sticking with herbal teas (can't handle caffeine now that I've quit :shock: ) but I wasn't sure if there was something specific that may help.

Lapsang Souchong. It's a very smokey tea, so I would imagine it would be good for helping quiting smoking. Just do a 30-45 second rinse to get rid of most of the caffeine.

I've heard from a friend who used to smoke that a drop of clove bud essential oil on the tongue is supposed to curb cravings for smoking. Maybe try a drop in your tea? (and it just smells wonderful!)

I disagree with this advice. If you're gonna quit smoking, then quit smoking; don't switch addictions.
