Tobacco Addiction Solutions

Tobacco addiction is a serious illness that takes strong will power and dedication to conquer. The good news is that there are many herbs and herbal products available that can help the smoker who wants to quit. There are five main ways herbs may be of benefit:

    Herbs to help overcome nicotine cravings.
    Alternative smoking herbs and herbal products.
    Healing herbs for the lungs.
    Detox herbs for the liver and body.
    Nerve tonics.

1. Herbs to help overcome nicotine cravings.
Indian tobacco (Lobelia inflata) contains lobeline, an alkaloid that acts on the same receptors in the brain as nicotine, therefore eliminating the nicotine craving altogether.
Passion flower (Passiflora incarnata) also contains alkaloids that effect the same receptors as nicotine, so may also help eliminate cravings. Both Indian tobacco and Passion flower can be smoked or used as a tea.
Ginseng (Panax ginseng) may stop the brain releasing dopamine when tobacco is smoked, making it less pleasurable and therefore easier to quit.

2. Alternative smoking herbs and herbal products.
These products offer a healthier alternative to tobacco and can be used to lower tobacco consumption and break the tobacco habit. They can also help you too relax and ease tension.
