It may sound ridiculous, but it works. If you smoke to control your weight it doesn’t hurt to try a few things that could actually help you stay healthy.
How to give up this vice depends on the nature of your addiction and the motivation to quit smoking. If smoking is used as an excuse to lose weight, the cigarette can be replaced with a piece of celery.
It sounds ridiculous, but the celery contains valuable nutrients, including vitamins C and K as well as folic acid. Biting it slowly will keep your mouth and hand busy until the cravings for cigarettes will disappear. As a plus, it has zero calories. In the end, you will prevent this habit and dependence without gaining weight.
Nicotine replacement therapy or nicotine chewing gum may sound more appropriate, but it still contains this harmful substance, so you will still have to fight with addiction. Instead, smokers could try hypnotherapy, acupuncture, aromatherapy or homeopathy.
