Trying to Quit Cigarette Smoking? Try CBD Oil

Trying to quit smoking? Having a hard time? CBD Oil might be JUST what you need!

In a blind study, 24 smokers were given 800 mg oral CBD Oil or a placebo, and the conclusions from the final study were that those given the CBD Oil reduced their smoking rates by up to 40%. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23685330

CBD Oil has been tested with active smokers for:

  • Reducing cravings
  • Reducing withdrawal symptoms
  • Reducing smoking cues

There needs to be a lot more testing but with the small amount already done, it looks very promising! One thing that is EXCITING to me is that the drugs people take to stop smoking have side-effects…and bad ones at that! A friend of mine passed out while driving from the drug he was taking to stop smoking, and nearly killed himself. That won’t happen with CBD Oil!

Smoking is a horrible habit. Horrible for the person smoking and for those who have to endure the second hand smoke. It costs so much money and you get NOTHING for it. My mother-in-law started smoking when she was 9 years old! By the time she was a young woman, she was smoking 3 packs a day. She died of COPD (and so did my father-in-law). Several years before she died, she actually quit smoking….but it was too late.

Don’t delay! I know it is hard to quit, but God will help you, if you only ask Him to. But remember, He helps those who help themselves. Do all you can on your own.

One thing that helps many people, is to quit drinking coffee. Caffeine and Nicotine go hand in hand. Think about it….you sit down to have a cup of coffee and a cigarette, right? So if you quit the coffee first, it will be much easier to kick the smoking habit. Caffeine is a HORRIBLE drug…I’ll save that for another BLOG laugh

We also have another thing that some people have used with good success to stop smoking. Have you ever heard of Cinnamon or Tea Tree Oil TOOTHPICKS? They come 100 to a box…and they help with the habit of having to hold something in your fingers or in your mouth. They taste good, give you good smelling breath and they help with the physical habit of holding something in our fingers or between your lips.
