Quitting cigarettes can be a challenging task that may require several attempts. There is no “right” way to quit smoking cigarettes but there are several methods that work. A simple method to help reduce your nicotine intake and eventually help you stop smoking all together is the use of lollipops!
The first step is to order a case of lollipops in your favorite flavors! Gourmet lollipops such as Yummy Lix from Cima Confections come in a wide variety of flavors, such as watermelon, sour apple, banana split, cherry cheesecake, cotton candy, and wild berries. For fun, you can order special shapes of Yummy Lix such as Merry Pops or Lolliween lollipops with skulls and ghosts to help keep you focused on your goal.
One advantage of using lollipops is that they keep your mouth and hand busy, much like a cigarette. It takes a while to consume a lollipop, which also means a slow release of sugar that keeps down nervous energy. Yummy Lix gourmet lollipops are only 120 calories.
The next step is to keep lollipops handy so you can start introducing them into your routine. The best time to start is after a meal. Instead of lighting up, pop in a lollipop. Keep sucking on it to reduce your cravings. As you gradually introduce lollipops in lieu of cigarettes, you will reduce your nicotine levels.
After a couple of weeks, start introducing lollipops in place of other smoking triggers: the break at work, the drive home, the bedtime smoke. Don’t worry, you can still keep the morning coffee and bedtime cigarette, for now. Try this gradual substitution for two to three weeks. Feeling better yet?
Along the way, be sure you are getting plenty of sleep and drinking lots of water. It is a good idea to avoid scenarios where you would normally smoke, like bars or sporting events. Go instead to places smoking is banned, like restaurants, museums, libraries, theaters, malls, and churches.
Even if you are still struggling, keep working on breaking your addiction, day by day. The folks at Cima Confections are cheering for you! We know you can do it. And we have plenty of Yummy Lix gourmet Lollipops to keep you on track for a healthier new year. Shop our gourmet lollipops now!
