The Secret Sweet Craving (That Helps You Stop Smoking!)

I wanna get right to the point.

Most New Non Smokers…That’s you if not now then soon :)!

Tell you they crave sweets when they quit smoking.

Which is true for the most part…

But there is actually one sweet craving that can help you.

You may actually crave it (and not even now why).

It Licorice…


Yes Really…

Stay with me on this….

Here’s why.

Licorice is in Cigarettes <———————————————————

That’s right is actually used as a flavoring agent in many cigarettes and other tobacco products.  (so trying to get what your missing that makes sense)

Great For Hand to Mouth Syndrome <—————————————

The average smoker is used to putting hand up to their mouth 100’s of times a day.  Chewing or sucking on licorice just helps to have something in your mouth.

Promotes Adrenal Hormones  <——————————————–

These can be helpful in the withdrawal phase when someone quits smoking.

Helps With Cough <———————————————————–

Licorice also acts as an expectorant, which helps clear your lungs. (Gotta love that!)

Reduces Sugar Craving & Blood Glucose <——————————-

Chewing on licorice root can help, since it is sweet and also binds glucose. This effect may help regulate blood sugar levels, preventing cravings resulting from blood sugar swings.

It’s An Appetite Suppressant! <——————————————-

That right.  You already know nicotine kills your appetite but so does Licorice or better yet Licorice Root, also known as “sweet root,” is known for its soothing and strengthening properties in the body. It also regulates blood sugar level this reduces your cravings for sweets.

So if you need to reach for something sweet this might do the trick.
