Walking down the tobacco-free path can be made easier by adding certain foods to your daily diet. These foods can lower the urge to smoke or wean you off of it.
Milk and Cheese
Milk & Cheese will leave your mouth with a bitter after-taste if had before smoking. Dipping your cigarette in milk and having it once dry will also help.
Vegetables like celery, zucchini, cucumber, eggplant, cauliflower, broccoli, sprouts and cabbage also leave a bitter after-taste in your mouth, when had before smoking.
Ginger will help you overcome nausea, which is a noted symptom of cigarette and nicotine withdrawal.
Cigarettes cause a deficiency of vitamin C in our body. Oranges, lemons, pomegranates, guavas, berries and sliced tomatoes are loaded with vitamin C and can thus reduce the drive to smoke.
