Quitting any type of addiction, be it alcohol or tobacco requires a lot of will power and desire to quit. The quitting process is not at all welcoming, and as days pass you feel the urge of consuming the substance growing stronger and stronger. With proper support and encouragement from the loved ones this process can be made a bit tolerant but everything is solely based on the addict. My cousin started smoking a year back and for the last few months has been trying his best to quit. He has tried a number of different approaches, but eventually has given up as he becomes so uncomfortable and agitated when he stops smoking. We tried to help him in whatever way we could, but as I said it was totally upto him to hang in there which he failed to. I was recently offered the opportunity to try a couple of quit smoking products from The Quit Company (Based in Greenwich). The first one is called QUIT TEA and the second is called Quit Support. Both these products are designed to be used by individuals who are looking to quit the habit of smoking. What I love the most about these products is that they are purely herbal supplement containing only natural ingredients (no nicotine at all….isn’t it amazing!) The parcel arrived with the products as scheduled on time. It contained 3 boxes of Quit Tea, each box had 20 tea bags which are enough to keep you going for a month (if you drink 2 cups a day) and a bottle of Quit Support, containing 60 herbal capsules. Quit support comes in vegetable cellulose capsules containing a mix of finely ground herbs with main ingredient St John’s wort. This is known for its calming effects on nerves and anxiety. The calming effect is very important part of any drugs that aid in quitting addiction. The packaging of the products intrigued me! I love how each tea bag is sealed in plastic wrap making it easier for you to carry it in your handbag or pocket. The overall packaging felt so full of life with prominent use of green color. I don’t smoke so I was not an ideal candidate to test the efficiency of this product. So, I gave it to my cousin to try it, therefore whatever I am going to share is based on his experience.
- Quit Tea: “I have never in my life tried any herbal tea, so for the first few days I did not like the taste of quit tea and found it very awkwardly strong. It was nearly impossible for me to drink the entire cup without feeling like throwing up. But after few days I developed the liking for the tea, thus I started drinking two cups a day, based on my urge to smoke. The first thing that I noticed was the calming effect it cased on me. Before using this, whenever I tried to quit smoking I became so hyper and agitated which would weaken my willpower, but with quit tea the feeling was not so over powering. I was calm and felt really strong to stick to my decision of quitting.
- Herbal Capsules: ” As mentioned on the bottle I started taking 2 capsules each day, one in morning and one in evening. I did not notice any side effects from the capsules, not experienced upset tummy which is something that happens often whenever I start talking any supplement. It did help me remain cal, like the tea and suppressed my urge to smoke again.”
” I have been using it for 3 weeks now and feel proud to say that I have not smoked ever since. I cannot really comment on long term effectiveness, but I can definitely say it works. I had started smoking just year back so I am someone with extreme case of smoking, so I cannot comment on how it works for people who are masters in the field. As far as beginners are concerned it does work!”
