1. Taking 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda 3 times a day will help you quit smoking. The soda neutralizes the body acids, retains nicotine in the blood, and thus reduces the desire for tobacco.
2. Eat plenty of fresh lemons and lemon juice to reduce your desire for cigarettes. Eating lots of salads and other fruits will also help. Avoid meat and alcohol.
3. To avoid irritability: take 1 tryptophan (667 mg.) tablet 3 times a day, plus 1 Vitamin B complex (100 mg., time release) with your evening meal.
4. Before breakfast, take 1/2 teaspoon each of Rochelle Salts and Cream of Tartar.
5. Try chewing Ginseng Root; swallow the juice.
6. Don't keep cigarettes by your bed. When you wake up, breathe deeply and brush your teeth right away.
