Cinnamon is a spice used in a variety of recipes that range from main dishes to desserts. Cinnamon sticks come from a tropical tree. When kept in a cinnamon stick form rather than ground for a spice, it is possible to use the cinnamon stick to help quit smoking. You can use cinnamon sticks to imitate smoking motions without actually smoking.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Cinnamon sticks
- Water (optional)
Keep cinnamon sticks in easy reach. They are only effective if the cinnamon sticks are available and in reach when cravings for cigarettes hit. Keep a small bag or container with cinnamon sticks in your purse, vehicle or pocket.
Put a cinnamon stick in your mouth whenever you have a cigarette craving. Breath in deeply through the cinnamon stick. Exhale again.
Repeat inhaling and exhaling until the craving passes. Move and hold the cinnamon stick like a cigarette. Using the cinnamon stick like this will mimic the use of a cigarette and help you handle the cravings related to habitual smoking.
Drink some water after the craving passes if the taste of cinnamon is too strong.
Tips and warnings
- Avoid lighting the cinnamon. Leave it unlit while inhaling.
