Instructions

  1. 1

    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.

  2. 2

    Put a cinnamon stick in your mouth whenever you have a cigarette craving. Breath in deeply through the cinnamon stick. Exhale again.

  3. 3

    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.

  4. 4

    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.
  • Use a nicotine patch or gum to gradually deal with nicotine addiction and back off slowly while using the cinnamon to deal with the habits.
