Nicotine 101: The science behind the ADDICTION and QUITTING for good

The science behind the ADDICTION and QUITTING for good

We start this one off with some interesting facts about nicotine and its continued use. There are 35 million smokers in the US, and there are 15 million people who now vape. Though vaping eliminates many of the harmful chemicals embedded in cigarettes, most of the vape gadgets used by vape enthusiasts use “nic juice,” which means they also contain nicotine, the 3rd most addictive drug in the world, following closely behind cocaine and heroin. Cigarettes are also worse than vaping because cigarette tobacco is juiced up (freebased) with ammonia to make the nicotine super strong, so over 100mg of vapor-ready drug gets inhaled, and hits the heart and brain in just three seconds. It gets worse. Nicotine use constricts blood vessels, restricting oxygen and nutrient flow, thus diminishing immune system function.

Then there are the dreaded nicotine patches and nicotine gum, that both have only a 4% success rate at helping people quit smoking or vaping for good, yet somehow, together, those “quit methods” maintain a $5 billion dollar market each, worldwide. The Biden Regime is trying to ban menthol, but not cigarettes, in a head fake move to pretend to be helping black smokers, who prefer menthol 3 out of 4 smokers. They’ll just switch to non-menthol or there will be a black market created for menthol (no pun intended). But wait, there’s some good news.

True physical nicotine addiction is broken in just 3 to 4 days, after that, it’s all just mental and behavioral modifications

The famous author Mark Twain once wrote, “Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I’ve done it thousands of times.” That’s why the nicotine patch and gum manufacturers make so much money, because people keep using them for years, unable to quit, but repeatedly trying to. Every nicotine user has a different experience during their withdrawal days, and people chain smokers may have even more “intense” periods. It all depends on three key factors: Overall health, mindset, and nutrition.

The problem with the patch and gum is they PROLONG the nicotine withdrawal phase because they still contain nicotine, even if it’s less than what is in a cigarette or typical vape gadget (electronic cigarette).

Dopamine is a neurochemical that is highly influenced by nicotine, fueling mood enhancement and emotional “reward.” That’s why it’s easy to become depressed and stressed while trying to quit, because normal dopamine levels are not reached without the nicotine delivery device doing the “trick” for you. The problem is this artificial, drug-induced dopamine surge is very short-lived, only lasting between 20 to 40 minutes, then it fades quickly. Over time, tolerance to nicotine is built up while natural reservoirs of the neurotransmitter dopamine are depleted. How can you replenish this without continued nicotine use? That is a scientific question with a clean cut answer.

Baylor College of Medicine study revealed the main reason smokers relapse after quitting is due to low dopamine levels

Researchers from Baylor College of Medicine in Texas ran an in-depth study on the effects of dopamine levels caused by nicotine use and how those levels adjust during nicotine withdrawal. The clinical study was published in Biological Psychiatry (medical journal) and reveals that low dopamine levels are the number one factor that actually PROMOTE the relapse to smoking. The researchers discovered that dopamine levels become ABNORMAL when smokers try to stop smoking (or vaping).

Nicotine use literally ‘hijacks the reward system’ in the human body and brain, commented a doctor who edits the psychology journal, saying the low levels of dopamine during withdrawal trigger the pursuit of abused substances. So then, how do you cure low dopamine production in the body without using nicotine?

Drawing from the conclusions of the Baylor Medical College study on dopamine levels being the main cause of nicotine relapse, it only makes sense to find a natural remedy that can boost dopamine levels, and avoid nicotine altogether. That’s what we do at Natural News, we research and investigate natural remedies and indigenous cures for everything under the sun.

All natural Krave Kicker, a “shot” beverage made with supplements and superfoods, is a great tool on the belt for quitting naturally, without using “lesser” drugs, or prescription drugs, or anything else with horrific side effects and continued addictions. Natural remedies are always a wise choice, and boosting dopamine levels has been proven by scientific research and analysis to be very effective for ending nicotine addiction for good.

How the nicotine gum and patch are SCAMS created and marketed by Big Pharma to keep you HOOKED on a deadly drug

Don't Eat Cancer

Complaints are plastered all over reviews, blogs and comment boards about how nicotine gum leaves you with a bad taste, mouth burn and nausea. Even brands that brag about having decent flavor get the same negative reviews. Then there are thegrim statisticsfor the gum and the patch to help people actually quit smoking or vaping, coming in at a low 6 percent (that’s a 94 percent failure rate), and after six months, that figure gets cut in half (that becomes a 97 percent failure rate). That boils down to only 3 percent of all nicotine patch and gum consumers ever really successfully using these products as a quit method.

So then the question looms, why do they keep buying them? Let’s take a look. The nicotine patch market globally is worth over $6 billion dollars, and the nicotine gum market another $5 billion. The reason hundreds of millions…

Nicotine drains willpower – so it’s time to kick those “nic fits” naturally and get in shape for Spring and Summer

Over one billion people smoke cigarettes daily, and that’s nearly 1 in every 5 people. Four out of five of those smokers are men. Plus, more than 55 million people vape, and although vaping involves fewer toxins than those nasty cancer sticks, nearly everyone who vapes is still ingesting nicotine, the world’s third-most-addictive drug. Nicotine is brutal punishment for the body over time, and causes systemic damage, as it constricts veins and capillaries, thus limiting the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to vital parts of the body (also increasing risk and severity of Covid by compromising immune function). Got limited endurance? That’s the nicotine. Out of breath frequently, even when you’re not smoking or vaping? That’s the aftermath of nicotine’s chronic damage.

If you’ve tried the nicotine patch or the nicotine gum as a quit method and it failed you miserably, that’s because both still contain nicotine. Why would you try to quit something so addictive by doing more of it? It doesn’t make sense. Keep reading for a different idea.

Are you tired of “nicotine alternatives” that still contain nicotine?

Do you know who manufactures and sells the nicotine patches and gum? Big pharma. Yes, that’s because they know they don’t work to help you quit. Whether you’re trying to kick the habit quickly or over time, less than three percent of people who use patches and/or gum ever quit, because even 4 milligrams of nicotine is enough to keep you addicted, wanting more and more, until you’re back to smoking a pack or two a day, or vaping every 10 to 15 minutes. Would you try to quit an alcohol addiction by sipping on “weak” beer or wine all day? Of course not.

Even exposure to second-hand smoke or exhaled nicotine causes damage to the “non-users.” Nicotine constricts blood vessels, including the ones in your skin. This reduces your blood flow and fingertip skin temperature, causing blood vessels to get even more narrow. Over time, these blood vessels lose flexibility and become stiff. Now imagine what’s happening throughout your body.

The companies selling the nicotine-loaded patch and gum know this. They know your organs and your cells are also depleted of oxygen and nutrients. In turn, your heart rate increases, as well as the size of your heart, in order to meet the need for more oxygen. At this increased rate, less elastic blood vessels make the heart work even harder to pump blood. Nicotine therefore changes the function and structure of your entire oxygen and nutrient delivery system. Wonder why you’re not motivated to exercise, and can’t last very long when you try? Quit wondering, and do something about it.

Drop the nicotine patch, the pills and the nicotine gum, and go natural and clean

Zero nicotine, zero cravings. That’s what a revolutionary new product delivers for nicotine users who want the next step in the evolution of cleaner choices for kicking nicotine cravings. A couple of entrepreneurs invented Krave Kicker, the evolution of nicotine “alternatives” that contains zero nicotine and actually works. Based on peer-reviewed science and clinical research, the superfoods and supplements in this product blend provide a natural dopamine boost without any punishing drugs, chemicals, sugar or artificial sweeteners. It’s the reward the body wants, and it’s a mood elevator that motivates nicotine users to actually exercise, without getting tired so fast.

Like no other product on the market, Krave Kicker offers a clean alternative to nicotine and effective, natural relief from nicotine cravings for hours on end.

Tune your internet dial to and find out more ways to kick nicotine for good and recapture that fountain of youth you enjoyed before you got all wrapped up in the nic fix. You can do it. Spring and Summer are right around the corner. Now is the time to kick those cravings naturally. It’s time to reclaim your brain health, lung health, memory, focus, motivation, circulation, taste and sense of smell. This has been a public service announcement from Natural Health News.

Smoke or Vape? Nicotine use lowers immunity, so there’s no better time to QUIT than right now, during the coronavirus pandemic

girl smokes

Right now, there are 35 million smokers and 15 million vape enthusiasts in the United States alone who are dependent on the world’s third-most addictive drug every hour of every day. At least half have tried to quit, but nicotine drags them back in like an undertow in the ocean after a hurricane. Even though the actual physical nicotine addiction can be broken in just three to four days, the habit, with all its rituals, is one of the toughest chains to break in this world. But then, coronavirus.

COVID-19 is wiping out mainly humans with compromised immune systems. This includes people fighting cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and yes, nicotine. It’s not just the elderly dying, but people who already have chronic respiratory issues, diseases and disorders, including emphysema, asthma and COPD.

Nicotine is a destructive force that slowly dismantles the entire immune system while turning average sicknesses deadly, with no discrimination for age, gender, race or religion. Here’s what nicotine does to set people up for deadly encounters with the “novel” coronavirus:

  • Nicotine can turn the body’s immune system against its own cells
  • Higher risk of respiratory infections
  • Prolonged illnesses
  • Autoimmune response can literally attack your own lung tissue
  • More frequent infections
  • Fewer available antioxidants

The time to end nicotine addiction is now, before COVID-19 ends your addiction by ending YOU

Did you know that 60 percent of smokers who switch to vaping never return to cancer sticks again? That’s why the FDA is trying to outlaw vaping, because they’ve always been “in bed” with Big Tobacco. Why do you think it’s legal to put bleach, formaldehyde, ammonia and pesticide in commercial cigarettes? It’s all about the money.

Did you know that vaping cuts out all the chemicals from cigarettes, but still keeps people addicted to a drug that constricts their blood vessels, debilitating the immune system and wiping out nutrition levels in the body? If you smoke or vape or know someone who does, you may be able to help them immensely, and in a very simple way they will appreciate for the rest of their lives.

Smokers and vape enthusiasts need help, though they are very reluctant to admit it. Natural remedies have been around for centuries, even millennia, but here in America, it’s all hush hush. There’s a tropical bean that’s ground up and put into supplements, and it’s called mucuna. This amazing herbal adaptogen is a natural “superfood” and it helps boost dopamine levels, without drugs or chemicals.

The mucuna is combined with high quality vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin), and it comes in a new liquid “shot” that’s sold by the singles in convenience stores in Virginia and nationally by the case online. It’s called Krave Kicker and it’s a cutting-edge product that’s gaining momentum fast in the healthy beverage industry.

Get off nicotine and recapture your immunity, before coronavirus finds you

Here at Natural News, our mission is to spread the word about indigenous cures, natural remedies, herbal tinctures, superfoods, vitamins, minerals, clean food, clean water, and unadulterated medicine. There’s peer-reviewed research behind mucuna and its ability to safely raise dopamine levels, and there’s clinical research showing smokers notoriously suffer from low dopamine levels due to their dependency on nicotine.

In a clinical study at Baylor Medical College in Texas, researchers discovered low dopamine levels are the main reason smokers relapse when trying to quit, because dopamine is released when smoking due to the drug nicotineOver time, the addiction hijacks your motivation and reward system. So what can you do about it?

Now is the time to take advantage of a simple way to remedy that situation. Tell your friends, coworkers, neighbors and relatives about an amazing beverage invention that kicks nicotine cravings naturally, so everyone has more than just a “fighting chance” against COVID-19.

Let’s beat it down so we don’t have to worry about it anymore. Tune your internet dial to and make a few lifestyle changes that promote longevity, happiness and a natural way of life. Enjoy the journey. This has been a public service announcement.

Kick nicotine NATURALLY by combining the right kind of vitamin B12 with a natural dopamine boost now found in liquid “shots”

girl smokes

Buy the Krave Kicker liquid shots here!

Thousands of smokers have quit cold turkey around the world, and just like that, they never smoked another cigarette again. Some people used the patch or the pills, and voila, they were done for good. Other people know how to quit very well because they’ve quit dozens of times, meaning they didn’t quit, but why? Science reveals most smokers relapse because they don’t have a nicotine substitute that serves to boost their dopamine levels during withdrawal. Scientific research published in the British Medical Journal also reveals that certain natural remedies have proven to be effective in clinical studies, including high quality mucuna pruriens, and the right kind of vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin).

Balance your central nervous system while quitting nicotine, and boost your dopamine naturally to kick nicotine 

Be sure, first off, NOT to buy vitamin B12 as cyanocobalamin. It’s not natural and a very poor choice, because only a small amount can be absorbed by the human body, and because it’s a cheap, synthetic lab-made version of B12. Instead look for vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin for increased absorption and superior retention. This will help balance the CNS (central nervous system) during anxious, nervous, stressed or depressed times. This is worth considering very carefully.

Also, your dopamine production heavily relies on the world’s third-most-addicting drug for stimulation, and without nicotine, your body produces much less dopamine than the “average” person who doesn’t smoke. This is the hardest part for smokers to deal with, especially during the first two weeks.

That’s when, if they only knew, smokers would check into buying one of the world’s most amazing herbal adaptogens, mucuna. Mucuna safely raises dopamine levels naturally (as long as you’re not pregnant or nursing, which smoking would be a dumb idea then anyway). This is the secret of longevity – knowing the right superfoods and herbal remedies to fuel the fire of life.

That means mucuna is ideal for feeling that same effect you get from a cigarette – that pep or relaxation (depending on how big of drags you take off the cigarette, or the concentration of milligrams in the nicotine in that cancer stick or vape vapor). Yes, all you vape enthusiasts, we just threw you under the bus with the smokers. There’s good news on the horizon though.

So back to the vitamin B12 now, which helps you maintain healthy nerve cells and it helps you synthesize DNA. If you’re deficient in vitamin B12, you could be suffering from a laundry list of health maladies. Did you know that vitamin B-12 deficiency is shockingly widespread? Here are some of the most common symptoms of deficiency. Any of these sound familiar? Check it out:

* Confusion, memory loss, dementia
* Coldness, numbness or tingling in hands and feet
* Slow reflexes or diminished nervous system function
* Pale skin or yellowing of the skin
* Sore mouth and tongue

* Chest pain or shortness of breath
* Fatigue or unexplained weakness
* Dizziness, trouble with balance, fainting

New supplement beverage invention has a proprietary blend of mucuna pruriens with vitamin B12 to help break the nicotine chain

Are you one of the 35 million Americans who smokes cigarettes? Or, are you one of the 10 million Americans who switched to vape? You’re better off now, if you did, but you’re still addicted to nicotine, and that constricts blood vessels and thus damages your circulatory system. You can try to quit cold turkey, or wean yourself off the nicotine, but you may need help with your dopamine levels and balancing your nerves. Your dopamine levels are severely compromised, and your nerves are shot thanks to nicotine and the other chemicals that come with those nicotine habits.

There’s a supplement beverage for people in that exact situation, and it’s all natural and effective. The inventor is a published health author, and that invention is called Krave Kicker. Now, thanks to this supplement beverage that comes in a convenient 2.5 ounce liquid “shot,” people trying to kick the nicotine habit may have the most handy and reliable method yet, to help them along their journey for health and happiness.

Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, once wrote: “One of the pitfalls of pursuing a healthy diet is that we are sometimes blind to nutrients we may be missing. And in the world of healthy eating, one of the most common nutrient deficiencies involves vitamin B-12, a crucial nutrient for nerve health and the construction of red blood cells that carry oxygen throughout your body.”

Tune your internet dial to and find out how organic tobacco is also an amazing way to stop smoking and “tune out” the nicotine from your life. You can do this! This has been a public service announcement from Natural Health News.
