How to Stop Smoking Nicotine: The 5-Part Tobacco-Quit Toolkit

Millions of people would love to know how to stop smoking. Dishonest groups love to prey on smokers with promises about bunk methods that don’t work. By now, you probably already know that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

We won’t BS you – quitting nicotine/tobacco is hard to do. Really hard. Don’t listen to anyone who says otherwise.

The cravings aren’t just physical but psychological too. Have you ever noticed the way your mind will play games with you just to have another tobacco cigarette?

I haven’t had one in a week – if I don’t reward myself with one cigarette, I’ll probably end up smoking a pack a day again.

I’ve had thousands of cigarettes – one more won’t kill me, and I’ll stop smoking right after that.

Everyone dies… What am I missing anyway? A couple decades in an old folks’ home?

I’m just an occasional smoker – nothing wrong with a cigarette once in a while.

Your brain is very, very good at saying exactly what you need to hear if it means you can have another tobacco cigarette.

Some nicotine users can simply “white-knuckle” it, also known as going “cold turkey.” If this works for you, we’d love to know your secret. But for all the mere mortals out there, there are real methods with the potential to turn anxious addicts into bona fide quitters.

Imagine how good it will feel to stop smoking, to know you’ve done the right thing. Whatever your reasons—a spouse, a child, a couple of extra decades spent on planet Earth—there’s no escaping how important it is to leave tobacco behind. 

And for the first time, tobacco users of all stripes have a real shot. Hemp has changed everything. Sound too good to be true? 

Use your best judgment, but the reviews speak for themselves – hemp is a powerful new smoking alternative that works on multiple levels.

1606 doesn’t just sell a product – as we see it, hemp can afford you a new way of life, and probably a longer life at that. Want to stop smoking tobacco but not sure where to start? Start with this guide. For best results, we advise combustible hemp rolls in combination with other methods listed here. 

Here are 5 tools for finally making one of the biggest decisions of your life… Putting out your last tobacco cigarette.

Stop Smoking Tobacco Forever

1. Combustible Hemp Rolls

We’re not saving the best for last. If you want the one thing that can really tip the balance in your favor as you fight cravings, this is it. Smokable hemp rolls have powerful CBD content that can ease anxiety, reduce cravings, relieve pain/discomfort, and more (and it WON’T get you high).

It’s easy to try, and we’re happy to hook you up. We grant that it may feel different than anything you’re used to, but you’ll never know if you don’t try.

2. Nicotine Replacement Options

You’ll want to talk to your doctor about this one. You can pick up prescription nicotine in the form of gum, patches, lozenges, etc. Basically, there are short-acting nicotine therapies and long-term ones. The idea is to wean yourself off of tobacco cigarettes in slow, small steps. Talk to your doctor about trying one of these solutions along with a hemp roll. 

The idea will be to reduce nicotine withdrawal anxiety, simulate the feel of smoking, and gradually ease your transition off poisonous tobacco cigarettes—without even feeling like you’ve quit. Wouldn’t that be incredible? Yes, it would.

3. Steer Clear of Triggers (or at Least Prepare for Them)

This is Addiction 101: People, places, and things that remind you of smoking cigarettes will spark urges to smoke cigarettes. These urges will be some of the strongest that you have. For at least a while, try to avoid your favorite smoking spots or even certain people with whom you like to smoke tobacco.

If they can’t be avoided—and this is often the case—prepare for the ahead of time. This is the perfect situation for a hemp roll replacement. No matter what, be ready for that wave of craving to slam into you. If you prep ahead of time, it can make all the difference.

4. Hold… Hold…

It’s going to happen. If you’re trying to stop smoking, you’ll run into a craving that overwhelms you. You’ll be two seconds away from a cigarette. Maybe you’ve already given in. If you’re pretty sure the craving is going to win, make yourself a deal. 

Hold off.

Wait for 10 minutes and sit with the craving – just deal with it during this time. Distract yourself with something: Netflix, video games, a walk outside, anything. All craving waves fade with time. They rise and fall. If you are still committed to smoking a cigarette after those ten minutes, allow yourself to do it.

You were going to give in anyway, but at least this time, you put distance between the urge and the act. Again, this is a prime time to try a hemp roll instead.

5. Beware the Double Relapse

So you gave in. Now you feel bad. Maybe you feel weak, pathetic, or guilty.

Those feelings are normal, but they don’t help anyone. In fact, they create a double-relapse effect where you feel so bad that you start craving relief from the stress and shame of relapsing… Causing you to smoke yet another cigarette. The cycle goes on from there. At this rate, you’ll never stop smoking.

So don’t beat yourself up.

If you do relapse, realize that it’s normal. You haven’t lost anything. In fact, you may have just gone without a cigarette for longer than you have in years. This isn’t shameful, it’s progress! Now see if you can beat your own record.
