How to Quit Smoking Naturally


All addiction experts agree that in order to replace an old destructive habit, you need a new positive hobby or activity to replace it.  With smoking addiction, an unhealthy respiratory activity, what could be more relevant and advantageous than a new healthy respiratory activity like pranayama yogic deep breathing!?  I personally smoked cigarettes from approximately age 18-26 and beginning daily pranayama practice is what helped easily and effortlessly ween me off cigarettes forever.  Within weeks of starting my practice I became sensitive enough to feel the negative effects of smoking even just 1 cigarette per day.  I slowly ramped up my pranayama and cut down my smoking, consciously improving my health, expanding and detoxifying my lungs, until the act of smoking became so counter-productive that I truly haven't wanted to smoke another one since.



The Yogi Cleansing Breath is the perfect detoxification breath for cigarette smokers and anyone with chronic respiratory issues or halitosis.  To perform the Yogi Cleansing Breath first sit, stand or lay with your spine straight and inhale slowly and deeply through the nose until your lungs are filled.  Make an "O" shape with your mouth and force the exhale out in 3 or 4 quick bursts pushing every last bit by clenching your abdominals.  Repeat daily for at least 10 minutes per day, inhaling deeper and slower as you go, picturing the toxins being expelled with each exhale.  With practice, this and other pranayama techniques will positively replace your negative smoking habit, and restore your lung health/capacity so you'll be breathing like this!
