Quit Smoking Naturally with Quit Tea + Giveaway! US Only - Ends 9/9


I admit, I had my stint as a smoker back in my late teens & early 20's and have been guilty of having a "social cigarette" here and there throughout my life. I'm happy to say, I haven't touched a cigarette in over 10 years and don't intend to again.  I certainly don't miss the smell on my breath or in my hair & clothes and, just from a health point of view, I know (and knew) that even one here & there can do damage.  

Many people struggle with quitting smoking - some can quit cold turkey and never look back - but with most, the nicotine addiction can take a firm hold and hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars are spent over a lifetime on patches, gum, hypnosis, and more..with each attempt to quit.  Some people find one thing that works for them, but sometimes it takes trial and error and a combination of products and techniques that finally helps them kick the habit.



Quit Tea is an herbal supplement, in tea form, with a combination of natural herbs & spices that can help support willpower and replace the habit of smoking with sipping on tea...helping you achieve a healthier (smoke-free) life!

Quit Tea contains:

Valerian Root
Sarsaparilla Root
Cinnamon Bark
Burdock Root
Red Clover Flower
St. John Wort Leaf & Flower
Ginger Root
Clove Bud
Licorice Root
Fennel Seed
Oregano Leaf
Black Pepper 
Cayenne Pepper



There are many physical symptoms of nicotine withdrawal you can face when trying to quit smoking - not to mention the psychological ones - and studies show it can take 5-6 weeks to get past this!  

Let's take a look at a few things you might experience when smoking/quitting smoking and how the ingredients in Quit Tea can help ease these symptoms naturally:

Anxiety - Valerian Root acts as a mild sedative reducing stress & nervousness. St. John's Wort can do the same and also improves mood. Red Clover & Licorice are also mild relaxants. These herbs stay in your body for up to 6 hours, helping to reduce your craving for nicotine.

Low Energy - Sarsaparilla, Licorice, Fennel, and Red Clover stimulate your adrenal glands (especially Licorice) in the same way nicotine does which can help keep your energy level higher & steadier.

Appetite Suppression - Many people put on weight when they quit smoking, as nicotine can reduce appetite, and is a big worry when thinking about quitting. The Red Clover & Fennel can help reduce your appetite - and making a point to do more physical activities can also help keep any weight gain at bay.

Detoxification - Smoking fills our bodies with a lot of toxins and when those toxins release when we're trying to quit smoking, it can bring about more cravings.  Burdock Root is a natural detoxifying herb that can help flush these toxins out of your body faster. Faster toxin flushing = an end to those awful cravings!

Lung Regeneration - It's no secret the damage smoking does to your lungs - the photos and evidence are out there! Many people finally decide to quit after noticing diminished lung capacity - and I'd have to agree that not being able to breathe well would be quite scary! The Oregano, Fennel, Red Clover, Licorice, Cayenne, and Black Pepper found in Quit Tea help clean out the lungs - while Sarsaparilla, Red Clover, and Burdock Root help detoxify your liver, colon, kidneys, and blood.

Losing Taste - Smoking signals our pleasure receptors...so of course we want more of what's telling us 'hey this feels good' - even when it's so unhealthy. Black Pepper & Cayenne help desensitize these receptors - which makes smoking less pleasurable. 

Psychologically, we just get into the habit of smoking - it's something you've done for so long, you don't know what to do with yourself once you've stopped - or are trying to.  Sipping Quit Tea can help replace that habit.



I can't really fully review this product as I'm not a smoker - but I did try the tea and can tell you that, at first sniff, I was taken back a little - it smells stronger than the herbal teas I'm used to - which, admittedly, are on the mild side.  I brewed a cup and was expecting a strong taste as well, but was pleasantly surprised.  The taste was actually more on the mellow side and was as enjoyable to drink as any of the other teas I do drink for pleasure!  

I did give the tea I received to a friend and asked her to try it.  She's not a pack a day smoker, but does smoke throughout the day and I know she's mentioned wanting to quit many times. I thought she would be able to give me a smoker's insight to Quit Tea. After nearly two weeks, she told me:

"I stuck with this like you suggested and look forward to my tea now. As we stand, I am having 2 cigarettes a day instead of 5 or 6 like before. I'm happy about that. It does add up and I'm hoping to stick with this and be rid of them by Christmas. The tea tastes good and drinking it at night helps me sleep and keeps my mind off of having that before bed cig."

I think that's a pretty good Christmas gift to give yourself! 

If you want to learn more about how you can stop smoking, the Quit Tea website has a wealth of information for you.  You can also find out where to buy Quit Tea - online or in-store.

A box of Quit Tea contains 20 tea bags and retails for $12.99 (check Amazon or Walmart which has it for $10 & under).  It's suggested you sip on 3-5 cups a day. Since it takes around 66 days to fully quick a habit to the curb, you may need anywhere from 9-16 boxes over the course.  When you think of the cost of cigarettes as well as the health care risks that come with being a smoker, this could be a sound investment for you! 

Quit Tea is not intended for women who are pregnant or nursing and, as with anything health related, you should always consult your own physician before taking this, or any supplement; especially if you have a medical condition or are taking other medications.

You can connect with Quit Tea socially on Twitter and Facebook

If you or a loved one want to be an ex-smoker, consider trying Quit Tea for a healthy, natural way to help you empty that ashtray for the last time!

  5. I learned that if you stick with Quit Tea for at least 12 weeks as part of your smoking cessation plan, you will be well on your way to living smoke free. I personally have tried to quit earnestly at least half a dozen times, and have had varying degrees of success. And yet, I am still smoking. And I don't want to. But the nicotine has its grasp on me. SO I would be willing to try this to see if perhaps THIS is the thing that will FINALLY get me off the cigarettes!

  10. I do like tea so maybe the Substitution Strategy for Quitting Smoking, by replacing their tea for my smoke, would work. I do make myself go outside to smoke and with the cold weather starting to get ready to come avalanche us, this sounds like it might work!
