1. Drink lots of fluids
Drinking plenty of water can help curb the habit of chewing or smoking tobacco as it will flush out nicotine faster. Other fluids like green tea, black tea and coffee may be very effective during the withdrawal period.
2. Dried ginger and lemon
Ginger is known to contain sulphur compounds that help in reducing symptoms of tobacco addiction. All you need to do is to soak small pieces of ginger in lemon juice and mix it with pepper and store it in a container. Suck a piece whenever you feel the urge to smoke or chew tobacco.
3. Dalchini and honey
Mix some dalchini with half a teaspoon of honey and consume it with water at least 2-3 times a day to reduce the urge to smoke.
