People who smoke are numbing their lungs, dulling their senses and nerves. The Chinese concept of the lungs being damaged relates to a person who is full of grief. Smoking may be a person’s drug of choice to cover up some sadness in their life.
It can be helpful to reduce smoking by reducing the number of cigarettes by 20% per day or reduce them once a week by 20% again. All the while use one or more homeopathic remedies to reduce cravings. Using natural remedies to stop smoking can have a positive effect on your lungs and your life.
