Smoking cigarettes has become many people’s legal go-to-drug of choice when they need a quick stress buster.
Smoking a cigarette is well known way to self-administer a relaxing pick-me-up.
I guess we find it so difficult to quit smoking because of this very power it has,
to both stimulate and relax us at the same time.
What else is interesting is that high dose vitamin C also relaxes us, and picks us up – at the same time too.
Findings from this recent study suggests that high vitamin C status may be associated with improved overall mood in young adult males.
And this interesting article from Psychology Today concludes that, “People who have high levels of vitamin C do not show the expected mental and physical signs of stress when subjected to acute psychological challenges”.
Caroline Cranshaw, the author of ‘The Smoking Cure’ says that
A) Smokers are found to have below average levels of Vitamin C.
B) A pack-a-day smokers levels of Vitamin C are as much as 40 percent lower then a non-smoker.
C) Smoking uses up around 25 milligrams of the vitamin C in your system, per cigarette.
D) Your body does not make vitamin C on its own, and our body does not store it either.
E) If we are depleting our body of Vitamin C it is therefor essential that we take supplemental Vitamin C, and eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables that contain vitamin C.
Furthermore, she says that studies have shown that taking Vitamin C is as effective as taking a nicotine replacement drugs for cigarette cravings.
