Quit Smoking with Black Licorice

Using licorice to help break the habit of smoking may not seem intuitive at first, but, in reality, licorice is likely one of the best aids for helping people quit smoking.

There's nothing inherently within the licorice root that makes people quit smoking. They key, rather, is the tobacco industry's wide spread use of licorice for their own products. Between 80% and 90% of all licorice sold in the United States is sold to the tobacco industry for use in their cigarette and chewing tobacco.

For more than 100 years, the tobacco industry has been taking advantage of the natural health benefits of licorice to improve the quality of their products. The natural sweet flavor of licorice has been used to mask the more bitter flavor of nicotine. As you can read about on our site, licorice is a natural cough suppressant and throat lozenge. The licorice root added to the tobacco helps keep smokers' mouths moist, and helps to sooth the throat. While the quantity of licorice used in tobacco is small, and its flavors subtle, the impact on the smoker's taste and experience is significant. The smoker unconsciously associates the act of smoking a cigarette with the flavor of licorice.
