Many smokers vouch for the chai-cigarette pairing. All such smokers are unable to imagine chai without cigarettes. A cigarette helps them calm their nerves and chai helps them pick them up. But did you know that this pairing is hazardous for your heart? This blog explains why and what you can do to save yourself from this trap.
Why Is The Chai-Cigarette Combo Bad For Your Heart?
Chai is a stimulant. It enhances your awareness and energizes your body. On the contrary, cigarette induces pleasure; it brings on a feeling of euphoria.
A cigarette contains a powerful addictive chemical called nicotine. Nicotine hijacks the natural production of a pleasure chemical called dopamine. This results in a dopamine rush that makes you feel good.
However, the dopamine rush is short-lived, making you want to smoke again. This is why you feel like smoking every few hours.
When you find yourself in a routine situation (such as your daily chai) or are under the duress of negative emotion, you build an association of that situation or emotion with smoking.
The next time you engage in any of these, they become a cue for you to crave a cigarette. This repetitive behavior results in a habit, which develops into an addiction. Herein, chai is your cue to smoke a cigarette.
Chai increases blood flow. Cigarettes restrict the amount of oxygen in blood flow. This combination develops plaque in arteries. The arteries become rigid and lose elasticity.
As the arteries become narrow, blood pressure increases, putting the heart at risk. The heart is forced to work harder to meet the body’s requirement for oxygen in the blood.
Furthermore, smokers metabolize the end products of chai more rapidly than non-smokers. In other words, smokers have to drink more chai to get the buzz in their blood.
Caffeine present in tea makes the smoker jittery, compelling the smoker to light up a cigarette to calm their nerves. They are prone to get a heart attack or a stroke.
How Can Smotect Save You From A Heart Attack?
Your chai is your trigger to smoke a cigarette. To quit smoking, it is important to detach yourself from this cue and break the habit. Your brain has the capacity to unlearn this habit. This process is known as neuroplasticity.
There are 2 ways to unlearn this habit — biologically and psychologically. Smotect Natural Tablets can help you beat biological cravings. Smotect Guided Sessions can help you beat psychological cravings.

Smotect Natural Tablets are patented, unique scientific formulations of 12 therapeutic herbs. They are formulated to lower nicotine dependence, reduce cravings and manage withdrawal symptoms.
Smotect Natural Tablets mimic the behavior of nicotine present in cigarettes. Just as nicotine stimulates the release of the pleasure hormone dopamine, these tablets lead the body to produce its own dopamine naturally. Consequently, nicotine dependence reduces.
This naturally released dopamine also helps to sustain the elevated mood, increased energy levels, and stamina, thus reducing reliance on cigarettes drastically. So, when you start taking these tablets, your urge to smoke while having chai wanes. Gradually, you stop associating chai with cigarette smoking.

Unlearn cigarette smoking with Smotect Guided Sessions
Smotect Guided Sessions help beat psychological cravings effectively. These sessions are based on the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) approach. These step-by-step video series help you to quit smoking by:
#1] Encouraging you to accept your chai craving
Through mindfulness techniques, such as R.A.I.N. and body scan technique, you learn to identify this trigger, be aware of it, investigate its cause and then learn to detach yourself from it.
#2] Asking you to be mindful of your smoking habit
Experience the sensations that lead you to smoke so that you are fully aware of the act of smoking, i.e. feeling the cigarette, experiencing its taste and feeling the smoke.
#3] Making you dislike the idea of smoking
Gradually, you learn not to smoke distractedly. The next time you smoke a cigarette, it is the cigarette that becomes the center of attention and not your emotional cue. You begin to experience the ‘burning feeling’ and the bad taste while smoking.
#4] Helping you overcome your mental dependence on smoking
These sessions strengthen your mental muscles, equipping you with the ability to deal with slips and relapses effectively.
#5] Enabling you to experience the joy of not smoking
The video sessions reinforce awareness of your psychological triggers and smoking patterns and help you become a non-smoker for life.
