Smoking during pregnancy increases the risk of pregnancy complications, low birth weight, and birth defects. Risk of miscarriages may increase with regular smoking. Similarly, men may also face an of health problems such as hormonal issues, erectile dysfunction, and reduced libido. Since prevention is always better than cure, here are some natural ways to kick the butt and quit tobacco.

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
