So you’ve tried quitting smoking before.  Perhaps you’ve tried going cold turkey and know the stress of quitting.  Once you turn off the nicotine and take the plunge, stress builds up and chances of success seem somehow slimmer.

And after you quit, just as with rebounding after a diet, the number of cigarettes you smoke increases, frustrating you all the more and contributing to a vicious cycle. But wait – the secret of successful smoking cessation is to gradually reduce stress.

This time we’ll be discussing the filter-type approach to quitting with cessation goods like Rien Pipe.  A large number of people have succeeded in quitting using this approach.  This time, we will show you how to use this novel, easy-to-use technology and its effects.


What are filter-type smoking cessation products?

This new class of quit-smoking aid is not intended to stop your habit overnight.  Rather it aims to help gradually decrease the amount of nicotine you inhale as you smoke and slowly wean you off the addictive element of cigarettes.  With this method, a small pipe-like mouthpiece is attached to the cigarette filter.  A hole in the middle of the device allows air to enter and diffuse nicotine-containing smoke as it is inhaled.  Although there are similar products in the market, Rien Pipe is the only approach that slowly, gradually weans smokers off nicotine at a barely perceivable rate in the span of about a month.

As opposed to quitting overnight or swapping out one form of nicotine and replacing with another, Rien Pipe cuts down nicotine without the discomfort of withdrawal.  Since this happens over the span of around a month, the body can slowly adjust to gradually decreasing nicotine levels in a virtually painless, stress-free manner.  Once the body is used to a low-nicotine state, many Rien Pipe users simply come to feel one day that they don’t need to smoke anymore, and successfully take the next step in eliminating cigarettes completely from their life.

Since the act of smoking itself can be continued, many content users in this cessation aid category do not feel that their “mouth is lonely”, a common complaint with nicotine replacement therapy.  Quite simply, it is a straightforward way to comfortably quit smoking over time.


Rien Pipe vs. other filter-type cessation aids

Filter-type cessation goods are available in different formats.  Some nicotine filters come in a bulk pack (one filter per day) and dramatically cut down the amount of nicotine inhaled. Others come in 4 stages and help step down nicotine 25% at each stage.  Both of these products are designed to be disposable.  And success rates for both of these product categories is questionable, and many of the users report experiencing some manner of unpleasant withdrawal symptom.

Rien Pipe, in contrast, comes in a pack of 31 – one per day for a month – and has been designed to be washable and reusable during the span of the program.  Even in the early stages, the nicotine and tar cut only amounts to around 3% per day, which most users have reported to be such a minute change that they can hardly perceive the difference day to day.  (Which is exactly why so many people have praised Rien Pipe.)

On a daily basis, with Rien Pipe the quitter will switch to the next filter in the sequence, which in turn removes an additional 3% of nicotine.  While some users occasionally report needing to stick with the same filter for a day or two, they are able to simply wash and re-use their Rien Pipe until accustomed to a given nicotine level.

The final Rien Pipe in series cuts most of the nicotine.  Coming this far, between 70-89% of users (based on an internal survey) are successful in taking the next step – to complete smoking cessation.  All done without the need for drugs or medication.


How is the effect of smoking cessation?

As mentioned above, based on an internal survey, we found that overwhelmingly close to 90% of customers succeeded in quitting smoking with Rien Pipe – most of them doing so without feeling the stress and anxiety typically experienced with smoking cessation.  Of course, as with any cessation approach, Rien Pipe is not necessarily for everyone.  Unlike e-cigarettes and vaping, it doesn’t attempt to switch one form of smoking for another.  It does, however, let you continue that aspect of the ritual, gradually curtailing nicotine, until you no longer feel the need to smoke.

“I want to quit smoking, but I can’t quit immediately.”  We’ve done as much as we can to help lower that quit hurdle to the maximum extent possible, offering that new chance to people who want another take on life before smoking.


Final word

Filter-type cessation goods are not only convenient, but they carry with them many additional benefits – all without the typical stress associated with quitting.

So why the high cost compared to other smoking cessation products?  Well, we like to think of it this way: Rien Pipe doesn’t attempt to keep you hooked on the product line, buying the next pack of nicotine patches or gum or that next cartridge of vape juice.  We have had some cases where a family will share one kit – simply washing and re-using as they go.  We continue looking ahead to helping people quit one kit at a time.


Can smoking damage skin? How tobacco changes how you look

Can smoking damage skin? How tobacco changes how you look

with No Comments

Cigarettes are known to have an adverse effect on various parts of the body, and skin is no exception.

Ever look at people around your age and wonder why smokers tend to look older, while everyone else tends to look around the same age?  Smokers’ skin can have a certain texture and appearance that outwardly shows the extent of their habit.  One of the often undermentioned advantages of smoking cessation is that the skin environment can also improve as well, helping smokers look more their own age after quitting.  This time we will discuss about the relationship between cigarettes and skin and how skin condition changes after quitting smoking.


Why is tobacco harmful to the skin

So why does tobacco cause damage to the skin in the first place?

Although there are a variety of reasons, two immediate and key ones boil down to a lack of vitamin C and to a decreased amount of blood flow/active oxygen in the body.  First of all, vitamin C is said to be an indispensable vitamin to maintain beautiful skin. In addition, since vitamin C is not produced in the body, it must be taken in from food such as vegetables and fruits.

Smoking actually will destroy the vitamin C necessary for skin – the habit can reduce up to 40% the body’s supply of the vitamin. It’s said that smokers can be in a state of chronic vitamin C deficiency as a result, and given that absorption of some vitamins encourages better absorption of other vitamins, smokers can be at a risk for decreased levels of these as well.  Even if you take vitamin C from food, it will still be lost in the process of smoking.  As a result, the body lacks this key chemical compound needed to maintain beautiful skin.

Nicotine in tobacco is also said to cause the deterioration of blood flow as well as the increase of active oxygen, which “rusts” the body and boosts oxidation.  It seems that mainstream smoke and secondhand smoke have also been found to adversely affect the skin.


Examples of adverse effects of tobacco on the skin

Skin damage appears due to the bad influence of smoking as mentioned above. One of the most common appearance changes is in the form of wrinkles.  Smokers’ skin often to appear older due to the more pronounced presence of wrinkles.  In particular for women, wrinkles present an issue because it can cause the appearance to look several years – or even a decade in some cases – older than the actual age.

It is also known that the skin of smokers tends to darken. This is also caused by tobacco tar in smoke as well as the compounding effect of vitamin C deficiency.  Some women may think that because they use cosmetics to help “heal” the skin, it’s not so much of a problem, however concealing tobacco skin with makeup will only go so far.  The spread of pimples and blackheads are also an example of adverse effects due to smoking.  If you care about your skin’s future, you should really choose to quit smoking.


Never give up! Skin beauty skin effect will surely appear

Even if you are a relatively conservative (light) smoker, many of the adverse effects described above will nevertheless appear, though onset may be delayed somewhat.  We still think it’s a brilliant idea for your health overall to consider quitting smoking.  When you do quit, your skin’s beauty won’t return overnight, however you will likely start seeing results in the mirror in as little as around 2 weeks.  As blood flow begins to return and vitamin levels readjust and normalize, you’ll start noticing that your skin has a changed texture with fewer wrinkles and spotting.

Connecting these small changes to motivation is also a secret to smoking cessation. It’s a good idea to set a goal of quitting for two weeks for your skin!


Final word

Although there are some people who are indifferent to their appearance, I think that most people care somewhat about their presentation to others.  Every time you smoke over the years, your skin will gradually erode and bear witness to smoking’s toxic effects.  If you decide today to start quitting smoking and take steps to take better care of your body and skin, you’ll feel the positive effects of your decision for the rest of your life.


Smoking & Nicotine Dependence: Two types of addiction

Smoking & Nicotine Dependence: Two types of addiction

with No Comments

Tobacco contains a harmful substance called nicotine, but did you know that nicotine’s dependency is higher than heroin?

It has been said that the strength of withdrawal symptoms of nicotine can exceed those for cocaine.  Many would-be quitters point to this single thing as an intimidating obstacle preventing them from smoking.  Also, because the act of smoking a cigarette itself is made into a habit, there are times when you feel uncomfortable if you do not have it at hand.

In this article, we will introduce a method to overcome the two dependencies – nicotine dependence, which frustrates smoking cessation, and psychological dependence on the act of smoking.


What is nicotine dependence?

feeling nicotine smoking withdrawl

Some smokers have withdrawal symptoms due to nicotine dependence called “nicotine run out.”  Simply put, over time the body becomes dependent on nicotine.  If a smoker doesn’t get their nicotine fix within a certain period of time, they will often experience symptoms such as a strong desire to smoke, in addition to irritability, inability to concentrate or focus, and sleep disturbance.

When people with a strong nicotine dependence start quitting smoking, they may feel impatient, feel uneasy, and in extreme cases may even experience suicidal thoughts or fall into a state of mental instability. In general, withdrawal symptoms develop strongly during the initial period, but in many cases will calm down with time as the body copes with a lack of nicotine.

For nicotine dependence, the older the age at which a smoker starts smoking, the higher the risk.  One of the factors that causes nicotine addiction is by continuously smoking tobacco, nicotine receptors in the brain are increased.  Due to this, dopamine – a chemical which produces the sensation of pleasure – is given off when nicotine is taken in.  As a result, since people feel “comfortable” when dopamine comes out during smoking, smoking itself becomes a closed-loop cycle.


What is psychological dependence on smoking?

Psychological dependence on smoking means that the behavior surrounding smoking has formed into a habit.  This includes everything from the perceived need to have something between your fingers or in your mouth, to thoughts such as wanting to finish lunch quickly in order to have a longer smoke break at work.

Smoking is said (usually by smokers) to relieve stress and promote a sense of relaxation, but withdrawal symptoms of tobacco are caused by smoking in the first place.  Since tobacco itself does not have a relaxing effect, unpleasant withdrawal symptoms are gradually lost during the process of continuing smoking cessation.


Overcoming two tobacco dependencies

Both psychological dependence and nicotine dependence can be said to be close to drug dependence.  As a result, there are many people who continue smoking for some time regardless of the negative health effects and awareness of smoking’s dangers, due to a perception that withdrawal or changing habits might be even worse.

Now there are a wide variety of methods and aids that can assist with quitting smoking.  However, in order to eliminate the custom of cigarettes from everyday life it is important to decide clear goals beyond smoking cessation.  Just vaguely saying, “I want to quit smoking,” alone doesn’t work.  By clarifying specifically “why do you want to quit” or “what you want after you quit,” it can be easier to maintain your motivation in quitting smoking.  Bear in mind that withdrawal symptoms can be particularly painful at the beginning, but for most people these last only around 14 days.  Joining others who are also thinking of smoking cessation and quitting together can also help boost motivation, and behavior modification programs designed for smokers (many of which are freely available) can help people quit and stay quit.


Final word

There are individual differences in the degree of dependence, but those who have the experience of being restless without a cigarette may already depend on tobacco.  Human beings can live without cigarettes. However, if you are in a dependent state, life without tobacco will initially be stressful.  Stress may become priming, which can lead to failure to quit smoking.  In order to quit smoking, it is effective not only to set clear targets but also to consider small targets linked to daily lives.

Incidentally, this is true with Rien Pipe as well.  Although Rien Pipe has been designed to gradually decrease nicotine intake, which may result in experiencing many fewer (if any) withdrawal symptoms, it addresses the physical dependency on nicotine.  Taking steps to really change your routine and lifestyle and embrace being an ex-smoker is equally important.  Imagine the “you” after you quit smoking and start taking concrete steps to invite them into your life today.


How to get rid of cigarette smell? Top 3 ways to deodorize a smoker’s house

How to get rid of cigarette smell? Top 3 ways to deodorize a smoker’s house

with No Comments

Smokers themselves may not be fully aware of it, but their clothes as well as those of their family members/roommates likely have a strong smoke smell stuck to them.

Tobacco odor can be particularly obnoxious for non-smokers and when attached to clothes it can follow people around without their being conscious of it.  Getting rid of impacted cigarette smell can be a struggle, however this time we will list three simple ways to remove (or at least drastically reduce) the impact of smokey smells on clothes.


1. Hang clothes in a humid place

Generally, smells are comprised of a soup of many different chemicals.  Even if one component can be eliminated, there is a possibility that another will continue to leech odor.  Each of these scent components can also have different properties, which in turn can make it a challenge to completely deodorize an object, such as clothing or fabric, and it can take some time to get the odor out.

Humidity is a key tool in removing odor, as scent molecules will tend to latch on to water molecules.  A simple tactic is to place clothes laced with tobacco odor in a bathroom with high humidity (e.g. just after showering).  Moisture will cover the fabric surface.  As it evaporates, many of the various cigarette odor components will be wicked away as well.

You can also spray a mist of water on clothes (e.g. shirt, jeans) and dry them outside in the sun.  This will have a similar result.

With the same principle, you can spray iron steam on your clothes.  In this case, be sure that if you steam clothes clean, that you also use a fan to allow air circulation so that odor molecules don’t land back on clothes.


2. Use deodorizers or activated charcoal

Sometimes using moisture may not be enough.  Activated charcoal is a simple, low-cost way of deodorizing objects.

There are countless small holes in the activated charcoal.  These pores allow charcoal to absorb many of the odors that cling even to the fine fibers of clothes.  By placing clothes in a plastic bag overnight together with activated charcoal, tobacco odor components can be removed.

Also, keep in mind that certain products, such as leather and suede, are sensitive to moisture and drying.  Leather goods can not be recommended for humid areas because it will cause bruising when using moisture or steaming.  Activated charcoal should not, however, present a problem.  For leather goods with particularly heavy tobacco smells, it is better to use a leather cleaner suitable for leather goods – or have them cleaned by a professional.


3. Wash clothes early or send them out for cleaning

One of the best ways to eliminate cigarette smell is to wash clothes as soon as you think that they smell.  Select garments, such as coats, may best be cleaned by professionals who are adept at removing odors.  Keeping less-worn items in airtight garment bags can be a good way of minimizing odor as well.

Bear in mind that the smell of cigarettes means that harmful substances contained in tobacco smoke are also adhering to clothes.  Among these, tar is a sticky ingredient, and it can not be removed easily if it adheres. Left untouched, it will cause deterioration of clothes as well, so washing clothes soon and regularly is important not just for odor control, but for preservation of clothes, too.


Final word

Cigarette odor easily attaches itself to clothing and fabrics.  In order to stop smelling like a smoker, finding ways to regularly remove smoke odor from clothing is important.  This can be done in several ways, and not just through washing.  Have you encountered any additional effective ways to remove cigarette odor from clothes?  Please share them below.
