How Monq helped me quit smoking a pack a day

Yes, you read that headline right.  Let me just say right off the bat, no smoking is better than smoking. If you are struggling to quit smoking, TRY THIS!!! PSA: Incase you didn’t know, I am an essential oil lady. I use Frankincense daily as well as a ton of others. If you are an essential oil person, you have to try this out. If you are trying to quit smoking… seriously, please… try it. Every image on here links to their site… so check it out.

So this post is long overdue. In January I decided to quit smoking cold turkey. I had been smoking over a pack a day at that point. I wouldn’t say I was a closet smoker but it was just something everyone kind of knew… at least to my knowledge… smoking stinks… but not something I made overly known or public. To be honest, it is a bad habit of mine I had always been ashamed of. I judged myself for doing it, yet I don’t judge others… we are our own worst critic. Jennii introduced me to Monq months ago shoutout JenniiShe heard about it from a friend, whom it helped with their anxiety right Jennii? Sorry if I am butchering this bad boy… feel free to add in anything. 

Smoking is a funny thing. I had smoked cigarettes for years. Somehow I had been able to quit when pregnant, and nursing. I was always able to quit for their health but what makes my health any different? Sounds funny. I literally hadn’t smoked in four years but I went back. For me, it has always been a delight. I have enjoyed the feeling that goes with it. Just sitting and having a cigarette. That was my biggest challenge. Letting go of that feeling that I enjoyed. Monq was my vessel and aid in quitting because not only was it helping me chill out, I was also not getting the nicotine. I have tried the gum in the past and it always made me feel so sick. This though, this is a gem of all gems.

Monq is advertised as a personal essential oil diffuser. MONQ Therapeutic Air® Portable Aromatherapy Diffusers turn our custom blends of essential oils and vegetable glycerin into water vapor and aromatherapy, so while the term “vaporizer” is technically accurate, it can be slightly misleading. MONQ does not contain any of the ingredients commonly found in many of the devices labeled vaporizers, such as nicotine or artificial flavoring. This is why we choose to call MONQ a portable aromatherapy diffuser rather than a “vaporizer.” ~monq.com

~don’t mind if I do.

The portable diffuser has a lithium battery that creates a distilled- steam that you breathe in through your mouth without inhaling and breath out through your nose. While this still looks like smoking a cigarette, there is no nicotine involved. It is all natural product that is a small percent of essential oils within safe use. I have found that when I use the product it has a stronger effect because it is literally coming out through my nasal passages. I could bathe in these oils and not feel it the same because I am smelling the stuff at a different level of damn.

There are 10 different blends…

I currently own Happy, Zen and Active 

Happy literally boosts my mood; the primary oils are Fennel, Thyme and Vanilla. Also has notes of Caraway, Clary Sage, Lavender, Mandarin, Marjoram, Parsley Seed & Petitgrain

Zen literally chills me out; it has Orange, Frankincense, and Ylang-ylang as the primary oils. It also has notes of Black Pepper, Clary Sage, Dill Seed, Eucalyptus, Lemon, Rosemary, Sage, Spearmint & Tea Tree. I use a lot of Frankincense in meditation and literally ZEN moments. I use the crap out of this one.

Active gives me a pep in my step; it has Black pepper, Orange, and Sage. Other oils are Allspice, Anise, Copaiba, Frankincense, Lemon, Mandarin Yellow, Parsley Seed, Rosemary, Spearmint & Sweet Orange.

I realize smoking is an escape. It is an adrenaline thing almost, like I would get so anxious I just needed to walk away. In reality, I would not be able to tell you why I needed to walk away or what was making me anxious. Honestly, I believe it is the nicotine withdrawal the first few days were hell… BUT MONQ helped ease the urge and PAIN that goes with quitting. It has also helped ease my anxiety feelings. I will 10/10 recommend this product to anyone over 18 not pregnant or nursing or with any other breathing, or heart problems just because of disclaimer. 

So thank you Monq, for putting out an amazing product. Thank you for helping me quit smoking.
