Keeping your mouth, mind, and body busy can help overcome food cravings. Here are five things to do when you feel the urge to smoke.
Dehydration can lead to anxiety. Stay cool and collected, and keep your hands busy with a glass of water.
Eat a healthy snack
A busy mouth has no room for a cigarette. Eat a healthy snack and overcome the urge to smoke.
Kick cravings with a few minutes of calming meditation. Close your eyes and take a deep breath.
Call a Quit Buddy or Quitline
A few kind words can go a long way in suppressing the urge to smoke. Don’t be afraid to call a friend (or a quitline).
To go for a walk
Step outside when food cravings occur for an easy way to relax. Get some fresh air with a walk around the block.
