First of all congrats on quitting and making it to Day 5! It's very normal to feel sad when one is quitting smoking and making this lifestyle change. The coffee, chatting on the phone and smoking with a friend, these are all of your triggers and it take time to adjust to them without smoking.
Some people try drinking tea, water or juice instead of coffee until they are better used to being smoke free.
Other suggestions fro handling triggers:
-Changing areas in home when you are on phone
-Short-acting nicotine replacement therapy
-Regular chewing gum, straws, toothpicks
The first two weeks are the most difficult days, so hang in there! It will get better and it takes time. If you need further assistance, we are here until 9:00pm
