Welcome and congratulations for taking this important
decision to quit smoking. We are happy to hear that you are trying to quit
again and we just want to let you know that you are not alone in your quit
journey. We are here for you and we believe that you can do this!
There are different ways to distract yourself when you have
a craving. Brieffree and eagerquit have great ideas for the cravings such as
going for a walk, exercising, talk to someone, start a new hobby etc. Also, some
people find helpful to have their hands busy with something: play on your
phone, play games, play with a straw or a stress ball; brush your teeth; read a
book; listen to music; watch a good movie; do a crossword puzzle or Sudoku;
text a friend; do some cleaning, draw or paint something etc.
Cravings can start at any time. When you think about smoking
or want a cigarette, do everything you can to get out of that situation and go
somewhere else or do something else. Cravings don’t last as long as most people
think they do. You can take control of your cravings. You can do it!
