Managing Your Symptoms
- Keep other things around instead of cigarettes. Try carrots, sunflower seeds, apples, celery, raisins, or sugar free gum.
- Take a walk or write down your feelings in a journal, or do a crossword puzzle, Sudoku; when you want a cigarette very badly.
- Learn to relax quickly by taking deep breaths. Visit this site for breathing exercises http://www.olemiss.edu/counseling/relaxation.html (download MP3 and listen)
- Drink water. Water is a great quitting aid. It helps you detoxify more quickly and works well as a craving-buster. And by keeping yourself hydrated, you'll feel better overall. Drink plenty of water throughout the day.
- Light incense or a candle instead of a cigarette.
