Tips to quit smoking

Quitting is tough that’s why we keep it simple with these handy tips.

IDENTIFY & AVOID YOUR TRIGGERS

  • Being around people who you usually smoke with can make you want a cigarette
  • Having a drink of alcohol lowers your rationality leading you to picking a cigarette back up
  • If you always have a cigarette with your coffee or tea then this can cause you to crave a cigarette when you brain wants a hit of nicotine
  • Change your routine, if you have a morning cigarette break at 11am, go earlier at 10.30am before you get the craving so when you get back to your work you can focus on your job instead of cravings.
  • Keep active to avoid thinking of smoking
