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.
