Delay smoking your cigarette
Every time you feel an urge, find something else to do, and your urges will come less frequently.

• If other offer you cigarettes, say no.
• For woman. Schedule your quit date after your monthly period, when the withdrawal symptoms will be less severe.
Replace cigarettes with something else
Find activities that you enjoy and that will allow you to have fun (such as reading, movies, singing, etc.). Keep your mouth and hands busy by holding a pen instead of cigarette, chewing gum, straw or cinnamon stick. And at last but not least, positive thinking and reward.
