Swap Habits

Identify the situations or moods that make you smoke. Replace those triggers with activities that help you avoid cigarettes. If you smoke when you’re stressed, try exercising or playing an instrument instead to relieve stress. Like the sensation of a cigarette in your mouth? Reach for sugar-free gum or seltzer water instead.
