How Do I Cope With Smoking Cravings?

Nicotinell® has the advice you need so that you can cope with any smoking cravings that you encounter.

A couple of minutes will be the duration of many cravings. When they do hit, think about your reason for quitting. If it’s a loved one, keep a photo handy. Looking to save money? Keep track of how much additional money you’re making by choosing not to smoke and then look at the savings anytime you get a craving for a cigarette.

Exercise is another great way to keep your mind off smoking. This can be as intense or as relaxing as you’d like — walking, jogging or even going up and down a set of stairs from time to time are all sure to help boost your energy and beat that craving.

Another technique for coping with smoking cravings is to take slow and deep breaths where you inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth. Repeat this ten times per routine and you should feel quickly feel relaxed.

These helpful tricks along with the use of nicotine replacement treatment programs can help you get through those tough moments. With this in mind, we recommend you try nicotine replacement products such as the discreet and convenient nicotine lozenges and nicotine gum. Alternatively, use nicotine patches which give you a consistent supply of nicotine for a maximum of 24 hours per patch.
