Quit smoking: Avoiding triggers

Quit smoking: Avoiding triggers

Urges for a cigarette or tobacco are likely to be strongest in the situations where you smoked or used tobacco most often. Don''t set yourself up for a smoking relapse. Identify situations that trigger your tobacco cravings, and then create a plan so that you can either avoid them or get through them without using tobacco. For example, if you used to smoke after eating, leave the table when you finish your meal and go for a walk.
