Quit smoking: Getting physical

Quit smoking: Getting physical

Physical activity can help distract you from tobacco cravings and reduce the intensity of cravings. Just 30 minutes of moderate physical activity can make a craving go away. Go out for a walk or jog. If you''re stuck at home or the office, try squats, deep knee bends, pushups, running in place, or walking up and down a set of stairs a few times. Or do chores, such as vacuuming or filing paperwork.
