    Stay strong...in the early days I did plenty of cooking..knitting..walking and binge watching my favourite shows...the more time you give yourself life soon becomes the new 'smokefree' normal...and don't forget a treat or two to celebrate those hard won days!😊

    Carry a water bottle and drink a mouthful each time you feel a desire to smoke.
    Think of your favourite places, or movie, or book.
    Go for a walk
    Get out in the garden
    Anything you do to distract yourself is worth a try to break the habit.
    Good luck.

    Agree with Blondene and clarence the cat on their suggestions.
    In these early days of quitting it is important to be kind to yourself and avoiding unnecessary stress is a good idea. Finding ways to keep yourself busy but also making time to relax.
