Hi community members!
Often as a quit coach, clients sometimes ask what works best to help distract them from the urge to smoke. We know smoking involves both behavioural and psychological aspects, and thus it may be helpful to consider engaging in activities that keep your hands, mouth, and mind busy.
Some things that are good for the hands are knitting, playing a video game, or texting a friend. Chewing flavoured gum and brushing teeth are often good distractions for your mouth. Distractions of the mind might be to listen to music or complete a puzzle.
Perhaps you can share one thing you would find as a good distraction from each category to keep your hands, mouth, and mind busy.
