For new quitters......

Blog Post created by Mandolinrain on Jul 21, 2013

Just thought I would share a few ideas that helped ME on the first few weeks and I continue to do;

Drink cranberry juice-it helps remove Nicotine from your body. 

Drink ice water

MOVE- clean your house, drawers-rearrange your garage--

Exercise. I just started P90x+ again every morning and love it. OR..... Walk even 10 minute walks inside the house can help you pass a crave.

Buy a mini-tramp- I love mine and I jumped my fool head off for 2 weeks when I started my quit. You dont even have to jump high. Just do mini 'taps' ..great way to work off a crave.

Sweet tooth: I am a pretty healthy eater, but I seriously craved sweets at first. I took bananas-strawberries-blueberries and plain greek yogurt along with 2 packs of Stevia and threw it all in the blender. Then, using the plastic freezer bar trays ( you can buy at Wal-Mart) I made my own healthy freeze pops. My hubby likes them too!

READ: old and new blogs...any articles on this site and another site called WHYQUIT has amazing articles. Educate yourself as much as possible so you know what to Expect.

You can't get what you don't give. Blog on here when you can...by reaching out to help others, you will help yourself. AND,....should the craves hit you..read your own blogs as a reminder...your NOT gonna smoke!

Best to all of you on this site..EACH AND EVERYONE on here has helped me maintain and we will for you as well!
