Driving Quitting Tips

Blog Post created by Youngatheart.7.4.12 on Jan 10, 2019

Some folks lately have been asking for tips to help them when they are driving while quitting smoking, since that was one of the few places left where you could still smoke.  Here are some tips I've gathered over the years.


Use some of the money you are saving to have your car detailed. Put apple slices under the seats to absorb remaining odor, and leave windows cracked when you can to let in fresh air. Keep them closed when you are driving to reduce the smoking association.   Change your routes to usual places so the scenery is different. Count the red/blue/white cars you see, or the lights you hit or miss. Keep a cold bottle of water from which to sip and some mints or gum. Get a book on tape or tunes to which you can sing aloud. Make up stories about the people you see in other cars: Where are they going? Do they want to go there? Why or why not? What do you think they had for breakfast? If it's more than a single person, what are they talking about? Work? Family? Sports?  Are they happy, sad, bored?  Why?


Please add any other tips you might have!
