Does coffee help stop smoking
I am not sure. some people drink less coffee because the caffeine can be a trigger to smoke. I drink more.
Agree. It depends. Some used to prefer coffee and cigarette (together or smoking after coffee).
To quit smoking, such earlier situation will trigger more for smoke. Good to avoid both after quit if so.

Never heard that. Some have to quit coffee early on, but I didn't.
It helped me. I drank strong, small cups several time throughout the day. It helped replace the boost I had previously gotten from cigarettes. Coffee is a health food drink as long as you are mindful of what you are putting in it.
Drinking coffee was never a trigger for me to smoke - but for many it does trigger a crave. Do what works for you! Best wishes!
There is no panacea available to make quitting easy and painless. Don't know how coffee would help, except the caffeine boost might help replace the dopamine hit you experience when you smoke.
I wish there WERE a magic potion to make it easier, but alas, it takes education, planning, preparation, commitment and support to be successful.
Please start with the reading I recommended - especially the book by Allen Carr. It will change the way you think about smoking!
This might be MOO (my opinion only). No, coffee does not help anybody quit. But some do choose to lean on coffee more to help distract from thoughts of smoking. It's a hand to mouth replacement too, I suppose. I drank coffee for that reason. But I chose this behavior. I knew it could not replace the effect of smoking and that in time I'd have to get over the nicotine addiction. That was over 5.5 years ago. You can get over the dependency one day at a time, just like so many of us quitters. Give it a chance and a lot of can do power.
Maybe, it depends how many pots you chug at once. As long as you are buzzing and shaky with caffeine you can't hold or light a cigarette!
WELCOME and yahooooo for staying NICOTINE FREE - WAY TO GO ! Thanks for asking and for ME - I quit caffine too - for MY PERSONAL NON smoker life style - just sharing MY experience that worked for ME - gentle hug.
I had to cut way back on my caffeine intake because I am much more sensitive to it now that I don't smoke. I used to drink a POT and now I drink a mug.
My opinion is that that can be different for everyone . I never related smoking and coffee together. So I drank coffee the same as normal and enjoyed my morning coffee with the newspaper instead of a cigarette.
I think drinking water would be your better option . Coffee make you dehydrated , yancy . People can be addicted as well to caffeine fixes . I think things like cinnamon tea would be a good option as cinnamon seems to cut down cravings . I would limit those tho too however if you are caafinating yourself it can raise blood pressure . Water is best .
