When you feel the urge to smoke, go for a run, do some sit ups etc. You'll start to associate quitting the habit with being fit
Yep - exercise - even marching in place, a few jumping jacks or a set of stairs will get your heart pumping and give you the same dopamine fix as smoking a cigarette!
Yup, its a win-win
I remember the first time I was able to use a stationary bike after I quit smoking, I had been very sick and I could not do anything for several days. After that first time on the bike, for just a short period of time, I felt like a different person. I felt my mood lift and I felt positive about my quit. It really has been the best thing I ever did for myself, I just wish I had done it a lot sooner.
Exercise and keeping busy are both great new habits...Happy Thursday... ~ Colleen 311 DOF
