One of my favourite distractions in my first months of my quit was the good old ping pong ball . It was relatively not dangerous lol.
I could throw it against a blank wall either in my house or inside my garage against the door without damage .. a baseball bat not a good idea unless your sure your going to be very careful lol .
I had to focus on the ping pong ball more than my thoughts of smoking . I turned the music up loud in an effort to block the rattle in my head that screamed addiction . I'd bounce or paddle the ping pong ball backnforth backnforth . I so wished I had the table too , and someone to play against lol .
I now think a yo yo might also be a good distraction as well , or if you have a badket ball and hoop . If your able to , take a shot at it . Good excersise and if you have kids well hey they can teach mom and dad the tricks . This is an afterthought , but I wish it would have been on my tools list too . If you have kids and are quitting invest in some badminton rackets, board games . Get them involved , they'll love you for it .
Anyway , I'm sure everyone has their tools too that works for them .. the ideas just keep getting bigger and better .. much better than smoking . Be creative, find a tool that works for you .
