Saturday, May 30, 2009 Tip of the Week is a quit smoking support website. It is free to join and is chock full of support. One of the things that I signed up for was their weekly quit smoking tips email.

Here is this weeks tip:

Booze And Smokes
If you must drink during your early quit, try to avoid getting drunk. Nicotine and alcohol have similar effects on the brain's 'pleasure pathways', but alcohol often lowers inhibitions, and because we usually drink and smoke together, there's a behavioral component to beware of as well. This is where your friends (if they are true friends) can really help out during tough moments. Eventually, you'll be able to adjust to drinking without smoking.
