Saturday, June 20, 2009 Tip of the Day

Now that I have reached the 2 week mark until my quit date, has started sending me tips of the day. Here is today's tip...

Drink Lots of Water

Drinking lots of water is probably the single most effective way to cleanse the body of nicotine, thereby decreasing the duration and severity of withdrawal symptoms. As you prepare to quit smoking, refill all your ice-cube trays, so that when you quit you’ll have plenty of ice for cold water. You can also make juice pops, using ice-cube trays or paper cups with popsicle sticks inserted. Fill with your favorite juice, freeze, and enjoy whenever you’re having a nicotine craving (studies indicate that drinking cold water can actually remove an urge to smoke!).
