My Tip of the Day:

Dealing with cravings

You've done it. You've made it well into your quit day and you are still smoke free! You're probably beginning to have cravings for tobacco, however, and are wondering how you are going to deal with them. Craving a cigarette can be hard to deal with but remember -- cravings are temporary and pass in a few minutes. Fight the urge to smoke with the Five D's: Delay (until the urge passes); Deep breaths; Drink water; Discuss your cravings; and do something to Distract yourself (like exercise one of the other four D's, for example).
