Tackling Meal Times...

 

1


Be careful what you eat - try not to snack on fatty or salty foods.

3


Assist the body in getting rid of nicotine. Drink plenty of water; eat
fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fibre-rich foods.

3


Change your eating habits to help you cut down; e.g., drink milk,
which many people consider incompatible with smoking.

4


Change the daily schedule. Eat at different times or eat many small
meals instead of 3 large ones; sit in a different chair; rearrange the furniture.

5


Find other ways to close a meal. Play music; eat a piece of fruit;
get up and make a phone call.

6


Instead of smoking after meals, get up from the table & brush your teeth.

7


Try to avoid alcohol, coffee, and other beverages that
you associate with cigarette smoking.
