Instead of Smoking

Instead of smoking might I recommend these healthy alternatives?

Mah Jong or other computer games that utilize both the brain and the hands.

A new hobby like Knitting or Crotchetting. You really want to use your mind as much as your body when attempting to distract yourself.

I also highly recommend engaging the body in a respectful and challenging way (in other words get off the couch so you'll stop obsessing about smoking). Kickboxing and yoga are my favorite ways to whip my new self into shape and engage my body in a challenge.

Discover something new about yourself. Give yourself persmission to LEARN something new. You're brain has been allowed to slide a little while smoking. Time to work it.

DDR (Dance Dance Reveloution) has been my way of coping. It's so much fun, and great excercise! And it can be done in my living room.

excellent choice Brandie. We got two dance knock offs for Christmas and they are no fun at all. Sometimes you need the real thing.

Other than the anti-smoking medicine chantix, the quit smoking drug Zyban and a whole array of nicotine replacement therapies, namely, nicotine gum, patches, lozenges et al are also available in the market that help you to trigger off smoking cessation. But, significant Chantix facts present at the website make it apparent that in spite of the presence of all these anti-smoking therapies, Chantix still remains the most highly sought after quit smoking drug on account of the Chantix superb mechanism that helps you to get rid of nicotine addiction at ease.
