• Don’t let Holiday stress win! Use the skills you have developed throughout your quit attempt so you don’t pick up tobacco again.
  • Remember: If you do relapse, it doesn’t mean you have lost everything – tomorrow is a new day, and you can ask for help.
  • Nibble on low-calorie items like carrot sticks, celery and apples; get a supply of hard candies or chew gum.
  • Stretch out your meals. Eat slowly and pause between bites.
  • After dinner, instead of a cigarette, try a mint or a cup of tea with honey.
  • Take deep breaths and exhale slowly.
  • Stay positive. Do a relaxation exercise.
  • Go for a walk.
  • Picture success.
