I have attempted to quit smoking many times and I found that the most effective way to stay away from the substance was to lead a healthy lifestyle. This included light exercise and healthy eating (organic fruit and vegetables, no red meat, plenty or water etc). I had no specific diet, I just tried to substitute everything bad in my life with something good, if I had a craving for a cigarette, I would prepare a meal to eat and take my mind off of it. That would lead to more cravings, as after a meal was when I enjoyed a cigarette the most! To counteract my craving, I went for a jog to remind myself why I wanted to quit in the first place. Has anyone else tried a similar method to attempt to kick an old habit? If so, how did it work for you?
