Having a smoke after lunch or dinner is a routine for many smokers.
The best way to break down these cravings is do something different, straight after a meal:
- Read a newspaper or magazine.
- Brush your teeth.
- Go for a quick walk.
It might take a few tries to find what works – don’t give up!
How do you break down your after-meal cravings?

I removed myself from places where I thought I would be tempted. Changed routine. I am now 17 months smoke free!!!

After dinner I go straight and brush my teeth... helps me avoid eating dessert too.

I have gum or a mint as soon as I’ve finished eating.
