Parties and other social settings are often triggers for smokers, especially when they are around friends who also smoke.
To beat your cravings at parties:
- Try hanging around your nonsmoker friends. Over time, turning down a cigarette will get easier.
- Practise saying “No thanks, I’m not a smoker.”
