Are you stuck in a pattern at work? Do you take a regular smoko as part of your standard workday routine? The workplace is a common place for triggers because smokers often take a smoking break at the same time, with the same people.
By breaking the habit you can start breaking down the craving. Instead of scheduling in another smoko, why not:
- Organise an exercise session with your colleagues.
- Listen to some music instead.
- Grab a healthy snack or drink of water.
What do you do to help avoid the work break triggers?
