Other Tips for Helping You to Give Up Smoking
Keeping fit and healthy with regular exercise is the best way to help lift your mood and avoid weight gain after giving up smoking. For example, you could wear a pedometer and aim to walk 10,000 steps a day. If you cannot manage this at first, increase the amount you walk each day until you achieve the target.
Many people worry about putting on weight when they stop smoking. By eating a healthy diet of fresh fruit and vegetables, you will ensure that you do not put weight on. Simple changes such as eating wholegrain toast for breakfast instead of white bread will maintain your energy levels throughout the morning. Drinking the recommended amount of water per day (approximately 2 litres or 8 glasses) will also help to clear toxins from your system.
Consider vitamins and/or mineral supplements
Consider taking multivitamins and mineral supplements to aid your route back to having a healthy body. As some smokers tend to skip meals or may be struggling to stick to a healthy diet to begin with, a supplement could help to support your nutrient intake.
Save the money that you would have spent on cigarettes and treat yourself with this every week that you stay smoke free. You could go for a nice meal - remember after less than a week, your sense of taste and smell will have improved considerably.
