Many people have found that including physical activity in their program to quit smoking has added a tremendous benefit to assist in quitting.
There are many reasons for this:
- When people are more active, they gain confidence and like themselves more.
- They feel more energy, and are more capable of dealing with tension in their lives. With increased activity, the smell of tobacco actually becomes offensive.
- Whenever you feel the need to smoke after you have decided to quit, get up and move around instead.
- A brief physical activity can provide you with the lift that you may have received from nicotine.
