Cold Turkey Contest: Day 5

Hey Quitters, 

It's now Day 5 of the 7 Day Challenge. Congrats, you're over the hump, but there is still a couple days to go.

To get you through the next few days and beyond, here are our top tricks for beating cravings:

  1. Keep yourself distracted. Cravings only last a couple minutes, so you just need to find away to focus on anything else. A quick burst of exercise, a game on your phone, whatever works for you.

  2. Chew your way through it. Keep your mouth busy by chewing on some gum, a toothpicks, or eating some sunflower seeds.

  3. Drink some water. A cold glass of water does wonders to suppress cravings and keep you feeling refreshed.  

  4. Take some deep breaths. Close your eyes and breathe in slowly for a count of three and exhale for a count of three. Repeat until you feel yourself relax and the craving lift. 

  5. Talk it out. Never under estimate the power of a little support. Talk to a Quit Coach or meet other quitters over in our Community Forum.

Wishing you all the best in the contest and in your quit!
