I recently talked to Tonya Hinders, who told me, “My son asked me this morning, ‘Mommy, why do you want to die?’ That’s when I knew it was time to quit.”
Tonya has now been cigarette free for seven days. Her physical addiction to nicotine is all but gone. She only has to overcome her cue induced cravings now.
“It’s a waste to pay for something that is going to kill you,” Tonya said. “I need to buy stock in Tic-Tacs now.”
Keeping yourself busy with something as simple as Tic-Tacs is a great ploy for distraction. It can take your mind off the need to hold and puff a cigarette. Even something this simple can throw off the routine of a cigarette after a meal or lighting up when you sit down in your car.
