Smoking in the morning

Do you reach for a cigarette when you first wake up? These tips can help you quit smoking in the morning.

How to stop smoking first thing in the morning and kick start a smoke free day.

Take note of your triggers

The first thing to do is take note of when you smoke a cigarette in the morning. Is it when you sit at the breakfast table, or is it on your way to work? If you know the triggers you can manage them.

Drink a glass of water

Instead of reaching for a cigarette, grab a glass of water and drink it all. You’ve made a tangible swap already, and you’ll be hydrating your body to reduce any cravings you might have.

Avoid that morning coffee

Caffeine can make you jittery and anxious, which in turn can make you reach for a cigarette. A coffee and a smoke might be natural for you. Quit both so you don’t associate one with the other.

Use your quit smoking tools

It’s much easier to avoid smoking in the morning using your quit smoking tools. Have them by your bed or wherever you normally have your first cigarette.

Exercise first thing

Exercise is a great way to change your morning routine, distract you from smoking and reduce your cravings. You don’t have to go to the gym, short blasts at home work just as well.

Have a plan in the morning

You might smoke when walking or driving to work in the morning. Get rid of cigarettes and lighters that are in your car, pocket or bag. Breaking the habit can help you quit that first cigarette.
