10 Ways to Resist Tobacco Cravings
- Delay. Most urges last 3-5 minutes.
- Avoid having ‘just one.’ More often than not, having just one leads to another.
- Get physical. Just 30 minutes of physical activity can make a tobacco craving go away. Exercise can also help relieve stress during the quitting process.
- Practice relaxation techniques. Breathe deeply, do yoga, get a massage or go for a walk.
- Remember the benefits of quitting. Write it down or say it out loud.
- Distract yourself. Take a break, read a magazine, or do something you enjoy that will take your mind off tobacco.
- Drink water. It can help flush nicotine out of your system.
- Call for support. Chat on the phone to get support from a friend or family member.
- Munch on it. Chew on nuts, carrot sticks or gum when an urge for tobacco hits instead.
- Prevent or manage triggers. Identify your trigger situations to better prepare yourself.

What is an E-cigarette?
Electronic cigarettes, or vapes, are battery-powered
devices that deliver nicotine and/or flavored liquid
through a vapor solution consisting of propylene glycol
(a mineral oil also used in antifreeze). They are similar
to cigarettes in shape, size and general appearance.
Many e-cigarettes are rechargeable and use
replacement cartridges or refill vials of vapor solution or
Is it safer than smoking cigarettes?
The safety and efficiency of e-cigarettes has not been
fully studied, so we cannot say whether or not they are
a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes. Since the Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate these
devices, there are many inconsistencies with quality
control processes used by manufacturers. In 2009, the
FDA found some cancer causing compounds in the
liquid of e-cigarettes. The FDA also found that levels of
nicotine in these products varied and often did not
match the amount listed on the product label.
Currently, more research is needed to determine both
the short-term and long-term effects of using these
Does it help people quit smoking?
Unlike nicotine patches and gum, e-cigarettes are not
approved by the FDA as an effective tool for smoking
cessation. Although some have successfully quit
smoking with the use of these devices, others still
continue smoking regular cigarettes. Additionally,
inconsistent nicotine levels among these products can
make cutting back more difficult as individuals may not
be able to accurately monitor their nicotine intake.
What about second hand vapor? Exhaled vapor is a mixture of water, propylene glycol,
nicotine, and some cancer-causing agents. Few studies
have tested the health effects of second hand vapor,
however, one study found that vapor increased the
amount of particulate matter in indoor air. This is
concerning because these fine particles can reach deep
into the lungs and potentially cause respiratory
irritation and difficulty breathing.
How might these products affect smoking rates?
E-cigarettes are gaining popularity on college campuses,
and students that wouldn’t otherwise smoke may be
more inclined to try these products. This could result in
nicotine dependence and lead to the use of
conventional cigarettes. Health officials are concerned
that e-cigarettes glamorize smoking, making it more
acceptable for young people to start using tobacco
products. According to the Centers for Disease Control,
76.3% of youth who used e-cigarettes within the past 30
days also smoked conventional cigarettes in the same
