How do I keep my hands busy?

Keeping your hands busy can be really helpful when quitting smoking. Think of things you can do with your hands, like washing the dishes, journaling, drawing, straightening up a room, or cleaning the car. Some people pick up an old hobby, like building models, crocheting, or doing jigsaw puzzles. Try squeezing a stress ball as a way to release tension. Consider starting a long term project, like painting a room or building something. This will keep you occupied for days or weeks so you won't be thinking about cigarettes. Remember, you can always come to QuitNet - where you can keep your hands busy!
