Quit Q&A

Why does coffee make me want to smoke?

For many people, coffee is strongly associated with smoking. If this is true for you, try changing your coffee drinking routine. Sit in a different chair or room, or take your coffee differently. Changing your coffee mug may help, too. While you drink coffee do something different than you usually do; you could try reading quit-smoking literature, for example. When you quit smoking, you should cut back on your caffeine intake since caffeine's metabolism changes and you will have higher blood levels if you drink the same amount. Some people choose to switch to another hot beverage and avoid drinking coffee altogether in the early days of quitting.
