How can I avoid smoking when I drink?

ANSWER

It’s best to drink less or avoid drinking alcohol for the first 3 months after you quit. Booze is a common trigger for smoking, so drinking makes you less likely to stick to your new, smoke-free life. It helps to drink a lot of water and other nonalcoholic drinks when you try to quit.
