Eat a well-balanced diet.Treats are fine, but be careful not to go overboard with them during nicotine withdrawal. Your body is working hard to expel toxins, which takes energy. Choose foods that will provide you with the high quality fuel you need. Avoid the empty calories of junk food.
Take a multivitamin.Smoking depletes our bodies of nutrients. Give yourself a boost with the help of a multivitamin. This, combined with good diet, will help you minimize the fatigue that can often occur during nicotine withdrawal.
