While you’re removing all the negatives from your life, fill the void left behind with positive people and hobbies. Think about your funniest, most caring friends and ask them to lunch next weekend. Or, help yourself to stop obsessing with those cigarettes you’re giving up by keeping a journal of positivity. Every time you get the craving to smoke, head to your journal to jot in everything you’re thankful for in your life. You can also take up new hobbies like hiking, running, weight-lifting or yoga.
