Kick Some Ass
Don’t literally go an beat up someone, as much as you may actually want to when you’re going the withdrawals when you stop smoking. Instead, take martial art classes! According to the University of Miami, participants took tai chi classes for one hour, three times per week. After 12 weeks, and with no other formal cessation component, nearly 60 percent had stopped smoking. So why does this work? Smoking gives people a feeling of relaxation in the way they breathe. With tai chi, they breathe well and feel stronger, and they find that the conscious breathing and flow of movement also reduce stress.
