When do you smoke? Do you smoke when you find yourself getting sleepy
or having difficulty concentrating, such as:
After the effects of your morning coffee start to
Close to mealtime?
After you've been sitting
still for a long time?
Sometimes people smoke to help them get focused or stay alert. The
nicotine in tobacco products is usually enough to jump-start your brain. But
it's no replacement for getting enough sleep, eating well, exercising, and
enjoying your life.
