Tools for Quitting

At CSUSB, we recognize that the act of quitting smoking can seem intimidating. Thus, we compiled a list of low cost and no cost tools to assist those who choose to quit smoking.

No Cost

Daily Meditation

Recent studies have shown that those who use meditation as a tool to help them quit smoking, have a higher success rate.

Practice meditation and mindful breathing:

  1. Reduces a person's stress levels, which is a common trigger for smoking.
  2. Teaches individuals to be mindful of their smoking habits and cravings.
  3. Increases an individual's self-control and willpower to quit.

Monday—Friday, 11:30AM and 12noon at Counseling and Psychological Services, Room 166

Physical Activity

Research reveals that exercise has been known to reduce many of the negative experiences that accompany quitting, such as cigarette cravings, withdrawal symptoms, negative mood states and weight gain.

Exercise at Recreation & Wellness Center

Classrooms are located on the second floor of the Studen Recreation Wellness Center. Each class will be 1 hour. All classes are FREE with membership unless noted otherwise.
