The thought of not being able to have a cigarette during your flight can be a concern for many and sitting still for hours on end with cigarette cravings is not ideal for a safe and pleasant flight, especially if you are on a cheap flight with little leg room and no frills. If this rings true for you then try one of these great ways to prevent cigarette cravings on a flight.
1. – Steer clear of the Shiraz
As tempting as it may be to relax with a drink, the alcohol will most likely increase those cravings so it is probably best to avoid the bar rather than drink away the cravings. Neither option will end with you feeling great.
2. – Gum and Patches
Load up on the nicotine gum and patches for your flight to help curb the cigarette cravings. The patches may be the more socially friendly option if you are a loud gum-chewer.
3. – Electronic Cigarettes
Yes you may look a little strange but consider the cravings and purchase yourself an electronic cigarette. They are not widely common on planes yet so it is probably best to explain to the person next to you what it is, or get up and head towards a better space on the plane (if there is one) in order to inhale your nicotine.
4. – Play some games
If your flight has seat back tv’s which will allow you to play a few games then this will be your savour. Once you get started on Mahjong you can often find yourself at your destination 8 hours later. The more addictive the game, the more involved you will get and curb those cigarette cravings.
5. – Consider your interests
Boredom leads to cravings so consider this before you fly. Check out what films are showing on your flight so you know which ones to watch, or if you are on a no-frills flight take something to read or work on that will keep you interested and busy. Don’t leave that really boring work task you have been putting off to the flight home.
