Things like Laughing, Exercise, Sex, Sports, and even chocolate. All of these can release the same amount of dopamine into your system as one cigarette. The alternatives are a lot better than the previous ones.

Adrenaline is the other aspect of cigarettes that is released. However, how can your body use adrenaline easily when you can’t breathe to enjoy it? That is the dilemma. However, there are things that you can do boost your adrenaline without having a cigarette. A simple cup of coffee can help boost your energy. A brisk walk around the court yard or building can help you increase the adrenaline. All of these things can help you get the boost you need to get through the craving.
