You also have to be careful in avoiding/reducing consumption of some foods when trying to quit (or at least trying to flush out nicotine from your body). First of them is Meat as it make cigarettes taste better.

Spicy/sweet foods are also known to enhance cravings including Jalapeno, Mexican/Indian/Thai food, cakes, cookies, ice cream etc. Also, try avoiding food that you associate with smoking. For example, some smokers enjoy their cigarette the most after having a cup of tea. And they usually always smoke after drinking tea. It’s better to drink Green Tea instead to break the association formed over time. Associations are also often formed with specific places, people or time.
