Story #7: “My sleep schedule is all off since quitting tobacco.”

Story #7: Before I quit, vaping was a part of my nightly routine to help me decompress before I went to sleep. What are safer ways to help me wind down so I can fall asleep?

 

Plan:

  • You’re on the right track. Keep in mind that nicotine disrupts sleep, so you’re already off to a great start!
  • Try something new. Listen to soothing music, read or take a warm shower before bed.
  • Set yourself up for success. Stay away from alcohol and caffeine for at least a few hours before going to sleep.
  • Ask for help. If problems continue, talk to your health care provider just in case there is something else affecting your sleep that a professional can help you with.
