At 4NX, we understand that nicotine cravings are difficult to resist, so we created a few ideas to aid you in your journey. To start with, let’s eliminate what you shouldn’t do if you’re looking to quit cigarettes for good.

Don’t Use Tobacco Products

Smoking alternatives like tobacco pouches aren’t very effective due to their numerous drawbacks, such as the following:

  • Significant health risks (such as cancer).
  • You have to spit the tobacco out.
  • Not very discreet.
  • Stains teeth.
  • Unpleasant odour.

Any products containing tobacco are best avoided. Instead, consider these alternatives:

Chew on Something

Find something you can mindlessly chew on, such as candy or gum - preferably sugar-free options to make sure you don’t rot your teeth. Don’t trade one addiction for another!

An ultra healthy option is cucumber or carrot sticks to provide you nutrients as well as a satisfying crunch.


Vape E-Liquids contain nicotine to satisfy intense cravings and have become increasingly popular in recent years. However, they have disadvantages to consider too, such as:

  • Clouds of vapour are quite obstructive in public situations.
  • Vaping isn’t very discreet.
  • Vape devices can be fiddly and inconvenient.
  • Many restrictions exist on where you can vape.

If you want to satisfy nicotine cravings with a vape in a public setting, most of the time, you’ll be allowed to vape in a smoking area but being surrounded by secondhand smoke defeats the point of quitting in the first place.

For these reasons, nicotine pouches might actually be better than vaping for quitting smoking. With no risk of being tempted by secondhand smoke, you can place a pouch under your upper lip to sate cravings anywhere, any time.

Use Nicotine Pouches

Nicotine pouches are the ideal solution to help you quit smoking, providing a sugar-free, tobacco-free, smoke-free and vapour-free nicotine hit.

Slim and compact, our tobacco-free pouches offer discretion and convenience. Whether you’re a light, medium, or heavy smoker, our pouches are available in 6mg, 10mg, 12mg and 18mg strengths, allowing you to choose the right amount of nicotine for you.

In addition, they come in a range of fun and potent flavours, from mint infused raspberry to refreshing and juicy watermelon. Best of all, nicotine pouches can be combined with other activities - like light exercise - for the ultimate distraction method.


Woman about to exercise

It’s true what they say; exercise is good for the mind and body! The rush of endorphins you get from a workout is an excellent way of both distracting yourself from cravings and giving you a boost to your mood.

There are many gentle exercises to help you overcome the urge to light up a cigarette, including:

  • Yoga
  • Walking
  • Jogging
  • Doing housework

Doing an hour or even half an hour of exercise every day will stabilise your mind. Conveniently, 4NX nicotine pouches last for 30 minutes, meaning you can easily pop one under your top lip as you go for a nature walk.
