Besides that, he should also try to seek out low-fat options that look appetizing and drink more water to lessen the urge of lighting up a cig.

In addition, research at the University of Exeter in the UK suggest that exercise triggers changes in brain activity. In that study, smokers who cycled at a moderate pace had fewer cravings after abstaining from nicotine for 15 hours, as measured by MRI reaction to cigarette images, than non-cyclers.
