sno is exactly right. Drink lots of water, drink your tea, take Snack Defense.
One way I satisfy a craving is to indulge it in a shake! I love love LOVE peanut butter - so I use PB2 (a powdered peanut butter with significantly lower calories) in a chocolate shake. Or - make a mint chocolate chip shake and stick it in the freezer till it gets a bit of a chill on it, and eat it "like ice cream". Chocolate Raspberry shakes taste like Tootsie Roll to me. Have a Butterfinger shake.... the list goes on and on. Check out the shake recipe sticky here for some ideas, or just start experimenting with adding fruits, or some SF pudding, or Torani (or other brand) syrups, or extracts. The options are virtually limitless!

Define craving. If you are truly hungry, drink another shake or eat a protein bar. Your body is telling you to feed it. If your body isn't really hungry, but your mouth is or you are bored, drink your tea and take Snack Defense to curb your cravings for sweet or salty snacks. Get busy doing something else. The tea and water intake is important because sometimes we misinterpret thirst for hunger.
