Try just going outside? I'm assuming you can't smoke at your desk, and so you have to go outside to do it? I found one of the most unfair things about not smoking is that non-smokers are not afforded the same breaks as smokers. While a smoker can get away from work, go outside and have a cigarette and relax, the same is not true for non-smokers. Take that back for yourself. Take the five minutes, even if you're not smoking, and go outside. Get up, get away from your desk and just lean against the wall outside. If you have an office, shut the door, and mute the phone so it doesn't ring. Sometimes what we need is just to get away, even if it's just for a few minutes so we can think, breathe, and get ourselves back to center.
Good luck with quitting smoking!!
