Break The Routine
“I think the challenge really for me was breaking the habit. One of the reasons I’m really happy to be partnering with Nicorette and Nicoderm CQ is that Nicorette gum was a tool that helped me because that help really stave off the cravings to physically smoke, but I still have to make other changes in life at the same time. So I started running and I changed up parts of my home,” said Berkus.

One change the designer made was to break up the ceremony behind his smoking habit.

“Initially, drinking wine at home at the dining room table was something I would like to do with a cigarette. So I would get up and move into a room that had a lot of upholstery because I didn’t want that to smell,” remembers Berkus.
