Staying hydrated is a good call, especially when you’re feeling high and like you want to eat something caloric. Aside from giving your body something to do, you’ll also prevent cotton mouth and keep your body hydrated when smoking, something that is very necessary and easy to forget.

Stock up on healthy snacks

Another smart thing to do when the munchies hit would be to make sure there are healthy snacks in your home. This way, when the munchies hit, you can feed yourself something healthy and enjoyable. Make sure to purchase stuff you like and approach your munchies with consciously. While they might feel out of your control, by having some patience and fortitude, the urge to eat will pass.

Do something engaging

Keeping yourself distracted with something engaging might also help you fight the munchies. Go for a walk if you’re feeling particularly hungry or put on a very engaging movie that’ll help you stay distracted. Smoking outdoors is also a good option, providing you with plenty of stimuli that will make your stomach feel less important.


Apply the 10-minute rule

Munching can become compulsive; the habit reinforces itself every time you fall for it. Giving your body 10 minutes to calm down and to understand what’s going on underneath might help you get things straight, all while controlling your high. Set a timer for 10 minutes and question the nature of the munchies, whether you’re hungry or not, and if whatever it is you’re craving is truly worth the hassle. By the time your alarm rings you’ll be more clear-headed and better equipped to make decisions.
