Chop your hands off.
[ Not had a ciggi for 11 years - and boy I do get a craving every so often ]
Get a scary other half who can sniff tobacco smoke hours later. Worked for me without any other aids!
Quit with someone else..
Start exercising, it will be hard at first but within the first month you will notice how much more energy you have.
I gave up 10 years ago and it was the best move I ever made.
I used patches and followed the course at the required strength for the number of weeks on the packet. I/we had already banned smoking in the house and the car so that helped too as we weren't having visitors smoke in the house.
I found that what I needed to do was to try and avoid key smoking times and deliberately do something else instead, so, instead of going and having a ciggy as soon as I got up, I would go and make a cuppa and then go for a shower thus taking my mind off of what I would have been doing. Instead of having one straight after a meal, I'd go and wash up, again, avoiding that cigarette and also breaking up the habitual cigarette.
I also avoided situations whereby I would smoke lots ie the pub. I stopped going out for quite a while so avoided the urge to smoke in the pub (also helped save me some money).
I think the key here is that in order to give yourself the best chance, you need to make some key lifestyle changes (even if only temporary ... the pub).
You've made the first (and often hardest) move. Good luck, I promise you that you won't regret it.
Me and the other half gave up January 1st 2010 (New years resolution). We both had our last ones together at a new years eve party. It was tough for the first couple of months but neither of us have relapsed and we rarely think about it.
I found that not going outside at the pub helped, I also started playing 6-a-side 2-3 times a week.
We also quit without any help (patches or otherwise). We just went cold turkey, that was hard.
It will be tough, at times it will be awful but it gets easier every day, I promise.
In the first week count the hours and not the days since the last one. Just think to yourself I have managed ie 6 hours if I really want one I will wait another hour and so on. BUT you don't have have it
I gave up smoking 5 years ago, I used patches but quit in 6 weeks, 2 weeks at each strength of patch.
I used sugar free polos to aid me, every time I felt like a cig I would have a polo intead, once you quit the polos are easy to kick.
5 years later I feel as if I have never wanted a cig, I don't get any cravings, not even if I stand next to someone who is smoking.
Get a crack pipe and start on that instead, you'll be off tobacco in no time!
