    Get someone close to you to take possession of your cigarrettes and only allow them to give them to you say one a day then once every 2 days then every 3 days and so on until gradually you lose the addiction without going through horrible withdrawls would be my advice. Also try praying to God!

    Hope that helps and good luck quitting smoking!

    Nicotine lozenges help but as soon as I run out I start smoking again.....maybe you should give it a shot.

    I've quit for 8 months now. I did cold turkey but had it all planned out by figuring out what my triggers were. I made sure I avoided my triggers for about 2 months. When I had withdrawals, I'd either take a cold shower, jog, sleep, or blast my music to deafening levels.

    Also, try to avoid stress. I pretty much avoided activities and situations that would tempt me to light up until I knew for sure I could keep my composure.

    1. Use the patch AND the gum, and stock up so you don't run out. Do it religiously and without fail, even if the patch breaks you out and makes you itch, just do it. Patch up and chew yourself a big ol wad of nicorette and make sure you have enough supply for at least two months.

    2. Don't give up. It can take several attempts before you're actually able to quit for good. Don't give up on the idea that you can quit. If you start smoking again, start quitting again, too. Do it as long as you can; as soon as you are able, do it as long as you can do it again; proceed, gaining time not smoking as you go. Eventually you will let go of it.

    think of something to disgust you about it daily. watch those horrid truth campaigns.
    after it leaves your body...you can can do it. you can control the mental part if you really want to. imagine yourself with a tracheotomy.

    It took me three tries. Finally, I went cold turkey and never looked back.

    Just resolve to do it. It's ok to fail and try again.
