    Quit chewing (even more difficult) using Nicorette lozenges (and then gum when lozenges went off market). If you're really motivated to quit, the gum helps a lot- you get hooked on the gum for its nicotine, but you can taper off using normal gum and be an ex smoker though.

    Cut one out a day, every week. That'll help when you eventually give them up altogether.

    Set a date 2 months from now. Tell yourself every time you light a cig that you are quitting that day. Tell yourself that when you wake up, when you go to bed, when you're driving down the road. Tell yourself that 100 times a day. You'll be ready to quit when that day comes.

    That's what I did 22 years ago. I put them down and never picked them back up.

    quit cold turkey 20 years ago. You just have to want to quit. The problem is, most people lack the willpower to do so.

    I used to only smoke when I drank. I started to smoke daily when I started doing coke. I smoke a pack a day when I'm not high. I can smoke 5-6 packs within 24 hours when I'm high.

    I smoked a pack a day for over 25 years.

    This year, I got a Vaporizer and was able to quit smoking using that. Worked for me like a boss. I have not had one cigarette this year.

    Prior to attempting to quit this year, I had given up hope, I had no idea how I would do it. The vaporizer took the place of the cigarette (the physical part of it), and I weened myself off the nicotine from 24mg, stepping down 6mg each step. By March, I had cut all nicotine out of my system.
