Smoking cessation...: There are many different smoking cessation methods, all with variable success. One key component is to replace the smoking habit with another habit-decide ahead of time what you are going to do when you feel like smoking, besides smoking. Then, pick a quit date and let those around you know so they will support you. Any method will then have a higher success rate-pick one you can commit to.
