In brief: Many ways to stop

The most important thing is a strong desire to quit.
There are many strategies to help, from nicotine patches/gum & various pharmaceutical meds to acupuncture & hypnosis. Exercise & relaxation helps.

Almost all cigarettes have dozens of added chemicals from sugar to formaldehyde that increase their addictiveness, so step one is switching to smoking pure tobacco, like American Spirit brand, or roll your own. One advantage to rolling your own is you can add other herbs to the tobacco, like Mullein, Lobelia, Sage, Calendula, Red Raspberry, Nettle & Hops, gradually increasing the ration of herbs to tobacco.

In brief: Determination

Develop a plan before you stop smoking.
Chose a date that you plan to stop. Let your friends & family know so that they can support you. Get rid of cigarettes, lighters, ashtrays etc. Stay away from people who are smoking so that it won't trigger the urge to smoke. Consider using a smoking cessation App, a quitline, smokefree TXT or joining a support group. Medications can also be used.
