I have recently quit smoking and everytime I am around someone who smokes and it makes me want one. How can I curb the yearn for one?

In brief: TIme
People who quit frequently report that the craving lasts for a year. Recognize that and do your best to not restart.
After awhile (up to a year) you will lose the craving and actually do everything you can to get away from smokers.

In brief: Consult your DOC
There are many options to help you quit.
It is great that you've chosen to quit but get all the support. I would recommend consulting with your primary care physician.
