Although I still socially smoke, and have the odd one throughout the week, I managed to kick the actual addiction thanks to the Niquitin QuickMist mouthspray.

 

Despite not stopping (only because I enjoy having one from time to time), I managed to change the way I smoked.

 

By this I meant that I showed myself that I DON'T need to be a slave to the addiction. I can happily do for weeks without one now :)

 

I personally think that 99% of stopping smoking is phycological as opposed to physical. The psycological side of it augments the physical addiction.

 

A good example is, when I smoked, I always had a pack around. When I ran out, and ONLY then, the craving got 10x worse.

Funny you should mention that. someone I know quit cold turkey after 40 years, but for the first year after if stopped he kept a carton of 200 in the boot of his car. he said that he didn't mind not smoking as long as he knew they were there if he wanted one. after a year, he chucked them.
