Keep your hands busy.

I buy a big thing of some kind of food that takes work to eat....peanuts in the shell, pistachios, etc.

Work your way down, it's much easier on you then cold turkey. And find candy that you have to suck on to occupy yourself.

Do not put yourself in a situation were itd be hard not to smoke. When i quit (3yrs ago) i had to stop drinking completely and not hangout/be around anyone who was a smoker. eventually i was able to go to a bar and have a drink without smoking a cigarette. Gl

Get cinnamon sticks....hold them like you would a cig...the cinnamon hits the same receptors in your brain as nicotine does,  so you help sooth those receptors, and you have the hand to mouth action that so many smokers find to be soothing....it helps me....I am now 30 days smoke free!!!  

Another thing that has helped me...is don't think of it as "quitting"...as most of us have been trained since childhood (in some cases infancy) to not be a "quitter"....so if you're thinking of it as quitting you are automatically setting your mind up to fight your efforts...instead tell yourself you are becoming a "non-smoker".

Im sorry, that is going to make it harder. I know because i had tried to quit several times before but i had roommates who smoked. I finally quit when i lived by myself, and i didnt get around my smoking friends for weeks
