First thing, make sure when you go to bed tonight that you do not have any more smokes. When I quit, I still had almost a full pack left. I ran them under the sink and threw them out before I went to bed.
I chewed on straws to help get over the oral fixation/action of smoking. It seems strange to say, but you'll find that there will be times when you just won't know what to do with your hands and whatnot because you're used to the action of smoking a cig.
Avoid triggers. I dramatically cut down on my coffee intake. I'd still have my cup or two in the morning to get going, but I didn't drink as much outside of that. I also almost completely stopped drinking the first month. I'd still have a beer or two every so often, but I avoided getting drunk. Alcohol not only was a trigger, but it also destroys your judgement. The, "I'll just have this one," becomes a lot more easy to justify after a bunch of beers.
Something else that I found helped me is that when I talked about quitting with other people (and in my head too), I said that I quit smoking, not that I was quitting or trying to quit. By saying that, it didn't allow for the possibility of failure, where "trying" to quit does.
Hope any of that helps/
Before that I tried the patch, but I had crazy dreams, and after a while I actually started craving the patch more than the actual cigarette...crazy but true....also, whenever I drink, I actually smoke less....I know it's weird, but alcohol makes me want one less. Anyway, I guess what I'm trying to say is, find what method suits you best, burner and nygfan, no matter how bizarre, and try to stick with it.
Also, I've had plenty of "last ones"....so if you don't make it, keep on trying...;)
Thank laurah and Drez!!
