They think they need a cigarette to calm down, to stand the stress. There are also smokers who smoke their first cigarette regularly when they get out of bed. Just find out when you smoke and get started to switch to the next point.
Find alternatives of your ugly "smoky" behaviour! If you managed to find out the situations you always think of smoking, be prepared for alternatives. Always have a package of chewing gum or candy with you and grab them instead of a cigarette. I would suggest chewing gum, because it is better for your line.

If you stop smoking you smell much better. Not only your breath but also your clothes and your hair. Of course health should be one of the main targets to quit smoking. It will take a bit, but if you are smokeless for about 3 weeks, you feel that your condition will become much better than before.
