firstly i agree with shan2nu, once you start its very difficult to stop.just eat a lot when ever you want a cig go get something to eat and have a lot of gum.it worked for a friend of mine and he hasnt had one for tha last 6 months after smokin a pack a day for two years before that.

and ported_head you right.there are more non somkers in these smoking threads than smokers lol..
