I am 26 and have been smoking now for almost 10 years but I want to quit. I drive school bus now and none of my co workers smoke and I hate leaving early to have that cigarette that I need so bad. I will take any advice you have to offer. Thank you!!!!

I know it is very tough to come out of a habit. But if you have the will power, you can definitely do it. I had one of my friends facing this problem for a long time. What he did was whenever he got a feeling to smoke, he used to put some chewing gum into his mouth until that feeling went away. But he couldnt resist much at the start, but later on he really made a habit of doing this with amazing levels of consistency. He was very patient in his approach and very different. You just have to keep yourself engaged with something else in order to avoid that feeling.. But the problem is now, he is addicted to chewing gum.. lol.. :))
