Helping quit smoking.

I am 22 years old and have smoked since I was at least 16 years old. I remember smoking with old friends and having smokes alone. I remember the feeling of smoking before it was legal. It felt awesome. But now that I'm old I cough up yellow/brown stuff and have a swore throat all the time. I feel like smoking has taken hold of me and not me of it. What can I do to stop? Why is there no treatment for it like with alchohol or drugs? With meetings and such? I heard the stop smoking drugs cause suicide and I can see why. When I try to stop it feels like I will die. I have stoped for like short periods before but I want to not. I'm scared when I'm not smoking. Scared of smoking. I'm getting sick. Everyone I know is a smoker and helps me smoke more. I live with a smoker.My mother is a smoker for her whole life, everyone in my family is. What can I do? I really think I will die from it if I keep smoking. In my state they have uped the Tax to try and encurage people to quit. Instead they are taking advantage of people who have a problem. It is a really sick thing to do. I'm poor from it as well. I want to save my money buy new cloths and shoes. I want a car. I want to enjoy spending my money and not worry about what I will eat because I bought a $9 pack of cigs with a $2 lighter. help me plz I am suffering.
