This my friend came from Europe. He is an avid smoker but during the dinner he said he was trying to quit smoking. I said all the encouraging words I had. Next day, he smoked 12 cigarettes. I encouraged him to cut it down to 8 next day. Well, he ended up smoking 9. Still, I was happy that the number had gone down. Next day, I hoped he would succeed to bring the number down to 6 or 7. But, I was sad to know that he had bought two packets of cigarettes from the nearby shop and smoked all of them! This afternoon, I asked him how many he smoked today. He answered he had given up counting! Why do you think he gave up trying to quit smoking?

I think he might just be stressed out, and he should try taking it slower. Nicotine is simply addictive, and it's not easy to quit. I also think, its because your encouraging words weren't inspiration to quit, they were simply temporary motivation. He needs a real reason to quit, because he won't quit for himself.
