My experience was catching myself going a long period without a cigarette. I got so caught up with a fun activity that I went about 12 hrs without realizing i didnt have a cigarette or even think about it.

So try to spend time around non-smokers, then when you get distracted enough and you realize you went x long without a cig try to keep that streak going.

Its a mind trick, sort of like cheating for a head start.

That was nearly 10 years ago, so that 12 hr period has literally turned into 10 years completely smoke free. (not counting occasion ganja use)
