Perhaps helpful to mention the possibility of transitioning to e-cigarettes, use them for a while, and then move on to quitting smoking in any form.
That's what a cousin of mine (a fellow a bit younger than me) did, and he claims that it worked for him.
He noted that the kind of e-cig that he used allowed him to decrease gradually over time the amount of nicotine in the thing, which he found helpful. He was able to detach from the nicotine at his own rate.
Of course e-cigarettes have their own controversy, and apparently they are "safer but not exactly safe."
There are lots of articles on the web about
them, of course, so it should be easy to find and read about
them if one is interested.
E-cigs are likely one of those things that aren't for everybody, but at least worth mention, since apparently they do work for some.
