I was racking my brain, googled and remembered Garcinia Cambogia being something I read about.

Hmmm... I also remember isolated Tyrosine doses being used as treatment for substance addiction / abuse. Let me see what I can dig up... more to follow.
Also, you may consider a running a detox product to help clear your system of existing toxins and carcinogens. This may also help to more rapidly diminish those nasty nicotine cravings.

Needed to quit smoking:
- a firm and *clear* intent;
- the discipline to pursue that intent come what may;
- the flexibility to adapt, improvise, and overcome the resistance you'll encounter (internal *and* external)
Without those, all the rest is bu11sh!t - nothing will help you do what you're unwilling or unprepared to do for yourself.
That said, there're plenty of avenues available to you in this game; it's just simple truth that the game is more mental and emotional than physical, and you need to plan, prepare, and eopn to opportunity. First step (and it's a biggie) is to change your smoking from an habitual behaviour to an active choice.
Sorry to break this off, but I've got a my plate very full at the mo - I'll be back soon w/ more thoughts. BTW - my remarks are based on stopping smoking after 35 years.

You have to first stop thinking about stopping smoking.
Think about having the choice to keep your lungs clean.
Change the way you think about smoking. Think about all the bad things that happen when you smoke. Each time you take a drag think about what the smoke is doing to your body.
Watch the movie "The Insider" or "Thank You for Smoking".
Find something to hold in your hand and put in your mouth, other than food, that can sub for tobacco.

I am about to start Chantix once it arrives. I read on other boards about guys using it and it seems really interesting and successful. Good luck on your quest!

people try to find all these things to try to make them quit smoking.
From all the people i know that quit smoking, the only thing that works is.. you really have to not want to smoke anymore.
You have to care about your health and just stop for the right reasons. Otherwise you will make excuses and have one cig here and another there and before you know it your back again.
Just reach down grab your balls and say i quit FCK YOU marlboro man!
Its kind of like anything else in life. I like to compare it to lifting weights. People try all these "cutting edge supplements" and all these supper detailed diets and they dont even have the basics down. Which is get your ass in the gym, train hard, eat, and pray before you sleep. You just got to do it and thats it.
You just have to be strong and really want to quit. Then just do it!!!

There are a number of herbs that can help you break the habit. I searched the web and found that these would help:
Oregon Grape Root
I think these were mentioned by someone previously already. Another alternative is the use of supplements that can help you detoxify and lower your dependence on nicotine. I found an over-the-counter (I think) medicine in the internet called Ampheta-Restore. I've been looking into it, and saw that it helps such addictions. So I guess it's something you can try.
I hope this helps.

I have been quit for 4 months. I set a "Hell or high water date." No matter how many cigs I have left or what happens, I'm quitting on this date. I told all my facebook friends I was quitting on said date. I got some nicotine lozenges. They taste awful but do the trick. I didnt get addicted to they cause they make my throat hurt. Then I logged my progress on Facebook. All my friends chimed in and supported me. It was great. You could put your stop smoking log on here or FB or both. I hope this helps. Call a near by hospital and ask if you can volunteer in respiratory therapy for a day. That ought to scare the crap out of you. You can Beat this Bro!
Everything I say is fictional and for entertainment purposes only. Do not ask me for sources. I dont have any.

i use to smoke alot when i was younger, and if you love to smoke but really wanna kick it this is what you have 2 do listen carefully.
your more than likely gonna fail if u try to quite cold turkey, limit your self to 4 cigs per day for about 1 week, next week limit ur self to 3 cigs a day, next 2 then so on.
once you start smoking 1 cig a day ithink youll realize that it doesnt taste good and it makes you feel a little "used up ". just think if someone is trying to kill your Girl and shes running from someone and you cant keep up because you smoke 2 many dam cigs, pretty sad.
ive done this and once i got to my 1 cig. a week, that was it, now listen to this, once you reach 2-3 weeks without a single cig. if u just so happen to smoke one, youll prob wont think its that great. be patient its a tough one to drop. avoid drinking as much as possible because it will make you want to smoke.
and one more thing, youll always get the thought in your head "smoke one smoke one" but if u just think about how much crap its givving you and your not getting nothing in return but tar, itll be easier.

1) Don't set a date to quit
2) Drink 1gallon+ water a day
3) don't talk to yourself in your head trying to convince yourself 1 will be okay.
4) if you are about to smoke agian remind yourself of the reason your trying to quit in the first place.. all the progress you made will be wasted. do you really want to start all over?
5) remind yourself that your actions today affect you tomorrow
It has been 2 weeks for me since i last smoked. trying cold turkey. Almost smoked last night cause my pops went into the hospital.. but i didn't and im ok now

i know i will get some hate for this, but, i stopped smoking instantly after smoking a pack a day for like 7 months.
i stopped smoking, and started using smokeless tobacco, and while it is not an absolute safe alternative, you will get your lungs back. i understand smokeless tobacco has arsenic,formaldehyde, and polonium ( thanks bodybuilding.com guy ). however, this will take away almost all of your craving for smoking completely. take it from me, i LOVE(d) smoking.
i suggest just dipping a couple times a day. then ween yourself off of dip.
For me, the action IS the juice.
