From my own personal experience, quitting smoking before the invention of cigarettes was a nightmare. I once managed in my twenties to quit for 2 weeks but as soon as i was with someone smoking that smell just made me give in to the cravings. Even during them 2 weeks, every morning, every coffee and every meal was a mental battle. That's not even factoring in any stress or any visits down to the pub.
