I quit smoking... poo poo, it must be over two years now, I know it was in february but I don't remember which february.

Anyhow, the method that finally worked for me was the "Sickness and poverty" method--I got bronchitis that lasted for a week and then I was broke for another two weeks. By that point, I had been off long enough that my willpower easily overcame the urge to smoke (and when I gave in to the urge, I couldn't tolerate the smoke anymore).

I quit smoking about two years ago, mostly with the help of the "sickness and poverty" method (I was too broke to buy cigarettes and had the flu for a week and a half, which was long enough to get me over the initial cravings)

Here are some tips I used to help me cut down before I finally quit:

Don't do anything else while you're smoking. When you have a cigarette, don't do it while doing anything else.

Make yourself jump through hoops to get your cigarettes. What I did was I would buy a pack and give them to my friend who also smoked, so that I had to go through her if I wanted a cigarette.

Don't finish your cigarettes, only smoke just enough to satisfy your craving and trash the rest.

I need to quit (the illegal stuff)

I ran out on the 5th or so this month (I explained this in some other thread), and I have no intention of buying any more anytime soon

how can I convince myself to give it up forever?
Why?

I have to agree with the Get Sick method.
Even more effective: the Get Sick And Also Have No Money method

I really really wish someone would develop a strain of cannabis that tasted good and smoked smooth but didn't get you high.

I would much rather ditch cigarettes for weed, but weed is like kryptonite to me.
