With the help of this forum and Champix, I quit smoking 5 years ago - anniversary was on Jan 19. I have to say that I hardly ever think of smoking anymore. The best tip I got about quitting smoking was from this forum - " we quit in the sub-conscious"- I think that was "Austinlegro's" great comment: once I fully grasped that the rest seemed relatively easy. This forum provided valuable support. I also found another alternative to get my "dopamine fix" - for me it was exercise. All the best to the new quitters out there.
