    I'm a professional Counselor and behavior change consultant.

    One of the best ways to quit smoking is through gradual reduction, combined with replacing smoking with other more healthy but enjoyable behaviors.

    For example, if you do relapse, now that you are at close to the 4 hour point, you could have one every 4 hours for a 2 days and then have one very 5 hours for 2 days and then one every 6 hours for 2 days.

    Also, you can make a list of things that you enjoy doing and that are healthier than smoking, like going for a walk, reading a good book, - a great strategy is to replace smoking with an exercise program (exchanging a negative for a positive addiction).

    One of the best approaches for really quitting smoking, with out drugs is called cognitive behavioral relapse prevention. Originally developed for alcohol addiction it's now applied for every kind of addictive behavior including smoking:

    Also, try practicing and mastering "the relaxation response" every-time you want to smoke:
