The only answer to your problem is for yourself to attend a self help group of personnel in your area to start Quitting the smoking habit as it provides better will power to you.
.Whenever you start the craving kindly substitute the same with a chewable Vitamin Tab/Chocolate.Even if you are very badly addicted, you may request a trusted doctor for a substitute of Nicotine Patch/Chewing Gum with Nicotine content.
Gradually reduce the no of Nicotine Substitute/taper and finally quit the habit.
Consult a Psychiatryst and also a physician for systemic Examination and routine investigations for your treatment for the present condition also in addition to above measures.
Daily regular workouts and Excercises also reduce your cravings for Smoking.
