Detailed Answer:
Hi,

First try to avoid the situations that you smoke and the friends whom you take along to smoke with.
As far as possible try to be in catchy situations where yu are not allowed to smoke.
Suppose you have strong eager to smoke, pop in nicotine chewing gum that will fulfill your urge.
Do not wear the same clothes everyday and try to wash them that smells tobacco.
Announce it to every one esp the dear ones that you are quitting it.
Medications are available in India a Psychiatrist or Internal Medicine doctor in your area can prescribe you effective medicine.
Finally it is all your will that can help you quit.
Smoking causes cancer, impotence, heart disease, infertility.

Hope this helps.
