25. Don't ever tell anyone you are quitting.
If anyone asks, tell them you have cut back. Don't tell them you have cut back to one or two a year.
If you end up having a cigerette, it is allowed under your strict quota and does not mean you have failed.

All the times I tried to quit, I found the people who "policed" my relapses caused me to be defiant and want to smoke even more. I think it has been nearly ten years since my last cig, but I have not quit, I have just cut back. I am still a smoker, I have been for the past thirty years. I don't care for one right now, thank you.

I also bought a white couch and wouldn't smoke in the same room with it. Then I got a new car and wouldn't smoke in it. I guess I made up the rules as I went along and didn't let someone else tell me what I had to do.
