Hey, it is good and difficult question. Nowadays, there is a serious problem of smoking worldwide. I used to smoke myself for about 7 years and than I quit smoking. Every person finds it's own way to quit smoking. What can I say about this, on my own example, is that I, myself, found out that I don't like the smell of cigarettes no more. I can recommend you to start taking physical examinations and try to replace cigarettes with something else, for example carrots. If you can't imagine yourself with out smoke, try to use electronic cigarette at the first time. It is less harmful and it will help you to quit smoking forever.

Take all the cigarettes, throw them in the garbage and never buy.

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It takes at least 15 years.
Smoking cessation is the only remedy.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to an actual visit to a doctor.
Take care

My cousin used to be a chain smoker. He wanted to quit smoking after experiencing some health issues. He tried everything to quit. But could only do so after he started vaping. He has been vaping for a while now and is healthier than he used to be. Hoe this would help you too.

Think about trying some of these activities:
Exercise.
Get out of the house for a walk.
Chew gum or hard candy.
Keep your hands busy with a pen or toothpick, or play a game in the QuitGuide app.
Drink lots of water.
Relax with deep breathing.
Go to a movie.
Spend time with non-smoking friends and family.

The above tips are good and interesting, But it is hard to follow regularly for the chain smokers, i have experienced this with my friend (Smoker), for us it was very difficult to make him do all this activities regularly.

Try to smoke little, i would smoke mint flavored smoking instead of tobacco. There are medication available which helps to stop or reduce smoking habits.

Whenever I have the urge to smoke I just go and lay down on my bed or on a chair and starts taking long deep breathe until the urges stop on its own.
