Habits, triggers and knowing of them is a cornerstone on stopping.
My mom smoked 2 cigarettes a day. One after lunch and one after supper. But she enjoyed both. Most smokers only enjoy a few a day but puff, puff, puff on a bunch more. Why?
Habits and triggers mostly. Coffee was my sisters first trigger of the day so she switched to green tea. Her morning commute was another, which she said was the hardest one to over come. That was a habit. She started out using nicotine losenges on her ride to work with success. She stopped about 15 year ago and still does a losenge after lunch and after supper. Her husbands first trigger of the day was a shower. Yes a shower. He said he smoked at least 2 in the shower. How? Got me but he said that was the hardest habit to break.

A coworker told me he stopped smoking in 1974 but still wants one at certain times like while having a glass of beer after cutting grass.

I still smoke some but not after meals, nor with coffee. Not anymore. Used to be when working indoors I'd light up as soon as I went outside but not anymore. My achilies heel is while carrying on a conversation around other smokers. So I make sure I have to walk at least 50 yards to obtain a cigarette. I take a puff or two off a vape on occasion like when driving. A 1.5 ml tank lasts about 2 months.
