Snowpaws, ehm. The very first step in successfully stopping smoking is to throw away everything you have that is used to or reminds you of smoking. If you still own a pipe (a pipe in the 21st century?!) and a lighter/matches, you're doing it wrong. Throw it all away, so that if you want to smoke, you'll have to actually buy all that again. And if you fail and buy it, throw it all away, along with the pack of cigarettes, as a self-inflicted punishment for failing.
Take for granted that your mental strength will fail you. Make it impossible or at least harder for you to smoke.
Oh yeah, and if you know smokers, don't be near them when they smoke. Don't go out to chat when they go have a smoke. It may suck, but having people enjoying the poison you're trying to stay away from is torturing yourself, and making it more likely that you'll flinch. That's mortal, and how my mother has started smoking again. She grabbed a gulp of smoke when her friends offered it to her (which strangely looks like a common comportment when people are outside and a minority is not holding a cigarette) once in a while, and then became helplessly addicted once again. After having stopped for a good 10 years.
