I quit smoking 6 years ago. The biggest problem I had was trying to keep my hands busy since I no longer held cigarettes. What ended up taking place from holding a cigarette is pulling out whiskers. It was something to keep my hands busy. To this day I still do it though not as often. I have done it so much that I end up with bald spots and have to shave and let it all grow out again.

That being said I am not sure how you can get over that. I am glad you quit smoking. I once heard a lady being interviewed about caring for her husband who was/is a smoker and can’t get around do to breathing problems. She said she loves her husband and will care for him till he dies. But she also said he was a very selfish man. They worked their entire lives and saved up so they could travel together when they get older. She asked him several times to quit smoking and he refused. Now she is retired, they can’t travel and she hates the fact that because he was so selfish, she now has to stay at home and care for her husband because he can’t walk to the kitchen and back without running out of breath.
