There are several things you can do to stop smoking that don’t involve nicotine replacement therapy or prescription medications:
A popular option that has good results. Hypnosis works by getting you into a deeply relaxed state where you are open to suggestions that strengthen your resolve to quit smoking and increase your negative feelings toward cigarettes. Ask your doctor to recommend a qualified smoking cessation hypnotherapist in your area.
One of the oldest known medical techniques. Acupuncture is believed to work by triggering the release of endorphins (natural pain relievers) that allow the body to relax. As a smoking cessation aid, acupuncture can be helpful in managing smoking withdrawal symptoms.
Nicotine addiction is related to the habitual behaviors (the “rituals”) involved in smoking. Behavior therapy focuses on learning new coping skills and breaking those habits. The American Lung Association offers a free online smoking cessation program that focuses on behavioral change.
Self-help books and websites can provide a number of ways to motivate yourself to quit smoking. One well known example is calculating the monetary savings. Some people have been able to find the motivation to quit just by calculating how much money they will save after they quit. One person saved enough money to pay his annual car insurance premiums.
But I still think you will need a good doctor to go through the process of quitting smoking with you!

Easing the Stress: Green oats (oatstraw) are thought to have a sedative effect, fighting anxiety and panic attacks and are also useful when trying to stop smoking by reducing the craving to smoke. Kava Kava works much like Valium, as an antidote to the depression and mood swings that often occur when you stop smoking. Passionflower is a strong calming herb generally used for treating insomnia. Passionflower can be occasionally useful for severe daytime anxiety, and could be employed in a stop smoking stragegy. Skullcap is a sedative herb that can help alleviate the anxiety that sometimes accompanies giving up cigarettes. Can't sleep without a last puff? Valerian relaxes tense muscles, and can be used as a sleep aid if insomnia is one of your quitters symptoms.
Use uplifting aroma room sprays to cleanse the air of state cigarette smoke and calm your nerves.
