I have been a non smoker for about 1 year. I have struggled with it many times over the years. I found that this time I really wanted to quit and it was much easier. I agree with ijsouth, the cravings really decrease over time. Whenever I get the urge, I always take some really deep breaths and savor my ability to breath deeply and slowly without coughing and gagging! I also try to remember, "This too shall pass."
Many go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
