I'm not totally ready. I've done some cutting back but I'm just not ready to put them down yet.

If you've never heard of it, I think this is considered by some to be the bible of quitting smoking:

The guy's main point is that you don't actually enjoy smoking, and you never did. It doesn't work for everyone, but it just worked for me, period. I haven't had a smoke, or even an urge, in almost 3 years. I've bought and given this book away at least 5 times, and I always keep a fresh copy on my desk to send to anyone who wants one. Time to order another one, in fact!

Smoking and drinking are two different beasts, IMO. Whether you can or should tackle both at once is probably a personal thing, but I was able to drop smoking cold-turkey while maintaining a ridiculous drinking habit, so the whole "Need a smoke when I drink" thing didn't apply to me. Good luck.
