The main options you have for things to help you quit are:
3. Vape/Patches/Gum (Nicotine Replacement)
5. Black Pepper
I finally quit with a combination of 1 and 2. The problem with 3 is that the withdrawal from nicotine is what is causing your quitting angst. So by slowly tapering down you are just painfully prolonging the withdrawal period. I tried 4 but it messed my sleep up really bad so I couldn’t continue it. I carried an inhaler thing that let me smell the scent of black pepper and it helped somewhat but didn’t really make a big dent.
