I want to thank everyone for their great advice and support. I believe I got through the worst of it.

I did it through at first avoiding triggers like caffeine and alcohol, also people associated with drinking and the like.

I also used a Gym Boss set to 3 minutes. That's how long each nicotine craving lasts. But when you first start it feels like hours.

So keeping the timer in my pocket for a month helped. I would just press it whenever I felt the urge. The craving kept decreasing as I went.
Congratulations! Glad you found a method that is working. Hope you keep it up, and if you slip up, don't beat yourself up too bad - you're still in a much better place and making tons of progress. This isn't an all-or-nothing game.
