      I quit smoking five years ago and even now I still crave it. Best thing to do (this worked for me)  is to keep a journal of the timing/frequency of the cravings and substitute with something else. Rather than fighting the urge write it down and ask yourself (why am I craving this? is it a habit? is it boredom? is it anxiety? am I depressed, angry, emotional, happy, etc.?).
      Learning to identify the emotional reasons behind the cravings will help create awareness. Once you are aware of the triggers you can find healthy substitutions (e.g. deep breathing, altoids, exercize, remind yourself why you quit and be flexible).
      Addictions (let it be food, drugs, cigarettes) are hard to break but awareness and persistance can help...
      Good Luck!!!
