When I first quit what I would do when I had a craving was tell myself ‘I just had a cigarette! Why am I freaking out? I just smoked, calm down’, and that helped to psychologically phase myself into not having a craving and it would pass until the next craving and I would tell myself that again, until the thoughts came less and less into my mind/head.
