The best way to get smoke smell out of anything is open air. if you can, put your stuff outside, or on a few nice days, leave the windows open.
But the walls and ceilings will either need to be washed, or repainted.
Also, look into cleaners that specialize in smoke.
As for quitting smoking, find something to keep you busy. First be aware of triggers that make you crave cigarrettes, the routines.
For example, when i quit, i discovered i lit up anytime i talked on the phone. I had a huge urge to light up anytime i was on the phone. Be aware of
these and know that it will pass.
What helped me quit? a yo yo. i didnt know how to yo yo, so i carried it around. If I was standing somewhere and had the urge to light up, i would
bust the yo yo out of my pocket and start playing with it, and kept myself busy till the urged passed. I didnt care where I was, it could be the line
in the bank. Some people use sunflower seeds, bubblegum, etc. Get an old fashioned rubiks cube.
Also, give yourself a reminder of your journey. Every day i didnt smoke I put a big red X on that day on the calendar. Anyone that came over would ask
what it was about, when i told them, they would look forward to counting the Xs, and it became a support group for me as they gave me encouragement
My stepmother was allowed to buy new furniture if she quite. The money saved in one year was enough to replace the couch, she got a new living room
