I haven't found all l-theanine's to be helpful. Take 2 [suntheanine](http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Factors-Stress-Relax-Suntheanine-Chewable/dp/B000OEPAH0 with a redbull or coffee though and you. will. feel. calm. Also focused.
Not like REALLY focused, just normal, ok, "I can do this whatevs" focused. It's subtle but absolutely effective. But I use it just about every day.
Yes, I did this and it worked for me. I'd tried to quit many times before, but this time it stuck and I just hit one cigarette-free year last month. I'm running three times a week (check out /r/C25K), I've lost 20 pounds, and I'm just generally a much happier person and feel a lot better about myself. Right now, I'm making my periodic quick stop by here, so I'm going to paste something I wrote in response to a 25 year old who was thinking of quitting. It will give you an idea of my method. Hope it helps.
>Man, I wish /r/stopsmoking had been around when I was your age. I was in this exact same situation when I turned 25; I had started at 18 and had always told myself I would quit at 25. Yeah. It lasted less than the first day of my 26th year.
Now I'm more than a decade older and I think I may finally have done it. (Still a slippery slope though...)
But I cringe when I think about how much extra damage I've done to my lungs, my heart, my blood, my reproductive organs, my skin in those years. What would my body be like if I had stuck to that goal? How much healthier would I be? What life goals might I attained had I not been constantly scheming for the next smoke break? How much money would I have saved or put toward more worthy goals? Where would I be in life? The list goes on and on.
My point? Don't be me. Read the hell out of this subreddit, take what you need from it.
I've tried to quit many, many, many times before. Right now I'm 90 days in and feeling more confident than any other attempt.
This time, I picked a long weekend in advance, a weekend when I knew I could not leave my house. I told everyone I was sick and stayed in bed/on the couch for three days during the nicotine withdrawal. I ate whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted.
Once the shit was out of my system, I still gave myself free rein to eat whatever/whenever for a week, but I started exercising. Walking up steep hills is good, as are yoga and breathing exercises. Get outside into nature if you can, and breathe in some of that sweet, sweet air untainted by cigarette smoke.
Leaving the house the first few times was scary - the car is one of my biggest triggers - but I took snacks with me (only needed them the first two or three times) and was just determined to go where I needed and nowhere else. I even was unexpectedly low on gas once and didn't feel too tempted to go in and buy cigs. I posted on here once before I left, so I had that waiting for me when I got home, knowing I needed to let people know if I had caved or held strong. It felt great to write, "I did it!" when I walked in the door.
Other thoughts: drink LOTS of water, tea, whatever. Detox tea, stress relief tea, breathing support teas are all especially helpful (I like Yogi teas the best for all three of these.). Get some Suntheanine chews to help get you through the crabby moments. (I got mine at a local health food store, but most Whole Foods type stores carry it too. Here's the brand I have and a way to order online too: http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Factors-Stress-Relax-Suntheanine-Chewable/dp/B000OEPAH0/ref=sr_1_2?s=hpc&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1386147081&amp;sr=1-2&amp;keywords=suntheanine) Go on /r/stopsmoking a lot - post as you need and read other's posts for inspiration. Remember all the shit of smoking (sore throat, coughing, stinking, wasting money, wasting time, feeling like crap, dying of cancer, etc.), and just commit to being a nonsmoker.
You CAN do this.
Try ashwaganda. I have extreme anxiety and it helps. Kava never helped me enough. Ashwaganda takes 3 hours to kick in however. A quicker solution is suntheanine chewables which has l-theanine in it. The same ingredient in other products has not helped, assuming cause it's chewable. Anxiety really kicks my ass.. klonapin and other benzos is what I prefer but having trouble getting a script for it :(
Ashwaganda I used (only other brand I tried was a liquid extract by Herb Pharm, which didn't work as good or not at all):
