It seems like your main trigger is the same as mine, stress. My advice would be to either try to reduce the amount of stress in your life (not always possible, I know) or find a different way to cope.

My stepmother quit smoking when she converted to the Church. She is convinced that God helped her, that she would not have been able to without his help. She still has a pretty deep voice for a woman, and sometimes sings the tenor part!
Even though I've never smoked, I have had other bad habits to overcome, and yeah, stress is a big contributor to the problem. That, and boredom. So finding harmless ways to deal with stress can help.

I've never smoked, but my sister did for a long time. She was never able to quit for her own benefit, but when she got pregnant, she thought of the baby developing inside her, and out of love for the baby, she quit smoking.
I was in a similar situation. To this day, I don't care about the personal health benefits of quitting. My fiance has asthma, and one of her biggest triggers is cigarette smoke. That was a huge motivation for me, and the aforementioned return from deployment provided ideal circumstances.

Our teenage neighbor started smoking even after she watched our other neighbor struggle to get up the stairs every day with her emphysema. She also was in the beginning stages of heart failure and there was nothing she could do to reverse it. I just don't understand why people start smoking these days. It's expensive, it makes you reek, and you might die.
