Quitting Smoking by Sign: Continued

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Libras are often more concerned with helping others than with helping themselves, so this sign would do well to find a partner in quitting. This way, they'll have the double satisfaction of quitting themselves while also helping someone else kick the habit. Nothing would stop a Libra from taking a puff more than having promised someone that they wouldn't smoke as long as the other person didn't.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
It doesn't really matter what method a Scorpio uses to quit smoking. What matters is that they keep it to themselves. Nothing pleases this sign more than a big unveiling, the opportunity to say, "Oh, no thanks. I quit," and then reveal that they'd done it six months ago. Don't expect them to help anyone else quit, though. They're likely to keep their methods -- and any failures they may have encountered along the way -- under wraps.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
This sign would do well to combine their love of smoking with their love of adventure. Planning a week-long outdoor camping or hiking trip, and not allowing themselves to smoke at all during that time, would be a great way to kick the habit. They'll be so busy enjoying nature that it won't even occur to them to smoke. And if they want to stick with it? They'll have to start planning the next adventure when they get the itch.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Goats would benefit the most from the tried-and-true methods of quitting, like nicotine patches and gum. The impetus for quitting will probably be career-based -- they may feel like they're missing out on opportunities in the workplace when they have to take smoke breaks regularly. Patches and gum will allow them to gradually kick the habit without disrupting their daily routine.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Aquarians are all about doing things in groups. If they don't have a group of smokers in their vast circle of friends who are ready to kick the habit, a support group would be the way to go. And they'll definitely need a friend or two to be on call should they get that craving in the middle of the night and need to be talked down. If there isn't an already existing group in the area, sites like Craig's List and Meetup will help them recruit members.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
This sign may have the hardest time trying to quit smoking, because Pisces often relies heavily on (usually unhealthy) vices to help them cope with the stress of daily life. In fact, they're likely to try to get everyone around them to quit while they continue smoking, because they care about others much more than they care about themselves. Hypnosis and acupuncture are the best ways for this sign to connect with and nurture their spiritual self, which will ultimately give them the strength to kick the habit.
