I Need Help

I'm 27 and have been smoking since 18.  Ive always told myself that I would quit when I turned 25, but that came and left 2 yrs ago.  I just recently graduated in May in Corrections and I'm going to the corrections academy soon.  I don't want to be the fat one out of breath because I smoke.  I recently went on a diet because of some health issues that I'm too young to have.  Ive been doing good on this diet, now if only I can do good at quit smoking.  I jumped in and went cold turkey, but that lasted 24 hours.  What can I do to help fight the urges, that is cheap and easy and that wont make me gain weight?

I do not know if this works all that well, my ma in law used to hold on to a cigarette. if she was watching tv, or reading...that way she felt like she was not going without. She "had" a smoke, she would never light... Eventually she would either lose them or break them, but it worked for her...
