Bless you for supporting your FIL in his efforts to get healthy.

There is so much information out there, maybe your FIL could visit whyquit.com and the Cancer Society's web pages in your area. Each person must find their own path and methods. Some like Nicotine Replacement Therapy, but he must discuss the ramifications of taking this with his other conditions and medications with his physician. Doctors are usually pretty helpful with looking for the right treatment to curb cravings and avoiding negative interactions.

Please continue to support him and thanks for caring.
