I've known a lot of people who have had success with Chantix (and a couple who didn't). An online forum, like quitnet.com is helpful for some people as well. It will keep track of how much $$ you've saved by not smoking, how many days, hours, etc., you've been a non-smoker. But the biggest motivator is probably how badly your dad wants to quit smoking. Lots of support and encouragement, and understanding when he's grumpy or whatever.

I've heard that licorice is quite helpful. Licorice root tea and/or chewing on a piece of the root...this can help with the oral habit as well.

Supposedly lobelia is helpful. Check it out. I found it mildly helpful when I tried to quit some years ago but not enough to actually make me quit. I just wasn't ready.
Honestly, that's what it boils down to: being ready. I've been quit almost 4 months now. (Hoping for another 4)

You have to be careful with real licorice because it can cause high blood pressure.

I don't really have any supplement ideas to give you, but I will say as someone who is celebrating a 9 month anniversary smoke-free TODAY!! (Quit last new year's eve), this is what helped me.

I read a book called "The Easy Way to Stop Smoking" by Allen Carr. (There are many positive reviews on Amazon). I know it sounds cheesy, but it worked for me. Yes, I really wanted to quit badly. I had gotten to a place of feeling desperate to quit. Perhaps the mindset I was in helped the book to work even more. I dunno.

But so far I've been free 9 months. And it's not a struggle in the way it was the countless number of times I tried to quit in the past.

Hope that is helpful to you.
