Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking
This book costs about £7 and is probably one of the better books on giving up smoking. Most of the book explodes various myths and delusions about smoking (such as smoking relaxes you and gets rid of stress), then encourages you to rejoice in not having to smoke again. It deals with the psychological aspects of addiction, which given that nicotine is eliminated from the body within 48 hours of stopping, is the key to being able to quit in the first place and to stay smoke-free.
