Menthol cigarettes are also more addictive than regular. For a menthol smoker, it's easier to quit by switching to non-menthol cigarettes first, and then weaning oneself off of those.
Following the incremental quitting strategy, another good method is switching from store-bought cigarettes to rolling your own. Tobacco shops sell good quality, reasonably priced additive free tobacco, along with rolling papers in bulk that are much cheaper than the pot smoker's rolling papers that you can buy at convenience stores. They also have rolling machines that only cost two or three bucks.

I'm a big fan of Zyban. I've been quit 2 months, after smoking 1+ pack of Marlboro a day for 25 years. Did the Zyban for 60 days starting 8 days before I quit.
I think menthol cigarettes are more irritating to the bronchial passages, and the smoker seeks soothing relief by smoking another (menthol) cigarette.
