Quiting Smoking While Pregnant

My sister is 8 weeks pregnant and is having the most difficult time quiting smoking. Her OB simply told her they don't prescriptions to pregnant Mom's (basically, you're on your own and yes, she did switch OB's after that appointment). I don't smoke, so I don't understand the addiction part. But I do know she really wants to quit. She was able to stop cold turkey with her first, but that's not working this time. Does any one have any ideas that might help her?

Needless to say he becomes very embarassed. If I catch it before we leave the store I scold him, make him put it back & remind him yet...
