Hi ShippWrecked E L. Welcome to the forums.
It takes a while for a site to climb up the rankings in the search engines, so you have to be a tad patient. Anyhow, you need to do a lot more to market yourself online than just wait for search engine traffic. Use social media to get the message out there, for example, and for a quick fix, try some Google advertising etc.

You should look into buying advertising space on a website relating to your product. Some sort of anti-smoking or smoking cessation websites. If you can then perhaps your sales will increase. You need to have the right product, for the right people, at their time of need. Just being out there on the web and social media isn't enough. You need to be where the people who want to quit and are willing to pay to quit are going to be. Cancer awareness, smoking cessation, heck even an online tobacco shop if you can. Many smokers want to stop and maybe they will jump on the wagon if they see your ad when they go to buy that bag of tobacco.
Just some thoughts, good luck.
