    I quit cold turkey. It will be one year on Halloween.. I just finished the smokes I had and never bought more. I allowed myself a few grumpy days, and then I was fine.. I don't miss them, am so happy I quit!

    I have been smoke free for about 7 years - quit cold turkey after smoking for about 15 years. I just stopped smoking. I was freaking hard for the first few months but it gets easier - now the only thing i think when i smell smoke is 'thats disgusting' haha keep busy, start exercising, have toothpicks handy to chew on - and i found drinking oj and brushing my teeth took the cravings away a bit??? goodluck

    I quit cold turkey 5 years ago.
    I agree with pp suggestions.
    We stopped going out for a couple of weeks, and also gave ourselves 2 weeks of eating junk as a substitute!

    Have you thought of hypnosis? I have a friend who had great success with it. Maybe do a bit of research of hypnotherapists around your area.

    I almost went and saw a hypnotherapist a week after I had quit as I felt like I was struggling. He said the main thing he stresses in his sessions is with the cravings. If you are having a craving, acknowledge it. Don't push it aside and try to forget it. Acknowledge you are having a craving, but also acknowledge you are making a conscious decision to NOT have a cigarette.

    Have a glass of water. Wait five or ten minutes. The craving will decrease.

    I also would google the charts on stopping smoking and the milestones, like how long for the nicotine to be out of your system, and co levels in breath etc.

    Good luck.
    You have kicked one demon. No reason you can't do this.
