Has anyone tried and succeeded stopping smoking by cold turkey? I roll my own and average 20 a day, I've had four attempts at giving up using patches and failed everytime, the longest I went was a month and my last attempt was about 3 weeks ago. I've been smoking 30 years. I reckon the problem is the nicotine still being in my system, I'm very conscious that my body is still being fed the nicotine by patches and for that reason I don't feel that I'm making a positive and conscious decision of my own making. After a week or so it's almost like the decision not to smoke is being made for me by the patches, weird I know, and hard to describe, but that's how it is. So, I've made the decision to go 'cold turkey', anyone else done it? How did you get on? Is it as hard as the nicotine replacement manufacturers would have us believe or is it just a 72 hour shakedown as the nicotine level drops?
