    HI Feefee; and welcome..
    Well, you could not ask for more incentive than that. Then add the expense, and the time wasted, just so we can shove poison into our body. The more you let yourself see the truth about smoking, the easier it is to just not want one..
    Generally, with going cold turkey, you will about 3 miserable weeks. But, with the right mindset, you can separate the withdrawal symptoms, from wanting, or craving a smoke. Accept the discomfort, as you would a bad cold, or flu, and know that it will pass. Once that smoke becomes something you do NOT WANT, and not something you can't have, it gets much easier :)
