    Great move stoprightnow. Cold turkey may not work, but don't let that worry you. The best advice I found was ou only fail when you fail to try and quit.

    If cold turkey doesn't work there are a number of other avenues open to you and you're likely to find something which suits you as long as you want to quit. Don't be to discouraged if you dont succeed first time.

    If it helps, I was a 40 a day smoker for 40 years. I spent last week in hospital with a chest infection. Last Saturday I needed an ambulance as I near suffocated.

    I've been recently diagnosed emphysema, but I know I've had it for years, just hid it really well. I'm now into day 7 smoke free and never thought it would have been possible. In forty years the best I'd done was 24 hours once.

    Good luck....keep us posted for more encouragement if it helps.

    it has only been 1 day smoke-free and if i knew it was that easy i would have stopped years ago i must be lucky i have just decided that i am not smoking and that is that, so far the only difference is i am not smoking well all the best it is only early days, good luck to everyone.
