I hope I am doing this right. I am so grateful for this site-it has truely helped me. I feel alive and hopeful. I have not smoked for 7 days and I do not crave anymore-just having slight irritation but it is managable. cold turkey is the way. I too have tried to quit so many times using so many different methods-the patch was a good one-I was on and off the patch for 6 years! This is my second and LAST cold turkey quit. For today I will not smoke, I will not take another puff.
