Good for you for wanting to quit!! I smoked since I was 14, I'm 57 now. This Feburary I decided to quit. I did it cold turkey. The first night is the hardest. You have to do something to take your mind off the cigarette. Go clean the house, clean your closet, take your dogs for a walk, talk to someone. Anything to keep you busy and tired enough to sleep that night. Then if you can get through the next three days as you detox, you will have it made. You will be irritable and snappy, I just warned everyone and apologized ahead of time to my family. Stay away from anyone else who smokes and that will help, too. When you get the urge, try chewing gum or sucking on a hard candy. That helps cut the craving. Best of luck, you will love saving the money you spend on cigs and your will be able to smell and taste better. It's been 6 months and I have absolutely no cravings.
