Many people prefer to quit smoking "cold turkey" rather than wean themselves gradually or through the use of nicotine replacement therapy or other smoking cessation aids.
If you quit cold turkey, you are quitting abruptly, and this can be successful, but it can also be difficult when the withdrawal symptoms hit. Make sure you understand that you will probably have more withdrawal symptoms with this method than with other methods of quitting.
My name is Tina. I am going to try to quit cold turkey. The medicine and the patches etc: are to expensive for me. How is someone suspose to quit with the medicines to high to buy. Maybe this will be the time to quit.
i really want to quit smoking
i disagree. it is even shown statistcially that nicotine replacement therapy has higher success rates. i am all for the patch or gum.
