    Samalbert,  cold turkey is difficult but doable.  Congratulations on your decision and welcome to the forum.  Sounds like you’ve tried to quit before so you must have a pretty good idea on how to start.  Just take it one day and one step at a time, stay positive and don’t give up.  If you haven’t already done so read Allen Carr’s “Easy Way To Stop Smoking” and give the quit coaches a call at 1-877-455-2233 for counselling or day to day help. Also remember to say NOPE (not one puff ever) to yourself whenever you get a craving. All the best, Lucille 👏👍🙋‍♀️🚭

    I quit cold turkey Sam so I can say from experience, it's totally doable. The early days will test you but stick around here for support because that can make a difference too. Take smoking off the table. When you truly believe it's no longer an option for you, you will find ways to drag yourself through the tough battles. When you think things are tough and you're about to give in, remember that quitting never killed anyone whereas smoking has killed millions!

    Samalbert, as GM stated, it is totally doable for some.

    Cold Turkey isn't for everyone, but maybe it will be the one that works for you. Did you use up annual supply that you are allotted every year? If yes, in January, you qualify for additional products. Also have you tried calling the QuitNow help line, we could assist you with your quit. Help you prepare and plan. Provide you with support and ideas that might be helpful.
    Keep up the great work. It's hard work but the pay off is amazing.
