I did not touch cigarette or alcohol during college days, but just after I landed on my first job, I tried my first cigarette, the hit was unreal, 100 times stronger than alcohol, and then became a regular smoker (not a chain smoker). I quit once and remained nicotine-free for around 7 months, but relapsed. I think that Nicotine replacement was one of the reasons behind the relapse. I don't smoke more than 2 or 3 in a day, but I am not happy with my addiction, my only addiction. I have decided to quit, this time for ever. I have decided to go COLD TURKEY, no replacement, no therapy. I know that first few weeks, particularly the first 72 hours will be painful like hell. Has anybody tried quitting in past? Would like to know their story. If anybody wants to quit with me, most welcome.
