Many things: Your personal physician can write an rx, your family and friends can support you, you can join a cessation club. What i'd like you to do right now is pledge that you are not going to give any more money to the bastards who got you addicted in the first place. Good luck.

Cold turkey.: As far as quitting without any nicotine replacement, the cold turkey method is great. But plan it ahead of time. Pick a quit date in advance, maybe a meaningful date like a birthday or holiday, and gather people who are aware of your attempt that you can call upon for moral support if you start to falter. Good luck!!

Wean then quit: Make a conscious effort to wean down, substitute a healthy behavior for the unhealthy smoking behavior several times a day. Try health gaming, this can help you focus on tracking your positive health behaviors, which will help you do less of the unhealthy ones. ( for example drink a glass of water rather than smoke a cigarrete) Photo upload feature uses emotion to improve behavior!
