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!! Big fan of cold turkey (not the food). ...Read more

Something "free?": Very little in life is free. Certainly, whatever you are smoking (cigarettes, pipes, cigars) aren't free. Your motivation to stop smoking needs to include the motivation to pay a little now to save a lot of money in the future.

You might also try using the gum instead (easier to control the dose & frequesncy) or talk to your md or dentist for a prescription med to try. Either way, congratulations on making a choice for better health! ...Read more
