In brief: Slow and steady

Cold turkey quit is very difficult and usually fails.
I tell my patients to put a bowl on the table and put in it the number of cigarettes they usually smoke. The next day, put just one less in the bowl. That way, you gradually decrease your smoking and it's not as hard. Also - put an ultrasound picture near your cigarettes - that way it reminds you every time you light up why you need to quit.

In brief: 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!! Do it soon.
