quit cold turkey is the best. starting to smoke again after quitting simply means the nicotine drug addiction is tricking ur mind. relax and quit for health reasons.
first the nicotine addiction,the smoking habit and finally avoid trigger factors. in 1 month the addiction is gone and in a season u ll feel very good and u might not remember that u smoked.

breathe out through ur mouth as many times as possible. relaxation is the key whenever panicky thoughts arrive.
u can go for an ECG test.
