Welcome to HCM,
I appreciate your will to quit,as you are young and smoking for >4 years. >35 cigarettes/day is high please consult Proper physician/Psychiatrist to help you quitting smoking.
If you have urge to smoke or withdrawal symptoms,I hope with strong determination you can easily quit this habit.
Even if there is failure to stop completely please do not leave treatment.
Certain methods help to increase success of quitting smoking.
(NRT) Nicotine replacement therapy.
Some drugs like Champix (Varenicline tartrate ) may be be used only under supervision of treating doctors.Although cost varies but approximately > Ten thousand and you save because you do not smoke.
Please take care
Good Luck
