Here is how I quit after 40 years: I know my self and know that if I planned a time to quit it would not work and I would worry and fret until the time I had selected arrived, so I decided to surprise myself. I bought the patches and put them up on a shelf. One morning I woke up and decided "this is the day", got out the patches and applied one. after a few weeks of using the highest strength patch, I continued to buy the highest strength patch, but wore them for 2 days, then for 3 days......etc. I then obtained some of those nicotine inhalers, either have to get a prescription or molest a drug rep. I kept the inhaler in my pocket and when i had the urge for a cigarette i used the inhaler, usually a few times daily, but less and less as the days went by. finally I was free of the symptoms, and was able to go without any aides. It seemed easy Of course I had the heart attack 2 years later, so please don't wait as long to quit as I did.
