  • i stared it about a month ago and it is helping me so much i have not had a cigarette in a month and i feel so much better now if the occasional urge to smoke would completely go away and the bi***eness would completely stop lol

  • I quit cold turkey, honestly its the best way to do's rough for a few days but then your good to go. I used lot's of lollipops, especially in the car =). Good luck, it is the best thing I ever did in my life after smoking for 19 years, I have to wonder why I ever picked it up in the first place.

  • no my DH quit cold turkey it worked for him....My Mother tried everything finally went with accupuncture after 40+ years of smoking she was done in less than a month with no cravings or mood swings
    what works for one person may not work for another just keep trying and don't give up
