 I actually quit cold turkey with both of my pregnancy, for the obvious reason.  I went on an anti-depressent 6 months ago and stopped completely.  Best part was I had no intention on quitting.  I just lost all desire to smoke.

Chantix, but I had to stop taking it cause it was messing me up pretty bad.

Start by switching to a brand you wouldn't normally buy, and then start timing your allowed smoke. If you smoke a pack a day, divide the hours you're awake by 20, and that's how often you're smoking. Figure out what your triggers are...first thing in the morning? With your coffee? When you're driving? After a meal? Get some Altoids to keep in your car if you're a driving smoker. Change your habits. Most of us associate certain behaviors with smoking like talking on the phone with our galpals. Good luck momma.

I quit cold turkey...but then again I don't have an addictive personality.

Is that an ego?
