Hi: I quit smoking about seven or eight months ago now, and when I did smoke, it was only four or five smokes in the pack and then I'd throw it out. I'm on the spray from Nicorette, and I think it's affecting my blood pressure, which is quite high. I want to quit the NRT. I wonder about my chances for relapse, now that I can't smoke in my apartment (it's a new thing), but I'm still clinging onto the spray NRT. What is the best method to completely quit the NRT, which I love now more than smoking, without going into cranky withdrawal? I feel that I've gotten over the hump of being able to go into the convenience store wanting to buy smokes, but I want to stay quit and not relapse. I've been told that some poeple need to be on NRT for years just to make sure they stay quit, but, again, I worry about my blood pressure and wonder if cold turkey is the best method or not. If you have help or suggestions, let me know. This is unusual in that I've quit smoking, but I want to make sure I don't go back there. Zachary.
