I understand the anxiety you are feeling. It used to be that when I even thought about quitting smoking, my hands would break out into a sweat. And of course, I also wanted a smoke, because I smoked for any and every reason at all. You probably do, too.
After smoking for 43 years, I decided enough was enough, and it was my time to quit. I had no idea how to go about quitting, so I came on this site, and read everything I could. I filled out the questionnaires, and decided to go cold turkey. I joined this community forum, and I told my friends and family that I was quitting, to help to keep me accountable. That was over two years ago, and I have been a non-smoker ever since.
I know that the thought of quitting is daunting, miffty, but you can do it. You really can. Those of us who have quit are just like you. We are not super heroes, and we don't have any magical powers. But we all had a sincere desire to quit. We did our best to prepare ourselves, and then we took the plunge.
You have nothing to lose by trying, but you have so much to gain. Give it a shot, miffti. You may just surprise yourself.
