Quitting Smoking Cold Turkey



I quit almost seven years ago
and have become an advocate of Cold Turkey

but, believe me,

I support and encourage everybody in their precious quits.
Any Quit Is A Good Quit.


Seven years ago (and still seek today) I sought information

(in a galaxy of  Misinformation)
and was dismayed after googling around
finding numerous instances of 'responsible experts'
recommending to  NOT quit cold turkey.

Health professionals are quick to prescribe NRT's which actually have higher failure rates than a Cold Turkey quit.


What kind of idiotic advise is that ?
Is this more Big Tobacco poisoning minds ?
Big Drug companies pushing product ?
Ignorance ?

Then I found a great rap about this from our Friend, Joel Spitzer


Quitting Cold Turkey was simple for me.  I considered it a personal challenge.

No spending any more dosh on tobacco, vape or NRT.

No schedule of tapering off.


No teasing the addict that is me.

It was clean.
It was DONE.
It didn't hurt.


There were gruesome days, for true

but,  pffttt...

there will always be gruesome days about something or other.

Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries, right ?


I continue on this new fascinating adventure.

Not One Puff Ever.




Here is another video and resource page that debunks the notion,

Isn't Quitting Smoking Cold Turkey Too Dangerous?
