34. Ok..this worked for me...
however, no one else that I have spoken to about quiting smoking seem interested in this "tip".

Instead of doing the gum or other cessation helpers I decided that, instead of trying to escape my discomfort, I was going to make a friend of the withdrawal symptoms by allowing myself to really experience the anxiety and panic that comes with nicotine withdrawal. When I stopped trying to escape the discomfort of withdrawal, and instead allowed myself to really experience the physical and psychological effects brought on by quitting didn't seem very overwhelming anymore, and I was calmed by a sense that I could succeed at going cold turkey.
