I'm on day 20 today so feeling pleased with myself. Last 3 days iv been cold turkey and not been using nicotine patches. Still using my electronic ciggie but it's 0% nicotine. Must admit I do feel better already. I had a horrible cough prior to stopping. This has now stopped. My skin and hair also feels and looks better. My advise to everyone is to keep at it . It does get easier as time goes on .
