Can I go cold turkey?

You are the person best placed to answer that question.
Giving up isn't really dependent on your will power...  It can depend on a number of factors, how many you smoke a day, how long have you smoked how determined you are to quit.

Nicotine gum can be used to curb cravings for nicotine, Personally I found it hard to quit. Going cold turkey was not an effective option off the smoked cold turkey... my body was still craving nicotine. By cutting down the gum, and the dosage size, and mixing it it normal gum I was eventually able to curb my cravings completely.
When you are quitting remember to:
  • Stay Positive
  • Think positively and Think of yourself as a non-smoker not a deprived ex-smoker
  • Avoid Triggers and Remove any temptation
  • Keep yourself busy
  • Substitute something for a cigarette (like a cup of tea or drink of water)
  • Remember You don't need to smoke to relax
  • Diet and Exercise - Eat sensibly and stick to your normal diet
  • Reward yourself with the money you are saving
  • Don't panic and Remember, you're not alone
"What if I slip and have a cigarette?"
  • It is not the end of the world if you relapse, many people do not quit smoking on the first attempt, but the key is not to be disheartened by your relapse. Rather to learn from it and try again.
  • The best way to deal with a relapse is not to fall back into old habits, to try again, removing all temptation, and using nicotine gum to curb further cravings.
  • If you do relapse it is also a good idea to look back, and see what it was that made you want to smoke again, but identifying this trigger you will be able to avoid it next time. Smoking is addictive, but you can break the habit.
"What if I get addicted to the gum?"
You can slowly cut down you dosage and blend normal chewing gum with nicotine gum, until eventually you are just chewing normal chewing gum.
