Hi Paus.  I'm glad to hear that you want to stop smoking.  Smoking is so bad for your health and such a bad example for young people around you.  My own experience was to just quit one day and that was it.  Not easy, but can be done.  Of course the difficulty also depends on the type of cigarette and the amount you smoke as well.  

I'm sure you will get lots better information if you will go to this Forum.

Good luck to you.
