    What i did was just stop buying them. Sounds like I'm taking the piss, but i was really tight with my spending. I'd ensure that i only ever had enough to get lunch when i went out to uni. When i wasn't going somewhere i needed lunch, i just didn't take my wallet. I did go back on it a couple times but you have to just develop that self control, you really need to want to quit.

    I went cold turkey and barely slept for 6 weeks, but that was in 2010 when e-cigs weren't really around(I wish they were as I tried one once via someone promoting them who flogged me a disposable one but they weren't readily available).

    More than anything a lot of willpower is required. I'd recommend vaping rather than patches so you still get that feeling of smoking something, I found the patches gave me a permanent head rush.

    Good luck.
