To stop smoking using your willpower - also called "cold turkey" - means to give up smoking by just deciding not to smoke another cigarette.
In other words stopping smoking without any help and without using what are called nicotine replacement products, for example, e-cigarettes, nicotine patches or gum, or therapy like acupuncture or hypnosis.
Many smokers would prefer to stop cold turkey because it sounds like the best way - fast, cheap - and even pretty cool.
But, sadly it is nowhere near as easy as it sounds.
There are some people do manage to quit cold turkey by themselves. If you ask them how they did it, they will usually smile and reply that it was very easy and that they just decided to quit!
Well that is fine for those few lucky people - if it really was that easy for them - but for most smokers it is not that easy.
It was easy to start smoking but it's not easy to stop.
Many smokers who try to quit cold turkey without any help or preparation might succeed in quitting cold turkey and stop smoking for a few hours or days even or weeks, but then the often old smoking urges, cravings and habits might overpower them and they find themselves smoking again.
Sometimes they even seem to smoke more after trying to quit cold turkey – as if they are trying to make up for the cigarettes they missed.
But generally speaking cold turkey is the best way and everyone can quit cold turkey if they know how.
It is not easy to quit cold turkey if you don't know how.
