I quit smoking daily (at least half a pack per day) for 3 years straight,and it was "cold turkey" as they say.

Once I quit,I felt a bit uncomfortable like a very mild headache(almost background annoyance) for about two weeks and that was all there was to it. Now,I've never been addicted to caffeine even though I drink espresso shots daily for weeks and for a few more weeks might not drink any caffeine,so I have no frame of reference for comparison.

Stress does still cause me to be tempted but it's no worse than being tempted to eat fast food.
