How Did You Quit Smoking?

Ok. I need to quit. I want to quit. But I don't know how to quit. Most of the reason for that is fear! Fear that I will either gain an emormous amount of weight, (because, let's face it, becoming overweight isn't exactly healthy either), or I will become overly mean to people! Sounds silly, but it's a real fear. I'm a nice person, but I do know that when I'm short on nicotine, I become very aggitated and irritable. Normal, I know, but still not fun for those around me. It's not fair to my kids or husband, or friends to have to put up with that. I've tried quitting before, but like I said, it's not fair to everyone else to put up with my bad mood and I struggle controlling it. I keep telling myself, that I'll be able to quit smoking when I can take a 2 week vacation by myself in a secluded area sometimes...but I think we all know that being a stay at home mom to 5, that's never gonna happen!

They say that the best way to quit is cold turkey.
