Yeah I do beleave he can quit without seeing a doctor since I know a lot of people who quit smoking and never went to the doctor. This is a very good time for him to quit since most people start seeing the affects of smoking around his age and hopefully smoking hasnt already hurt him so good luck to your dad.

He can quit without seeing a doctor, I quit 4 month ago and never seen a doctor. If he needs help with a patch then I guess he want to see a doctor. Good Luck to your dad.
