Question:

if wanted to quite smokeing how do i do it. please tell me.

Answer:

It sounds like you are ready to quit; good for you! I`d suggest a visit to your doctor to discuss whether medications like nicotine replacement or bupropion might help. Then, set a quit date, ask family and friends for support, think about joining a smoking cessation group offered by a local American Cancer Society or Heart or Lung Association, get rid of all smoking-related objects like ashtrays and lighters, make a plan for dealing with craving (see website), and go for it!
