>Considering digging out the ecig thing I've got to try help, but I'd rather not use it because it doesnt quite satisfy the urge by keeps the nicotine addiction fresh
I quit without the help of e-cigs.
While it can't be denied that e-cigs are not as unhealthy as conventional cigarettes (although decidedly not having any health-promoting qualities either), if your goal is really to quit your addiction to smoking and nicotine, then you should just keep on the cold turkey path that you have pretty much already chosen.
After about a week, maybe ten days of withdrawal, the physical symptoms like nervousness, restlessness and irritability should taper off, and from then on it's really just a mental thing. Physical addiction can be quite tricky to leave behind, but once you have made it past that threshold, there are a million different ways that you can fool your mind into believing that you simply don't need those stinkers anymore.
And do keep reading daily about the harmful health effects of smoking. Perhaps the more drastic, the better. And keep saying to yourself that you now have a fighting chance to dodge that bullet for good, if you just stay on the path of virtue. While you are still in quite good health.
I'm not going to lie, it'll be tough. But every week, every month and every year that passes without you having started smoking again will give you a sense of accomplishment, and you will grow increasingly proud of this testament to your own will power. And with all good reason.
