I want to stop. But I don’t want to!

I hate smoking! Always nagged at my parents to stop, when I was a child. One of my parents died of cancer-probably related to smoking. Yet here I am... I’ve only been a smoker for about a year.
I want to stop. But, god, I enjoy a fag! But at the same time, I don’t know if I do actually enjoy it?!
Quite the dilemma

I could have written this myself! I really want to quit but enjoy it. I know I should stop but dont know how

Tricky one isn’t it. I always thought it would be so easy to just stop... guess not!

I gave up for 3 months a year ago and a stressful situation lead to me having a fag... or 10. I regret starting smoking a lot and can say the first two weeks without a fag was absolutely horrible but after a month or so I started to feel a lot better and clearer headed. My mental health was a lot better to. Give it a try but I wouldn’t recommend cold turkey. Ask your doctor about patches or buy some nicotine gum.
