Smoking cessation

Hi, I went Angioplasty 1 month ago and Doctors have placed stent in left coronary artery. The reason of having stroke at early age was SMOKING. I weigh 94Kg at the time of my surgery and my height is just 5 foot 9 inches which tells i was overweight as well. The other reasons includes my diet which contains lots of junk food and oily food. I used to drink on alternate days and used to smoke 10 cigarettes per day. My question is, now a days I am having high urge of smoking and I am unable to control myself. I have become so violent which is leading me to be more stressful which is Achilles heel of lifestyle. Please tell me right directions to quit smoking. I am failed to keep up with cold turkey and am losing my all hopes. Thanks.

There is medication for Smoking cessation by the name of Varnicelene. It helps to block the craving for cigarettes and helps smoker to quit. But the most important part of quitting smoking is that the individual has to be convinced that he needs to quit. Ask your doctor to precribe the medication for you and take the full course.
