Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone can give me advice...I'm a 20 yr nightly smoker who just took a 3 month leave from work to quit. I'm dreading it because I quit for a year 10 years ago and still missed it.

As I tend to isolate my inclination is to white knuckle it and do it alone, but I know I need professional help. My therapist wants me to do intensive outpatient, but I am worried about the cost. Also, aren't outpatient programs predicated on a live-in detox? Part of me would rather white knuckle it and go to free meetings than spend 10k or whatever it costs

I would love to know if anyone here has had good luck with this route. If you had a good experience in the nyc area, I would be interested to know which one that is.

Thanks in advance and best of luck to all of you wherever you are in recovery,
