... need to stop
Make an appointment with your MD if you feel it's time for you to stop. Your doctor will give his or her professional opinion as to whether it's safe to do so or not. Don't forget, you will likely need to follow a titrate schedule down (you can't just quit cold turkey, or you'll face withdrawal symptoms that are very difficult to endure).
It's really important that you do this because you have been so successful with your original plan to quit smoking, and to stop because you "think" you don't need it anymore.
You are a CHAMPION!!! Congratulations on your success, and keep up the excellent work!!! I quit twelve years ago, and I still have triggers. The smell of cigarettes is now disgusting to me, but when I am going through an extremely high-stress situation, I want to reach for one. The worst thing you can do is go out drinking and sit at a bar. Let me tell you - it's almost like there is no worse trigger than sitting at a bar and getting a little bit tipsy and being around all these other people lighting up like it's nothing.
YOU CAN DO THIS. Just think about where you put yourself and plan around it.
