yes but the intensity differs. Like you said i know alot of people able to quit cold turkey but as well as people who weren't due to terrible trembling, etc etc.
i know a friend of mine who taken some expensive medicine and that is suppose to suppress nicotine urges. Using that he quitted, despite not smoking longer than me he had relatively bad drawbacks when attempting to quit.
i tried cold turkey as well, but it ddin't work for me. But give it a try, you never know. But just don't keep trying cold turkey again and again.
