Titration and Stopping smoking

medicine: 20 mg. Aripiprazole in the mornings.
diet: three to four meals a day
exercise: walking
weight: 146 lbs.
mood: o.k.
sleep: 8 hours

Titration must be done very gradually. Titration is best explained in Beyond Meds' Water titration for slow and controlled psychiatric drug withdrawal.

I have to stop smoking in two to three weeks. I am preparing while continuing to smoke. I will not have time to "titrate down", smoking one less every one to two days. I could "titrate down", for one to two weeks, but I would not be stopped, yet.

I would only decrease by 3 - 14 cigarettes, not completely. So, I will stop suddenly, which is not recommended.

I must stop smoking within three weeks. I am smoking, now.
