It's all true. I'm very happy having quit. Anyone can do it.
ERIC: Can anyone answer some questions about this means of quitting smoking?
YOU: Just go cold turkey like I did! Aren't I awesome?!
... You didn't answer Eric's questions, you just bragged about your own success.
The hell? He didn't say anything about how awesome he was or do anything remotely like bragging. He said what he did, asked if the OP had considered it as an option, and gave it his recommendation. Given that the OP was the one who explicitly brought up the topic of quitting, offering/suggesting an option that one has personally found success with is completely reasonable. Just because it didn't work for you doesn't mean that the person suggesting it is looking down on you; just because you didn't find success in a given endeavor doesn't mean that anyone who mentions their own success is trying to rub your face in it.
If someone expresses an interest in quitting smoking, then other people saying "I did X, it worked, I highly recommend it" is completely appropriate.
