First proper attempt at stopping in early 30s when I had kids didn't go too well. Most of my mates were still doing it so I just had too many opportunities to justify having one here and there. Cracked it properly the second time around in my mid 30s when Mum died. Got myself fit for the London Marathon and never looked back. Cold Turkey both times so to answer your question, no it's not that hard physically, you just need to have made the mental decision to stop.
