I'd like to quit.
anyone know if the new "herbal" smoke away is REALLY as good as the ads claim???
I have smoked since I was 18. I'm 30 now. I smoke about 15 cigarettes a day.
I HATE that I smoke. but OH. I have tried so many times to quit.
I think If I could be locked in a room alone for 4 days I could kick the habbit. but life gets in the way... ( I know, just another excuse!)
But at least I don't drink, have NEVER used drugs ( except RX and I dont' even like those.)
I recently had an alcoholic inform me of how "gross" it was to smoke.
My reply was, my lungs may be in trouble, but i still have all my brain cells.
add me to the list even though it's bad for me i really enjoy a smoke with coffe after dinner and can i say this????(sex) i'm on wellbutrin now for my depression and actually not enjoying or careing if i smoke these days or not.. probly in a week or so i'll probly be saying goodbye to the habit..the funny thing about it is i didn't know that wellbutrin was used to help people quit smokeing lol lol but i'm glad i'm on it ... take care elizabeth

I smoked for over 30yewrs. Stopped April,2002. Don't feel any better. Would still love to smoke but won't.
I used nicotine gum and wellbuton. Then had hemorage in stomach, possibly from the gum. Now in the habit of chewing regular gum. I do miss my ciggys.
Quit with Zyban once but when I quit taking the Zyban I started to smoke again. Hubby smokes so that may be why I started back up. We have a pact to have a smoke free home by Christmas.............we'll see.........it is easier said than done! WLE
That would be me~ I've been smoking for 22 yrs. I sure wish I could quit....but its the hardest damn thing.I tried once a few yrs ago.......ended up in the ER!!
I could'nt figure out what was wrong with me,I had a fast heart-rate,felt lightheaded,very shakey inside.....sorta like a panic attack??but when I was questioned on meds and such by the dr. on call......I had mentioned that I quit smoking cold turkey 5 days ago.....Bingo!!The dr. said it was all withdrawel symptoms!!!! well,the way I was feeling,and being told it was from not smoking.....as soon as I got outside I bought a pack, and that was that!!(pretty scary those withdrawl symptoms!!) Hoping a better way of quitting is invented soon~
and I have no desire to quit. Intellectually, I know I should, of course, but I just don't want to. After 30 years I doubt I could anyway, not without tearing people limb from limb. Didn't start until I was 30 - how stupid is that! First husband wouldn't allow it, even though I wanted to, so when I left him I lit right up! I smoke a pack a day, on average - depends on what I'm doing and sitting at this computer hikes the numbers way up!
The only guilt I have about it is the money I really do need for other things.
