Re: Happy Great American Smokeout Day!

I've heard that Chantix can have some scary side effects including depression and suicide.

Re: Happy Great American Smokeout Day!

There are some crazy impacts Chantix can have on your brain. I would recommend NOT using it. It basically alters the flow and reception of neurotransmitters.

I know it's easier said than done, but in the end good old willpower is always your best cure.

It's all in your expectation. If you expect peaches and cream for life you're going to have tough time eating the occasional sour grapes.

Most meds that work on chemical imbalances and what not have those type of side effects. It's the same type of side effects that you might incur if you were taking anti-anxiety or anti-depressants. Like FD said, I think it depends on the person and perhaps the amount you're taking, I have a friend that used Chantix and she did fine on it... And whoever said Chantix makes smoking nasty to you, she eventually stopped taking it because it not only turned her off of cigs, but it turned her off of weed as well. She couldn't make it without her weed.

Re: Happy Great American Smokeout Day!

well, i was looking for that "hey look at me I quit smoking cigarettes for a day" thread because, hey look at me i quit smoking cigarettes for the past .. 6 hours? WTF it feels like ive gone a good day, atleast a half day. hadnt had one since 9 am.
shit ive only gone 6 hrs and 25 mins? **** never mind, ill wait another 5 hrs and 35 mins before i demand my obligatory electronic pat on the back and a few words of encouragement from a collection of internet people ill never know.

you ever notice the people who start those "im quitting smoking" threads never tell you when they failed.

anyways, im going to buy some nicirette gum. i feel good, i feel like i have to do it. just saw the sonogram of the baby, we are 14 weeks and 6 days along so i have to do it. but the nicorette might help,

im alil on edge. i could probably use a lil help . .

You might try taking a ginseng capsule every day. It helps to rebalance your body's chemicals. It won't end cravings but it will lessen them. And it's natural so there are no bad side effects.

Cloves... GAG. I tend to like black and milds though. I'm cool with those.
I refuse to date smokers...

I've had 2 cloves in a single night but never a traditional cigarette

I am in the same boat. Need to quit, got all the way down to like 3 a day after my daughter was born then I just slowly started to smoke again. Dont smoke in the house or the car BTW.

It just sucks, I have tried Chantix, and I never stopped smoking and the dreams and side effects were terrible.

Heard of a new drug they are introducing here that is a one time shot. It completely eliminates the urge to smoke. It is $450.00, and if you smoke again within a year they only charge you another 100. I am thinking I may try that as I have had a hell of a time trying to do it on my own.

One of the side effects is suicidal thoughts. I mean really? They're gonna market something that may get you to stop smoking, but totally make you wanna hang yourself.

I'd really only take something like that as an absolutely last resort.

I've never had a traditional cigarette either but I've smoked cloves and black and milds when I was drinking. For some reason they just taste different with alcohol. I'm not gonna lie they taste really good, but I haven't had any in a while since I've laid off the drinking.

TRY Again!
It took me three attempts but the third got it done. I used the patch for a month or so and after that I could....manage it on my own. DON'T get me wrong, even with the patch it is hard....but doable. After a few weeks, it started to let up.
REMARKABLY, within 24 hours you will stop any smokers cough you may have, and you feel better...FAST.
Good luck to you!
