Re: trying so hard to resist urges to smoke
just have decided to try and quit too (me and hubby)..
it was not difficult to decide which method to try, as some options were ruled out.. i already have to take ambien to fall asleep and i used to have bad dreams and nightmares ALOT until dr started me on the neurontin, and some of the side effects of Chantix are those things.also our insurance copay is $60 per month per person for a script.. so not an option!! the lozenzes and gum, are a bit pricey for a week supply for 2 people.. with lozenges the instructions say "do not drink anything 15 minutes before using", and due to already having bad dry mouth caused by some of my meds and other reasons... plus it is kinda hard to say "oh i am going to have a craving for cig in 15 minutes, so nothing to drink til afterward a lozenge".. so from plan to have a lozenge til it is dissolved, 35-45 minutes has passed with nothing to drink..
got some of the walmart equate brand patches and using those. we got a small variety of hard candies (jolly ranchers, werther's, life savers type things), and when we feel the urge, we have a candy..
good luck to you
