I have quit smoking many times always with using the patch, but that has never seemed to work in the long run. My thinking now is...replacing one nicotine product with another is not the answer.
I contacted my states smoking cessation program and they offer chantix, zyban, patches, gum, lozenges or just phone support if going cold turkey. Well as the title says I chose the Zyban route for this attempt.
I will say I am a bit leery on taking an anti-depressant for smoking cessation, and have not taken it as of yet. Side effects worry me and hopefully when I do "bite the bullet" and start the med they (side effects) won't be so bad that my daily life is affected...more so than how smoking effects me...
Anyhow...my quit date is set for the 15th of this month...if I have been on the med for 7-10 days...if not then the 20th.
Does anyone have advice or success stories using Zyban?
I need all the encouragement I can get at this point...my health is very important to me, and I NEED to quit smoking for good!!
Good luck to all my fellow quitters or soon to be quitters
