I have an appt. January 12th to do this therapy. I was just wondering if any of you would take the time to read about it and give me some feedback. I have tried everything: cold turkey, patches, zyban, gum, everthing. I am having breast reduction surgery on January 31st. and must quit smoking. I really want to quit and feel this may be my last resort. I am crossing my fingers it works. They give you two prescriptions to take home to take for 2 weeks after treatment, atropine and scopolamine, will this be out of my system before surgery? Neither of these meds is on my list to avoid two weeks prior to surgery...
Congratulations for deciding to quit that lousy, stinky, no win habit. No, I'm sorry, I have not heard of that Welplex Center..but if I get time tomorrow, or later tonight, I will do a search, and look it over. I would tho, (if I were you) mention those 2 meds to your Dr., before your surgery date.
One thing I do want to say is, you will succeed ONLY if your motivation and desire to quit is GENUINE, 1OO% truly inside of you! Patches, gum, inhalors, all of that, don't MAKE us quit, they are only an aide to help make things a bit easier for us when we do quit. (I falied many times too, with the patch, gum, classes, you name it!) It was only when I decided in my heart and soul, that I was 1OO% committed,...willing to do anything to quit for good, was I able to actually do it! It's really (only) what's in our MIND that makes us quit for good!
My best wishes to you,...I hope you are ready, and I do wish you ever lasting success! :)

I have gotten the ok from my PS to go to the clinic so we will see how it goes. If it does not work, I will have to postpone my surgery until I am nicotine free. You'd think this would be motivation enough for me to go cold turkey but guess this nicotine has got a massive hold on me. It's not that I don't want to quit, BECAUSE I DO, more than anything!!
