Cool quit smoking

EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT... but i'll share my experiences. I've tried Zyban... didn't work for me. In fact, it made me MORE irritable. The patch DID work for me... but I didn't use it as instructed (tried to cut corners, skip steps, etc) and invariably started smoking again. MOST people I know who quit successfully used the patch and used it religiously AS INSTRUCTED on the box. Oddly enough after starting Prozac I noticed my withdrawals from quitting smoking virtually gone. USE the patch, USE a support group, USE Prozac or Zyban... whatever works DO IT. It can be done, and there are enough options/aides out there now... NO EXCUSES!

I quit smoking (after 13 years) Sept. 27, 2000 and am THRILLED!! I use Nicorette gum for when I have cravings (usually about 3x a day).

I think before you can quit, you have to be ready mentally. Everyone comes to a point where they feel they are done, they've had enough and I think that is when you KNOW you are ready. Thank God I FINALLY came to that point!!!

GOOD LUCK TO THE REST OF YOU!
