Hello there Joenewbie AKA Smokeless Joe :)

Appointment went well...had to explain what happen when I took the Zyban...She said she wasn't surprised since I tend to be sensitive to other meds and have always taken the minimalist side of things when it comes to taking meds. My doc mentioned a nicotine inhaler, but unfortunately with the program I am working with it's not offered as a quit aid...so patches it is for sure...sigh!! She faxed the new script over right away (from the computer...the things computers can do now-a-days is amazing)...so as soon as they come in the mail (hopefully Friday or Saturday) I will be an official quitter...little more time to rid myself of nicotine, though (that's where the sigh comes in).

On the bright side of things...I WILL no longer be a cigarette smoker...YAY!!

I see you have recognized your triggers...I have the same triggers...guess I'll have to find other stuff to do (except drive...have to get to work somehow, and I live way too far to walk or ride a bike) :) Did you change anything you do to help with the not smoking?

I like to play mindless games on the computer, too...but I like to smoke when I do it...oops!!

So your last 2 cigs were today...how are you doing?

I'm glad you are able to get some sleep now...but it is sad (like you mentioned) you have to take one pill to combat the effects of the other...but you seem to be a strong man, and are taking control of the habit and addiction...WOW...you should be really proud of yourself :)

Anyhow...must get some sleep...long day tomorrow being Turkey Day and all.

Have a great day tomorrow with your family and friends...and be thankful you have taken this step to be smoke-free :)

Hi Angela,

OMG!!! Day 20 and the pains you get when you stop smoking, I feel like I played Football and lost. But still smokeless :angel: The "very cherry" jelly beans help A LOT as not only do I chew them but roll them all around in my mouth, across my tongue and the key is not to choke on them lol. Then when that craving passes I go back to what I was doing.

It's been easy and hard, mostly hard as I had to cut down to 1 Chantix, the night time one was insane as it would not allow me to sleep for days at a time and my Doctor did not want me taking sleeping pills that long.

So as I am into day 20, tomorrow will be a tie for the longest I ever went without a Cigarette. Quit once before for 21 days then went back to it as I had no medication to help with quitting. This time with Chantix it will happen I am sure of that.

I am going to make this message 2 parts, 1 about me and the other about you. I am at work and have a meeting in 10 mins, I need my walk before the Meeting.

So I will say all is okay, my temper is getting a good work out. EVERYONE has offered to buy me a carton of Cigarettes :confused: But that is getting better also.

More............
