MUSSE! I'm on Chantix even as I type. I tried it for a week, and realized it really makes smoking totally unpleasant. By the end of the week, I would not even think about a cigarette all day, and in the evening sit around and wonder how I could how wanted one just last week. I'd still reach for one in the car, light it, and take half a draw and just throw it out the window.
I finally laid out the money for a month's supply. "They" say it take three months to break a habit, but since I only take one a day (instead of two) it'll last me two months. Then we'll see.
I'm like CoThuKob a bit, in not being totally sure I want to quit. I've only smoked for a couple years so I have lots of time to go before I notice how I can't breath anymore and my legs cramp on the way to the mailbox. I finally decided I just didn't want to be addicted to anything so incredibly stinky.
I still smoke one when extremely stressed, and I'm looking for some other coping mechanism. The comment about "taking a break, and hiding behind a cloud of smoke" is soooo true. It's such a total mental escape. And Micah smokes, so it will be hard to stay stopped.
I have about 10 cigarettes left. My plan, of course, is to not buy anymore. Then when I want one, it won't be here. I'd have to get in the car and go get a pack. Panic! No cigarettes! I agree it's a personal thing, but I also believe in support. I'm so half-hearted about it.....
