I tried chantix, I had serious problems with nausea, dizziness and anxiety, also gave me really bad dreams (the patch gave me good dreams!) with the new warning labels, I would not try it again, make sure to discuss w/ your doctor the side effects, and what to watch out for... But it did a good job at killing the cravings!

Thanks for the input ebbica!

 

My doctor supports the medicine and said he has had many more positive responses to it then negatives.

 

I know it will affect everyone differently- some people love some people hate it- so I figure it's worth giving it a shot and see how it is for me.

 

I'll def keep you all updated when I start!

I'm working on quitting smoking as well! Something that I know has helped me a lot is investing in a good hookah. I slowly weened myself off of cigarettes and started smoking only hookah tobacco, which is way better for you (none of the preservatives or tar) and then slowly started mixing in shisha with it (which is just a flavored herb). Basically I'm just smoking air three times a week, and it's killed my cigarette cravings basically completely.

The only down side to this is that if you have nosy neighbors, there is a strong chance that they may think you're sitting on your porch smoking pot.....which is slightly embarassing. the hookah looks a bit like a bong.

Well, I've got one ciggy left, a box of patches, and a FH who's freaking over our wedding expenses. I'm gonna put on a patch before I go to sleep, go out for one more smoke, and give this another go. Maybe if I can just get to Hawaii where no one smokes, I'll actually have a chance this time!!! wish me luck!!

I know a lot of people who used Chantix and it's worked for them... for those who have smoked for a very long time might look into a Nicotine Replace Therapy (NRT). I think its easier for closet smokers to quit smoking if they aren't addicted to the nicotine. But for those who are it's a little more complicated. I think many of you ladies are on the right track. Get the support you need along with a nicotine replacement to help with the urges... Good luck!!

Today is day 5 for me with no ciggs... I always thought getting over the 2 or 3 day hump would be the hardest part, but day 5 is not easier at all! I know it'll take a long time, but I'm just so antsy, irritable and impatient. Ugh!

 

Stay strong ladies wink.gif

I didn't start today. Instead, I ended up buying a pack of Vietnamese Marlboro Lights on the street for 5 bucks! They're so gross, I can't even tell you!! Anyway, tomorrow's another day...

Hey, I just found this forum and I think it's great to have a little support system!

I actually quit recently after smoking for over 10 years!!!

If anyone wants to try a different method (no patches, gum, drugs, etc), it worked for me.

I know it will sound ridiculous at first, but I swear it worked for me and others I know.

It's actually a book! You have to keep smoking as your reading it, and at the end it has final instructions that are totally easy to follow. Basically it doesn't lecture on how bad it is, but shows you how to be in a certain state of mind while quitting.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
