Hmmm. I quit smoking for six years but took it up again, so I'm a bit sceptical.

Thats right - its called Champix. Its like zyban without side effects and really high success rate. take for 2 weeks, keep smoking til day 10, then stop completely i believe.

I'm seeing my doc about that next week. Zyban did nothing for me. I also read Allen Carr's book and puffed my way through it. Was v sad to see he died of lung cancer.

It's much easier to stay off em here now. I'd been quit a few years but picked up a couple here and there in the ME, mainly because people smoke everywhere and eveyone smokes. When you're not surrounded by it it's just not a temptation.

I'd love to be able to quit right now. The company for the house I'm renting doesn't allow smoking in the building itself, but I can smoke out on the patio. I don't do this as it sets off the neighbors dogs and they bark incessantly, so I usually go out the front. Unfortunately, we also have a lot of black widows out there and other undesirable crawlies, so I spend as little time as poss out there.

Between that and the dog sleeping on my lap, causing me to not want to get up and disturb her, I hardly smoke at home. Still smoke the same amount during the day, though, and if I try to stop, I turn into Linda Blair and my head turns 360 degrees.
