I Will Stop Smoke With Quomem / Zyban

Recommended Posts

Time to stop smoke - again....

I have been a heavy smoker for some 20 years. I was smoke free for 2 years, but started again just a month ago. Stupid me.

I rapidly started smoking 3 packs (60 cigs a day). No good! Morning cough and bad smell. My aim is to be smoke free again by December 31, 2005. New Year - no cigs!

My help will be the revolutionary medicine called Quomem/Zyban...

George I quit several months ago after 19 years, 20+ a day for at least 10 of those. I feel great & healthy I smell better, can taste better, have more energy & am saving a fortune. Stick with it. I used NiQuitin patches 21mg fo 2 months then used nothing. Stay strong & think of your health, as a diabetic you can't afford to take chances :o

Good luck! I smoke about a pack a day. The last time I quit I used Quomem and stopped for three months. (They do help). After that three months I wanted a cigarette as bad as I wanted one after the first week. I guess you have to REALLY believe they are hurting you and really WANT to quit.

I quit a few years ago after smoking on and off for about 18 years.

One thing that helped was developing a fitness (workout) plan to go along with my quit smoking plan. Running, calisthenics, and stregnth building exercise helped me to feel good about getting my body in shape. When the cravings hit, feeling good about exercising helped me to over come them and stay smoke free.

Good luck George. I hope your successful. Quitting smoking is difficult but it is not impossible. You can do it.

I hope to see you at the wedding without a pack of ciggies in the top pocket.

Maybe I should offer you some incentive as well... :o

I know you're a Chang man... but maybe something else?

I tried to quit a few times, but the longest I could go was one month. Then I went on Zyban. They say you need to take the medicine 2 to 4 weeks before trying to stop. After about two weeks, I quit.

Zyban really helps you with the cravings, but it won't make you want to stop. You have to want to stop smoking on your own. My doctor recommended taking Zyban for six months after I quit. I will caution you that it was difficult getting off Zyban as well. It takes a while to get used to not having an antidepressant in your system.

Good luck George.

Far from "revolutionary" George, Quomem/Zyban has been around for quite awhile. It will <deleted> you up no end!!! If you really want to stop Then Stop. Why would you want to replace one chemical with another :o Your BLOG is great reading, and I hope to see a prefix to each days entry that says " I didnt SMOKE today, because I didnt want to" Get your fat arse off the computer chair and spend a bit more time outside. Smell the roses, so to speak. Get rid of the FAT food, eat fruit and vegies, lean meats and small quantities of red wine. Exercise to your limit (and then some) and maybe the occasional cigar (with the red wine of course) :D and you stand a big chance of keeping both of your legs for a long time to come :D

Just read your blog George, the VERY, VERY best of luck to you. I'll be following your progress on the Quomem/Zyban very closely.

I also smoke and intend to give up in the New Year. I go back to LOS in a couple of weeks or so and it will be impossible for me to give in whilst there, as i'll have too much free time. Not an excuse, just reality.

I'll probably end up needing patches, gum, zyban, acupuncture and hypnosis, all at the same time :o but if it does the trick i'll try anything. :D

The hardest thing i ever accomplished in my life and hopefully will save me 10 years of my life.

I smoked for the best part of 35 years 40 a day in the end.

This is how I gave them up.

When I first saw my grandson I held him in my arms looking at the tiny hands and my son said to me Dad you will be able to teach him how to fish when he grows up just like you taught me.

Yes I said.

Traveling home and 4 cigs later on a 20 min drive the one time in my life that I realized that there was no way that I would see not to mind teach that child how to fish when he was older.

That was the moment with 15 cigs left in the box I binned them now I have a fighting chance.

I was 50 now nearly 16 months later I am still off them.

I was told that it was willpower Yes but also the power to live to at least leave some memories.

Life is so short live it don’t burn it away.
