I know of this, my roommate has used theese but he switched back to regular, anyway i have ben wanting to get my hands of these ever since he let me try

One thing is whenever i caught myself taking a smoke i ask myself: do i really need them, let me tell you it miinimized my smoking by 2/3. i am not as strong as my mother who just stopped smoking when she said that it was enough so im hoping if i get those electric smokes i get the puch i need to stop smoking the remaining 1/3 of my smokes

Default Re: Welcome to Smoking Cessation Support

I have quit using Chantix and I have quit cold turkey but I always go back to smoking. Usually it happens when I feel discouraged or stressed or just when I decide to have a glass of wine. Then I think I'll just have one or two and stop again but it doesn't work that way.
I have begun to realize that I become depressed after having been quit for about a month or so and I do feel better for a little while when I light up...but then I find myself back on the downhill slide to a pack a day and all the bad symptoms..aches, pains, cough etc. that goes along with that.
I think that if I can possibly deal with the depression that I think is underlying the smoking addiction I may be able to quit for good.
Any comments?

I would suggest Chantix and the e-cig. the e-cig gives you the almost feeling of smoking because you do inhale and exhale smoke. Helps with the hand to mouth addiction.

Hi there...your post hits home with me. I too quit with Chantix back in January, then relapsed...thought I could have one cig just to prove to myself that I was in control and didn't need cigs anymore. Then I quit a series of times after this, each lasting 3 days, 5 days...the longest was 2 months using Chantix, for the second time! I can manage to quit for a few days and then buy a pack, finish the pack, quit again for a day or two, then buy another pack. Usually the third day, I get really tired and really down and the thoughts in my head cause so much tension in my body and drive to the store to get a pack. The relief is temporary but relief nonetheless. Everytime, I think... after this pack I will make an effort to quit again and this is the kind of vicious cycle I have been going through. Now I can't even get through 1 day without smoking. I have read everything there is about smoking, addiction, quitting etc. but I suspect depression is sabotaging my motivation and will to stop again and stay stopped. What are the symptoms of your depression?
Mine are just lethargy, overall feeling down, and unmotivated and uninterested in doing things. I also get bouts of anger and impatience which is not like me.

Hi DocJohn, thanks for the welcome. I posted on the 20th of Sept. and have not had a reply. I'm not sure how to use this forum. Seems complicated. Maybe I am doing something wrong. I posted in smoking cessation because trying to quit again is my main issue right now.

I was diagnosied with copd four years ago and it has been stable, now my lungs are declining. My doctor is telling me that six months from now i will not be able to do what I am doing now. I have been smoking a pack a day but am having trouble with trying to quit. I know it is killing me but I keep lighting up!

If you're on PsychCentral forums, though, I'm assuming you probably have some sort of mental disorder. Please be advised that many people with mental disorders -- myself included -- have VERY bad side effects with Chantix. Just a word of caution...

I do know of several people who have found the e-cig to be very helpful in quitting. My husband and I tried them, though, and found they irritated our throats too badly to continue using them.
