What happens when I stop the Wellbutrin/Zyban?

<t>Just had to get in here with a bit of a warning. The biggest problem with taking a pill to help you quit, is that sometimes you won't be able to tell withdrawal from side effects. <br/> I took Zyban once and it worked great! I didn't crave a cigarette at all. Just up and quit one day two weeks af...

Harpo Needs Support

<t>Harpo, I am not yet where you are, and cannot give any advice. I am, however, sending hugs and prayers your way. <br/> Try to look at this as a cruddy week, rather than smoking related. It just might be. <br/> I am right behind you, and looking to you to point the way. Don't get yourself lost!</t>

Thursday's Parade--Why can't we ever take another puff?

<r>I have quit smoking many, many times--so you now know how many times that I relapsed. It was always because I was going to become a "social" smoker. <br/> One time, I started on cigars. Just a few puffs in the evening--then in the morning, then sneaking them during the day--but being embarrassed ...

Be prepared to hear some confusing information

<r>This might not be the best place to put this--but I just had to share as I found the story rather amazing! <br/> Last night I called my 87 year old Grandma to let her know that I had quit smoking.
