Hi Toni: Last time I successfully quit smoking, I used hypnosis + the nicotine patch and promised myself I would only quit for three years since that seemed easier than forever. Welbutrin (or Zyban) also helps a lot, but I cannot take it since my last surgery at the proper dose because of the constipation and insomnia side effects. The patch really works for me - keeps my mind off the habit part while the withdrawal is easier - too bad i started smoking again post-op, and still can't find the will to want to quit again. keep hoping for a heart attack so i won't have to deal with more cancer in the future. Plus, both my parents had Parkinson Disease, and there is a connection with smoking - it reduces risk of PD - due to the dopamine neurotransmitters. too early to be coherent. like i need more insomnia... i was a little lonely this weekend too. work has gotten so stressful with a new president from McKinsey that I cannot concentrate on anything except how to find something else while still in post-op limbo. when i am stressed like this, i withdraw and the depression gets really bad. Karen
