Yeah, I'm addicted to the cancer sticks, too. I am trying desperately to quit, but I find that with more & more stress, I smoke more. *SIGH* about 6 weeks ago, I was down to 4 cigarettes a day, then with added pain and stress, I'm back up to half a pack again. LOL-I could try and use the excuse, "But they are ultra lights," but all that really means is that I'm using a smaller caliber bullet.
I've tried and succeeded with the patch before, so I know it's possible. But, I tried the patch again, and it made me so nauseated-just the smell of the patch makes me want to hurl. I wonder if it has anything to do with the other meds I'm on.
Anyway, yes, I smoke, and I hate it. BTW-I realize that those of you who may have never smoked (or had any other addiction) just want to scream, "STOP!" Believe us, if it were that easy, no one would smoke. Just a little addiction FYI.
FINALLY dx'd on 06/13/08
Vicodin, Neurontin, Ibuprofen for pain-which doesn't help, BTW
Zoloft & methadone (NOT for pain) for sanity-which doesn't help, BTW
Klonopin for anxiety (Guess what? Doesn't help!)
