Hi my screen name name is PugsandBoxers, I have been smoking for 40 years. I am now smoking Marlboro Lights 100s brand and 30 cigarettes per day, at my worst I was smoking Marlboro Lights 100s brand and 45 cigarettes per day. I want to quit smoking because I am having trouble breathing. I cannot afford them. I am over having cigs control me. They stink.. I started when I was 16 years old and have tried to quit 1000 times before.

I see you are here again, lol, I had some technical difficulties at first...you will learn to navigate in here and you'll see, that some in here are quite high-tech...others are just plain...like me w/an occasional for fun.
I just noticed you mentioned Chantix. I used it. It works great. I had to 1/2 and 1/4 dose it...it made me extremely agitated on the full dose. That is one of the many side effects. I had to stay away from caffein for a while and I still am staying away from alcohol. You can break the pills in half (or cut) and cut the halves into quarters...I checked w/my doctor and my pharmacist. Keep aware for the side effects and try lowering the dose if you feel you need to. You can also take Wellbutrin along w/Chantix, because I have a couple of different times when I ran into some problems in my quit. My doc said it was ok...to take them both, but always check w/your doctor.
Nice to see you, again!!!!!!!!!! hollyo
