I was just thinking of making a thread on my relapse. But I only mention one of my attempts here before.


I'm on day 2 getting off the Bupropion (I couldn't quit on it). I vomited like crazy today. Not sure if it was med withdrawal or the morning chain smoking rush. I tried Chantix before, that worked better, but made me hypomanic and paranoid.

Had 40 days off tobacco while on the Juul e-cig ,had about 60 days tobacco free on the patch. Not sure if I get cocky every time or just do not pay attention to the disease.

What I am realizing is that I've tried almost everything, and no long-term abstinence from tobacco, definitely no cold turkey nicotine-free living.

Really hope that you can shut that AV down, wisc. As someone with very compromised lung capacity, I can say that anything that can risk a compromise to your lung health is absolutely not worth it.

Please stay strong.

not as smooth starting this time but I haven't bought a pack since Friday. Like this morning I bummed one and have been having a hard time with urges. Still committed as with the alcohol. I am committed to living healthy mind and body.

I believe you can do this wiscsober

Things like playing the tape through and urge surfing work with cigarettes too
