    • My husband smoked for 28 years and FINALLY quit 3.5 years ago with the help of Chantix.  I strongly believe that quitting smoking is much like dieting...you have to be doing it for the right reason.  You can’t do it because you know you should or because your children want you to do it.  You HAVE to want it...A LOT.

      My husband “tried” to quit many times, creating disharmony in our home each time.  When i asked him why he was quitting, he said “because i know i have to.”  I told him to stop putting himself and his family through the hell of his quitting until he WANTED to quit.  When he decided that he wanted it, he conquered it.  

      Hypnosis, therapy, drug-support...i’m all for any assistance that works as long as the “quitter” WANTS to quit.

    • Don’t recommend it!  I have several friends who did it quit for a short period of time then right back at it.  

      My husband quit almost a year ago with the help of the patch.  He smoked for over 15 years, and has not had one since he quit.  

      Good luck!

    • Anon...my husband would occasionally have a cigarette when he had a couple of beers but he told me awhile back that he is done, done, DONE...no desire to smoke one bit.  He does admit that he occasionally does crave one but not that badly and not for very long.  (whew)

      His temper was surprisingly steady while he was quitting and i do recall him telling me he had some wild dreams but his thought process has always been steady, too.  He gained 25+ pounds in the last 3 years but he started a diet/work-out  program on January 4th and has lost all 25 thus far...he’s not working on a “bonus” 15!

      He sounds just about perfect, doesn’t he?  Hahahahahaa...

    • having written an article on hypnosis on helping troubled teens-if I had a problem like that, I’d be open to trying it.
