I can only offer my heartfelt support, as I have struggled with this problem myself. Ultimately, I have to treat this like the 12-step people do - today I am not smoking. Tomorrow, I'll start again. I wish there was a magic bullet or a miracle drug, but no luck. I haven't smoked today, so all is well on Sunday.
Which Pill are you asking about?
If you are feeling chest pain while making love or taking a shower, you need to see your doctor immediately to rule out a heart attack or blockage of your heart arteries.
Please contact your doctor without fail.

Good for you trying to quit smoking. You know what they say, Don't quit quitting. Because one of these days you can. An anti-depressant can often be the impetus to being able to stop. But no matter what method you try, you have to really want to quit. Unfortunately, the cigarette companies have made cigarettes so much more addictive than they used to be. You didn't say why the wellbutrin is not good. What is bothering you about it? And why are you worrying about having a heart attack? Also why are trying to stop taking pain pills? To be trying to both quit smoking and stop pain pills at the same time, sounds like too much to do at the same time. You are no wimp. Take it easy more. Write more about yourself so that we can help you better. Sara
The patch works well but if your having bad dreams you need to take the patch off a couple hours before bed time as the nicotine will continue to enter your blood stream for a few hours after you remove it. The pamphlet states to prevent bad dreams or vivid dreams remove before bed time. Hope this helps.
I think it would be very hard to quit pain meds and smoking at the same time. I am on pain meds for my back and will probably be on them for the rest of my life. I did recently switch to an electronic cigarette and I love it. It does not have tobacco or all the bad stuff like carbon monoxide. Just water vapor and your choice of how much nicotine. It does not smell. No ashes or butts. Plus they are cheaper. About half the price of regular cigarettes. They are still relatively new so the verdict is still out whether they are 100 percent safe but they are much healthier than regular cigarettes. Just an option to think about if you have not tried them.
