I have been smoking since I was 16. I've tried the patch and that didn't work. The gum tasted like flavored tire rubber. I asked my Dr. for Chantix knowing what the side effects were and I am now more scared to take Chantix that to quit smoking. Anyone had the same experience and what did you do?
Check out electronic cigarettes. I had the same experience with the patch and gum. I came to the conclusion with the patch it was because I needed the act of smoking too. I got an electronic cigarette and immediately stopped smoking tobacco cigarettes. You can decrease the amount of nicotine in the cartridges and you aren't getting the tars and poisons you get in tobacco smoke. Eventually I will be smoking nothing but flavored water.
