Thread Name: BS: Do you want to stop smoking ?
Subject: RE: BS: Do you want to stop smoking ?
I used Zyban to quit smoking 7 or 8 years ago. I can't even remember how long now. My doctor said to start taking the pills and, when I felt ready, set a date to stop smoking. The cigarettes lost their pleasure component, but I was still smoking 2 or 3 a day. I decided that that wasn't quitting, so I decided that on my birthday, I would smoke as many as I wanted and then no more. Haven't had a cigarette since.

A couple of weeks ago, I had a little cigar. It was very nice, and I will probably have another next year at the Renaissance Festival for the Order of the Burning Leaf Smokeout. That much I can handle.

Your mileage, of course, may vary.
