    Need to quit because of health.

    Hi, I need to quit smoking. I have bad stomach ulcers. As long as I keep smoking they won't get better. I also have bad anxiety and smoking makes it worse. I have been smoking for 30 years. I tried Chantixs and had really bad side affects. Tried the patch and smoked with the patch on. I really need help with this. Any suggestions.

    I'm sorry but, I don't have any suggestions for you. I'm right where you are... I need to quit smoking as well and one of the reasons I need to quit is health related. I have a bladder condition called interstitial cystitis and nicotine can cause the symptoms to be worse than normal. I just wanted to tell you that you are not alone in your efforts to quit smoking....don't give up!

        I am struggling as well after 40 + yrs of smoking and numerous attempts to stop. I believe in the power of prayer and ask that we all pray earnestly for each other. Cigarettes are soooo nasty. Why do we continue????? HELP!!

    You can always find support around people. Just don`t be afraid of it. I am happy you don`t, and thanks for sharing it with us. I had some depression problems. I can`t even imagine what would I if my wife doesn`t help me with it. Because I didn`t understand I had big problems.
    I figured out the connection between depression and smoking after reading this article:https://www.worldvaping.com/nicotine-replacement-therapy-nrt-efficient-way-to-quit-smoking/ Frankly saying I was shocked and stopped smoking immediately.
    After, my wife introduced me to do. Ann. She has helped US. I started to smile; it was the 2nd step after quitting. A few months later, I began to see results.
    All I can to suggest is to be close to your man, even if he says he doesn`t need you at this moment. Don`t listen to him)
    I wish you all the best!

    Don't give up!!! And dont give up on Chantix. I too started Chantix. And I have stopped it twice, nauseas and dizzy bad. It was lasting 3-4 hours a day, however I fought through it and have changed things up, like wait to take it until I have eaten a really good breakfast and drink lots of water. And once you get over feeling sick it is not that bad. I quit smoking today, I am fighting a little with it but I know it will be okay. I have a rubber band on my wrist and when I get the urge to smoke I snap it hard...Lol if that doesn't work I force myself to get up and motivate. I need to do this for my health and want to do this. And we can all get there together!!

    You can temporarily take patches, nicotine gum, inhalers, lasers and sprays. Because during the smoking cessation, your brain will be affected due to the lack of nicotine.
