Sorry, the above was me,
"Gr8tfulnancy" (or just Nancy). I missed my name, see I really am FOGGY-HEAD!

I wanted to respond to the previous posts, in that I definitely needed the Chantix to help with the physical aspects of this addiction. Cold turkey is not for me (probably not good for the family either!). Although I have noticed that in the past any slight irritation, annoyance, stress, or sometimes just even happy moments have been "okay, I'll just smoke this one out and it will go away" or "I'll feel better". So really when you quit you are learning to cope differently(for me at least). Without the cigarettes I find I need to frequently breathe and step back for a second, really re-evaluate - because now I can't go hide with that old nasty friend anymore.

So my point is, I think we all really do know why we smoke/smoked, but the process of changing the feelings about smoking, behavior, reactions and your actions is multi-faceted and "whole".

Okay, did that make sense? That's about as "Gestalt" I can get this morning, it's Day 3 no morning smoke and I have foggy-head a little bit... Nancy

Pete, if you mean whole-istic, as in "we must address why we smoked and what we got out of it and reinvent ourselves from the inside out while we take medication," then great, I agree.

But, if you mean we shouldn't take medication to help us quit I have to disagree. For the simple reason that Chantix WORKED for me and in my view ... smokers should do whatever works. Whatever works.

Need to lock yourself in a closet for 3 months - do it.

Need to take medication or become an exercise freak - do it.

Need to smoke a carton in one day to make yourself sick - do it.

Need to write "I am a quitter, not a smoker" on your arm, the bathroom mirror and your screen saver - do it.

Tracee,
Thank GOD I don't have to add quitting to my list of resolutions (again)! All I have to do is STAY quit which is WAY easier than quitting, in my opinion. I read though most of your blogs and you have some really inspiring stuff here. I am also really insipred to help others who are resolved to quit smoking. People who know me as a full on nicotine ADDICT are starting to ask me how I did it and how Chantix works. Its really cool to be able to actually set a good instead of a bad example for people. I agree with you on Philip Morris and Co. I was sick of being OWNED by them. Thanks for all the great insights through your blogs and page.
Peace,
Diva

Only holistic approaches work. Before you can heal the outer smoker you must "smoke out" the inner one.

Holistically yours,
