Avatar f tn Sorry if I haven't been around much but I started chantix to quit smoking .Today is day 5, I've had 3 ciggs and they aren't very good. I'm guessing it works well. I hope all of you guys are doing well. Tim, Shoulder has to be a hurting place on the body. I hope your back to normal(?) soon. Again i'm sorry if I disapointed any of you. Now I am working on a tobacco habit. The weed was an isolated incident. S--- happens. SORRY. Hubby's ignoring me again, so I'll be out a while. No baseball even.
Avatar f tn First the weed, back in Feburary, Then the pills in early May Today I just took A Chantix to quit these damm ciggs. I'm tired of this weezing. I say I love my kids so much, well I need to be around. Dammit! Hi guys!
Avatar n tn Statistically the tests will all come back normal and I think it far more likley a result of your smoking many years than the Chantix you took for a short period of time. Hopefully you'll be off the weed forever. Glaucoma or elevated IOP is a risk for vascular occlusions but not for AION but tobacco use is.
Avatar f tn i quit afew years ago, i quit oxycontin, xanax, weed, and cigs at the same what the worst time of my life nothing compared to what im feeling now wich is why i know im gonna make it past these wd's...the cigs would have been nice to wait on for a month or so, but everything i smoked i got alot of anxiety bc i was quitted xanax also so i just didnt even want to feel that and quit as well... you can wait a month so you can at least have something for now...
Avatar n tn Hi I'm a 53 yr old mom, and back in Feb I quit smoking weed, In may I came clean with the doctor about abusing the pain meds, and two days ago i started taking chantix to quit smoking. Those damm ciggs. One thing at a time, I'm knocking them off the list or I won't have much more time on this earth. After reading your story I'm really proud of you. Damm good job. Welcome to the forum. You will find alot of support and amazing people out here.
Avatar f tn I live with my boyfriend and his family and they all hate it. They make me feel horrible about it and i just cant stop... i cant believe im hurting my baby girl like this :'( What do i do?
Avatar f tn I think education is another step forward and so, when I quit, I tried very hard to get to the root of my addiction, to learn why I did it and then with a LOT of support from here and at home, tons of willpower and prayers, I took back control of my life. There are no more quits for me because I will never give in again and thats why I stay here and thats why I read the articles at : ) Good luck to you and if you need support, we are here for you.
Avatar n tn And most important, you will get your energy back and your short term memory will begin to heal itself. Stop the weed and I can almost guarantee that inside of a week you will feel more like the social, outgoing, funloving 23yr old you used to be. Anxiety and sleeping might be a little tricky at first, but just hang tough and these problems will smooth themselves out. I used weed to sleep FOREVER, but now guess what?
Avatar m tn If you want to know how it will feel like put a straw in your mouth and breath through it only and run up and down some stairs a while. Good luck with the Alpha-1 test.
Avatar f tn I tried the chantix, which was really expensive, and it did make me not want to smoke at all...But it made me so nauseated, that i could not take it anymore, and i really tried...I have heard that it has helped some with detoxing from opiates too.. I do remember when you went to see your son...Have you been clean since then? that was a long time ago, or did you go twice? I would be so darn proud too, if i were you...I love men in Navy uniforms...YOU deserve to Be PROUD!!!
Avatar n tn Be locked up with fellow Nicorette addicts and we can all kill each other and eat our way into oblivion. The Chantix side effects scare me. I'm thinking.. I won't get cancer on the gum. Is this the case?I sure want to believe that. Maybe we all can pick a date and everyone will stop chewing 25% at given intervals- we can form like a Mickey Mouse Club for Nicorette Addiction- and we can support one another. Let me know....
199177 tn?1490502134 I'm addicted to cigarettes for forty years and have ruined my health over it, this will be my seventh try, and the difference is that this time I'm trying Chantix and I have to quit whether it works or not. I have quit many substances including herion and this is by FAR the worst for me psychologically & physically. I will join the smoking forum too but think this one will be helpful also. Maybe together we can make this hell that is addiction a thing of our pasts.
503422 tn?1218560541 no. I smoked a bit of weed in my teens (cuz everyone was) and I'm right now dealing with a dependency to pain killers (cuz I needed them after a very bad illness and 3 surgeries) but they're totally unrelated to my smoking. I quit smoking in Jan 05.
Avatar f tn I am proud of you both you have done so well. And Jade59 you have like a double whammy! Nicotine and weed. Oh my gosh I am not sure I would have done them both but I guess why not. Get it overwith all at once. I dont seem to have had alot of withdrawal from the nicotine but perhaps that is still to come but I dont think so. Take care to you both, have happy weeks with tons of love.
Avatar f tn Secondly, it is a pretty poor excuse for logic if he smokes cigs and weed, to say that weed is not as bad. What does it matter to him? He smokes both.
359574 tn?1328364024 And it's been many, many years since I smelled any pot, so I'm not sure, but I think I can tell when she's smoking weed (which her family intervened to make her quit, but I don't think it took.) I ask my dh, and he can't smell anything, but I've always been the canary in the cave with those things.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Friends! Welcome all Tramadol warriors. We're all very glad to see you. Please come in and share.
Avatar f tn No judging here, I'm kinda on the same page and trying my hardest to stop! I'm 7w and I'm trying super hard!

Avatar f tn Secondly go to the web site and read, and read and read some more. This is a great place for articles and will prepare you for what to expect from day one if quitting cold turkey. I quit cold turkey myself but certainly understand that that is not for everyone. Nothing worked completely for me until giving it over to God to do it for me cause I am just not strong enough. Patches are good as long as you use them as directed and take it off at bedtime or you will not sleep.
252556 tn?1189759431 I have spent a good deal of my afternoon reading these posts (learning) and believe / pray it will help me in my quest to quit abusing a certain substance. I am a 39 year old man with a family history of addiction. (specifically, alcohol) ( Some family members have sought help & remained sober, other are actively drinking & some have died, or will eventually with their addiction) I grew up attending Alateen. I also am a multiple substance abuser. (God it feels good to admit it.
407149 tn?1211736107 It happens, oh, let's say, every couple of months, and the smell comes and goes, but now it's constant, every time I breathe in AND out. It's sickening! Any help?
Avatar n tn Another friend had come over and we had smoked some weed. I still felt fine but had been having mild headaches a few days prior. And all of a sudden my symptoms came back. I got that feeling of pressure on the top of my head and the cool sensation and then that disorientation or faintness feeling and then the insuring panic attack from the fear of "what's going on with me." After that I went to another room and tried to calm down then decided to drive home.
192055 tn?1263559137 My Husband is 54 and in January he stopped smoking with the help of chantix..........then he developed diabetes......he believes as some of the reports are saying that the chantix may have caused it......well recently after a great deal of stress (money-health) his penis has retracted (just like others describe- like a turtle)and he says even when urinates it is "in" .
Avatar n tn It seems to be located within the windpipe or esophagus. There's no pain, just a friction/rubbing sound and sensation. The sound is especially audible if I open my mouth while twisting my torso. Three years ago I saw my Dr about it and she ordered a chest CT scan, which was clear. My concern is that the scan began at lung level and didn't cover my lower throat area, and that's where I think this is coming from. I'm also concerned because since then, it has become much more pronounced...
Avatar n tn I have had chronic bacterial infections in my sinuses, tonsels and throat for the past two months and have been on many rounds of antibiotics, my infections are gone but I was left with a strong deep cough and now phlegm and swelling in my throat. No doctors have been able to tell me what it could be, my ear nose throat specialist said it was most likely acid reflux disease, but I don't buy that.
Avatar n tn And I'm wondering if tramadol is stronger, the information I've found on this drug conflicts and I'm just wondering if you could tell me if tramadol would be stronger than the drug i'm currently using and wether it is adictive. And what type of drug is it, the only type of drug which helps my pain are narcotics nothing else does anything.
Avatar m tn I'd lie on the floor and rock for between a few minutes up to 6 hours or more. I'd rock on the floor and day dream and it seems that the rocking motion would help me day dream and I'd end up in almost in a trance. It completly messed up my education... instead of studying I'd body rock and dream whenever possible.... I mean I was totaly addicted to it, it may seam strange but it got worse from childhood.
Avatar n tn I really thought that the Para Gard was going to be the answer for me. My husband and I have been married for almost 15 years and we have six children. I can not take birth control because of family history of breast cancer. I would not reccommend the Para Gard. I have had severe cramp and horrible monthly cycles. I nver had any kind of health problems or female problems until I used the para gard.
