I Need To Get Help To Stop Smoking.

Hi everyone. I'm a 28 yr old female. I just came from the dentist where he told me I would have to find around eleven thousand dollars for various dental problems I have. I think most of these problems are because I'm a smoker. I started smoking when I was sixteen and now I can't seem to stop. If I don't smoke I become angry, nervous and just plain miserable. I want to quit cold turkey but I'm very scared and very addicted. I need help!

I am 28 also, Stated when I was 16. Quit once for three months. Started again a night me and my boyfriend were out drinking. UGH! So, mad I ever started agian and having to go though this again. I did it cold turkey last time. This time I am using Wellbutrin SR, Bupropion (Aplenzin, Wellbutrin, Wellbutrin SR, Wellbutrin XL) is used to treat depression. Bupropion (Wellbutrin XL) is also used to treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD; episodes of depression that occur in the fall and winter each year). Bupropion (Zyban) is used to help people stop smoking. Bupropion is in a class of medications called antidepressants. It works by increasing certain types of activity in the brain. I am already depressed so this drug is a mulch-purpose for me. My quit day was today. :( I smoked two cigs today and am going nuts. I know I never had smoked the first one, because it sets the tone for the whole day! I know what your saying. It is one of the worst feeling in the world. I feel like I can't figure out how to be me without smoking, I know that sounds crazy, but its like ok.....Whats next! My father was in the hospital for 22 days due to a heart attack and is still not himself and he may never be the same. He quit when he was in the hospital bc he had too, but he still is not smoking!After seeing him like that on a ventilator for 9 days not being able to come off it bc his lungs where to week to work on there own. I am quitting for his support and so my kids don't have to hopefully ever see what I seen my dad go though. Good luck to you! We can do this!!! I know its hard. I just can't get over how stupid I feel for letting something so ridiculous control my life!

You must try quit smoking pills , like chantix and champix it may help you as soon as possible to quit smoking, or else make your mind set not to smoke . wish you all the best :P

Ouchies, 11 thousand! Is there a group you can join in your area that might help? :-) In the uk the people who do the patches and gum have help programmes! Good luck :-)

Thanks. No, I Live in South America. Not much help for that sort of thing here.
