Yes. I was on it for two weeks and quit. Funky dreams are a side effect. Like a dumb ass I quit taking them and gave my buddy the ones left over.......Started smoking again. YOU HAVE TO TAKE THEM ALL. I was told from 3-6 months. Yes they work if you follow the directions.
Going to get more soon.

Felt fine. The day(s) you go to full strength you may get a bit nauseous. I found it to be almost a miracle. I have smoked for a looooooong time. This stuff works. I just did not take them long enough. I stopped for 3 weeks and started getting the cravings back slowly. By then my buddy had gulped all of the left overs down. Go get the script.

I tried the "manly" way. Every man that got on my nerves had his life in jeopardy.

It helps with the frustration...you'll be pissed off all the time, grinding your teeth , not fun to be around, etc.


I quit twice....the first time was definitely the easiest of the two. Whatever you do, don't go back after you've quit. It takes 3 weeks for the physical addiction to die off, but the mental desire will always be there.

Try to quit as soon as you can. I saw what smoking did to my Dad. His chest X-Rays weren't very pretty.

Good Luck.

That's just it. The medicine blocks the receptors in your brain that are craving the nicotine. Trust me, it works.

Yeah, there are a lot of desires that we have to control anyway (i.e. cheating, lying, stealing, etc.)...It's just one more thing to add to the list. The nice thing about losing the physical addiction is that the headaches/mood swings stop, and you take control of your body, whereas before, the cigs had control over you.

Just thinking about how cigs had control over me got me extremely pissed off and helped me to quit....I literally picked up my last pack, broke all the cigs, and said "fuck this". After quitting, you'll look at other smokers as weaklings and it'll help keep you on top
