I had been a pack a day smoker for almost 20 years. I resolved to quit by New Year 2010.
I went to the Doctor before Xmas and got a prescription for a new medication that was available to assist with quitting.
You start taking it about 2 weeks before your quit day. Initially I had some minor side effects like hot flushes, change in sense of taste and vivid dreams. However, soon the ciggies started to taste unpleasant.
Anyway I am still taking the medication and have been smoke free for well over a month now. I feel much better – no more coughing. I also feel proud of myself for getting rid of a terrible addiction.
