I think it was Zyban.

antigua: Thanks for the heads-up. I'm still thinking about whether or not I should give the Chantix a try. Have you tried it, or heard of anyone who has tried it yet?

No I haven't I was on Zyban for 2 weeks before I quit then less than a week after I quit. I couldn't take it any more. So I quit both and never looked back. It almost been 12 years now. But there are times when I miss it. I know better though.

I have used it and it worked for me. There are lots of side effects listed,but I never had any. I would suggest you talk to your doctor and druggist and ask both of them if any medications that you take now( if any)would be affected by it. You can also go on line and read about it.

If you decide to use it be sure to ask the doctor about the starter pack( 4 wks of med for lots less $$) prescription. Chantix is very costly and is not cover by most insurance plans

That's actually why I'm seriously thinking twice about it. It's really expensive and a rep from my insurance told me that they are not going to cover the cost for it. Gonna give quitting w/o any meds one last try this coming new year. Who knows?

I'll bet the insurance will cover that method.... ya think? Then I hope they give you a discount when you're successful! Good luck to you!

My husband has been smoking on and off for years and has recently been trying to quit again. Our son got him the funniest gag gift for Christmas.."bury the habit"

Could be an alternative way to quitting! haha

Mark Twain said "To quit smoking is easy. I, personally did it 11 times."

Me cold turkey 7 years ago. Wasn't real easy, but I really wanted it.

@bigjr: Actually, my girlfriend did give me a starter kit for e-cigs this Christmas (I did mention to her that I really wanted to quit). I agree. So far, it's been working for me.

one thing i have to add is this,you have to want to quit,if you do not want to quit,then nothing will help you.
next i ask,why do you need something to aid you in quiting?
just set your mind to it,smoke your last cig,and then just stop,and dont look back.

That would be the ideal scenario, hideout. I tried that road a couple of times, but it hasn't worked. Sometimes, a little help definitely goes a long way. Since I started using the ecigs, it's been working really great for me. Progress is much slower than I'd like it to, but at least, there's some progress considering it's been close to two months and I haven't finished the starter kit my girlfriend has given me last Christmas.

Well that's great edwin biggest thing I learned the hard way is not to run out of supply's its easy to go buy a pack of smokes waiting on your stuff to arrive. Keep it up make sure to have a fresh battery when camping and drinking LOL
