      MAE,

      Pauly, I became suicidal on Chantix, but some are successful.

      My day today has been very frustrating trying to do a money transfer.

      Good evening Abbers,

      The day is almost over, geez!
      I've been busy doing odds & ends & the time just flies.

      Mick, enough with the dentist or do you two have something special going on? Ha ha!! I hope everything turned out OK

      TT, I am so sorry about your job situation.
      My parents pushed me into nursing (my mom was a nurse too). I really wanted to 'explore my options' but they had full control back in those days. One thing I can say is I never had a problem getting a job. There was & still is a nursing shortage here. I really hope something opens up for you very soon.

      PQ, my sister-in-law got very mean & aggressive on Chantix. So much so that I stayed away from her for a few years. She ended up smoking again anyway so it was all kind of a waste on her. If you decide to take it I am sure you will have better support from the medical community.

      SnoopStar, CONGRATS on 6 months, yay!!!

      Hi there to pauly, pie, Sam, SK & everyone!
      Det, hope you are OK buddy!

      Peace to everyone tonight!

      Snoopy--"remember it". Hubby and I went to a concert this week and right before the show I said "well, at least I'll remember seeing this show". He laughed. Which is good---because as serious as it was, its good to be able to joke about it.

      PQ-I first took Chantix before the internet was so evolved. I probably would have been scared to take it and questioned every little slight twinge. You hear all the horror stories and they tend to stick out in your mind. I know a lot of people in my family who have taken it, quit and stayed quit. These were hardcore smokers---who could have smoked me under the table any day. I started again only because booze came back into my life. I mean who wants a beer without a cigarette? Anyways, I've had success the second time. The only side effect I can really report is the dreams. These are awesome dreams---they are so hard to explain---but, certainly not nightmares. I know people who continued taking the Chantix after they were well into the quit---for the dreams---they are that good! Frankly, I can be a bitch----and Chantix is not to blame for that

      Pauly--That Wellabutron made my skin literally crawl. One dose and that was it for me. Everyone reacts differently to things. Scary stories are not helpful when someone is trying to quit a habit that will kill them. I know that everyone is trying to be helpful. I just can't imagine that we would fill someone full of scary stories if they were trying everything possible to quit booze. I'd much rather try Chantix, monitor the SE----possibly have a successful quit than to continue smoking----with the side effects of heart attack, lung cancer, stroke---that are much more likely if one continued smoking.

      TT---hang in there. It hasn't been that long, although I am sure it feels like forever for you. I have no idea what kind of work you did.....but are there options on freelance.com or some sort of consulting. Lots of companies want to outsource, rather than hire an actual employee. It is a new world out there. It took me sometime to get my shit together and figure out how I could use the skills I had without going back into what I regard as a death industry. Now I am doing much more interesting work than I ever thought possible. Give yourself some time. I am hoping that they gave you a fairly good severance package. It is so much easier when you reach the other side---trust that you will get there----even when you are certain you won't. I was pretty sure there was nothing in the world that I could do---which was ridiculous thinking on my part. Because at least in the US there are so many ways to make money or have a side hustle until you find what you want.
