Just thought I would share my view on my appointment last night with the doc. Some of you will agree with him and those of you who have read Allen carr's The Easy Way will not.
I went see the doctor simply because last time I was doing really well on my quit and gave in to the anger - meaning it made me so depressed that I kept snapping that I thought it better to smoke that to be a witch for the rest of my life and so I caved. Well since then I read Allen Carr and am now on day 6 of this quit. The only thing that worries me is the irritation and snappy part of me that I know is on its way and wanted the doctor to give me advice regarding that. He didnt really know much about it (he said so himself) although he was keen on telling me how many people fail to stop (!?), basically was trying to get me to start taking Zyban (which as you know requires you to smoke whilst on it and that is something I dont want to do) and then suggested gum and inhalers, i mean the last thing I (personally) want is anything that has nicotine in it!! I even suggested to him some of the things I had heard from this forum i.e. B6 vitamins or herbal remedies and he kind of agreed and that was it....Is that the best help us quitters can expect these days?
Well my conclusion was to just keep at it, I dont want NRT because for me it just prolongs the process...at the end of the day you still need to come off the NRT at some point and the the psychological games will still start so I would rather get it over with....it seems determination, willpower, this forum and probably B6 will get me through this!!
