To Anonymous I never said my son's ADHD was the reason I'm sick,anyway it's hard to quit smoking when you're under a lot of stress as I am but some of you came up with some great answers and I'll try to quit.I'm literally down to one cigarette a day but does anybody know of Welbutrin XL helping you quit easier besides gums and patches?

  • If you are down to one cig a day, you can do this. I was to one a day for six months! Then one day it was like...why am I doing this to myself?

  • An anti depressant is not made to help you quit smoking. This is a will power issue that only you can fix.

  • Welbutrin was created as a antidepressant and then doctors realized it made their patients quit smoking. It is now marketed under the new name of Zyban. My husband and my mother used it and both quit completely. Both have been smoke free for 7 years.

  • Sara, they have found that MANY medicines have other benefits other than their original purpose. It doesn't make the use any less valid.

  • Qutting smoking by using a pill is usually a quick fix. Learning how to control your stress without medication is the best way to quit smoking.

  • Have you ever quit smoking Sara? I smoked for 20 years and quit. It is a hell of a lot harder then you think.
