no idea it's apparently also used to help quit smoking, but i have been witness to a lot of Wellbutrin-related behavior. stay far away from it.

Bradyphrenia is a slowing of thought processes. It can occur in Parkinson's disease and is one of the extrapyramidal side effects of antipsychotic medications.

Doesn't sounds like it's a good match for riding motos.

Re: Unofficial SoCal Quitting Smoking Thread

cold turkey works ...
BUT - for me, I gave up smoking many times. it worked sometimes for a while, but in the end I fell back on the habit.

Lat time, I decided not to give up smoking - I just did not smoke. No psycological pressure to myself, no chance to fail, 'cause I was not giving up smoking, I just decided not to have a smoke at the moment. So far 2+ years I think (as I have not given up, there is no fixed date)

My driving force: would I want anyone (my son for example) to take up smoking - no! So why do something I would recomend anyone else to stay away from ...

cheers
well done to all that succeded - keep at it, just don't light up!

However you decide to go about it, hang in there, Nick! We're rooting for you.

P.S. And, just my 2 cents, but aren't most of those side effects from the Chantix things you're probably going to experience when you're detoxing from nicotene anyway?
