That's some coping mechanism you have for being a loser. But, hey, whatever gets you through the day.

The extra good news, Obama is now guaranteed to win! Everything you support loses, because you're such a loser.

Thanks for another win!

You just can't stand it, can you?

What's it like being SUCH a loser every single day of your life? Must be maddening. No wonder you spend your days here crying and asking strangers to provide a dick for your oral fixation.

Frisbee has become addicted to adverse psychiatric effects the reason he is trying to control this string on Topix Boards. Soon it will be jump off a bridge or move to Whinerpeg where he might be welcome to join a bunch of Listerine and Airplane Glue addicts and hide behind a new name. It's too bad he saw the title of this string the proof is in the pudding.

I quit smoking for a month last summer and never did I felt like on Champix! After a week of taking this rat poison, I upped the dosage to 1 mg 2 times daily. I started getting depress, not knowing what to do and reduced my smoking to a few cigarettes. I still felt like smoking because I felt bored and I smoke when I'm bored. In the past, I have weaned off opiates and benzodiazepines... and it felt sort of very similar. By the end of week one, I started having restless legs syndrome (which caused agitation) that lasted for hours at night! As a sweet combo for feeling miserable and for insomnia, I had hot flushes! I also felt very low, almost suicidal, I became very agressive... I stopped taking the medecine and by the end of this day, the nasty side effects are mostly gone. I liked the strange dreams... but not being asked by my brother the next morning why I was swearing and punching in the wall at night! I do not remember this! I'm not blamming all on Champix, I think if you are having some issues, avoid. When I quit cold turkey, I just felt more angry and craved for the morning rush. I hate tobacco... the smell, the silly absent buzz... I'm just gonna quit cold turkey. I am really pissed I took this "medecine"! I think all you need to quit is a lot of will and dedication. There is no easy path.

I have just finished my course of champix and am feeling very fed up . I have experienced some strange things like sleep patterns and having my cycle every 2 weeks while on them.I feel that my husband didnt support me in stopping smoking but i did it 4 myself and am proud that i stuck with it. I think it depends on the person and how determined they are. Everyone is different!

Thanks for rubbing some of your bottomless well of LOSER onto Mitt.
He might have had a chance if you hadn't have supported him.

EVERYTHING you support LOSES, Because you are SUCH a LOSER!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Suck it, Chump!

Another day, another loss. Every day for the rest of your life, Loser.

How does it feel to be right about the election????

Of course, you cannot answer that because of that lunger you hacked into the tea cup while you were trying to read the tea leaves. That lunger didn't mean Romney was going to slide on home, it meant that your lungs are covering themselves in slime trying to protect themselves from your smoking.

And here you thought your scrotum was the smartest part of your body.

Hi. I have finished my course for 1 week after 6 months of taking champix. I am having broken sleep for the last 2 nights. I'm sure this will pass soon and am so happy that for the first time since I was 13 (am now 42) that i'm not dependent on nicotine or any drug.
I have not had any bad side effects from champix so I was lucky, this, for me was the easiest treatment to get off the smokes.

Chantix didn't help me quit smoking, but it did do some crazy stuff to my mind. I had the weirdest dreams but never any thoughts of suicide. I did finally quit cold turkey and it was amazing how easy it was once I put my mind to it. The thing that helped me was reading a lot of information on the web about the addiction to cigarettes and nicotine and why I smoked. Here are 2 sites that really helped me.

I once tried to quit smoking cold turkey years ago, but I had dreams about cigarettes chasing me. I spanked my kids with a belt more often than usual (not a real problem back then because they recognized that if you spare the rod your spoil the child) and slapped my wife (although she really did deserve it because she burnt the roast and I did not make much money at the time...pure carelessness on her part). Anyways, I realized how much cigarettes helped me calm down and I decided not to quit. Cigarettes have not hurt me and I have been smoking for 40 years. My wife died a few years ago from radon induced lung cancer. If smoking caused cancer I would have gotten it and not my wife. I don't know why they have to lie about smoking.

I think i am suffering a similar fate to some of the above. I am usually a placid kind of guy but since hitting week 3 of champix use I am ready to kick ass and not bother taking names. I am constantly on edge and the slightest of things pushes me over. i have not smoked in 2 weeks but the side effect of complete unrestrainable anger is starting to wear thin on my family. is there something i could take to calm me down as i am fearful of smoking again without champix at this stage?
