I was prescribed the anti-depresant Welbutrin(?)with the dr knowing it helped to prevent the urge to smoke. IT WORKED!!! My stay on Welbutrin was not long, maybe a couple of months, but my cravings went away and stayed gone. I have been smoke-free for around 5 years. I remember how I LOVED to smoke. I've had some terrible situations in my life since then, and maybe once or twice tried of smoke a cigarette, thinking it would release my stress, but it just didn't taste good; one puff and it was put out.
I never used any drug to help quit smoking, which may be why I got in so much practice at quitting.

However, I recognize the issue with lighting one up later. For perhaps half a year after I quit, I would light one up every month or so, just to remind myself how foul they tasted. I never got past a single puff, either. I have no doubt that I made the right choice.

That means that there will now be a marketing strategy to sell these pills. Let the drinking bans begin. Prohibition is returning. Al Capone, rise from the dead.
Nice heroes you have.

medications are very dangerous, look for alternatives first.
My friend found help in the book Wanda Pratnicka 'Possessed by Ghosts' and Wanda herself.
I would recommend her.
