I spoke with my doctor about welbutrin today (I already had an appointment set up) and decided its worth trying e-cigs first before medication. 

I'm about to work a fuckload of overtime (8 12 hr midnight shifts followed by 4 more 12 hr day shifts - with a 24 hr break after midnights to 'adjust') so I'm gonna stick with what works until that's over.

In the meantime - I'd appreciate some e-cig brand recommendations.  The ones I've tried were the disposable kind and they pretty much suck. 

I've often thought I'd prefer an e-cig if it was more like a pipe.  The weight of them doesn't feel right if that makes sense.

To put it another way, I think e-cigs are like N/A Beer to an alcoholic

I have thought about e-cigs quite a bit.  I've used them in the past for situations where smoking is prohibited.  I've found they work good as a 'crutch' to go longer between real cigs, but I don't seem to get enough of a 'fix' from them and they make me want a real cig that much more. 

I also don't think I'd have the willpower to stay completely on e-cigs were I to try to switch.

I *do* think that, had I bought an e-cig instead of that pack in west Virginia I might still be a nonsmoker today.

My experience with weaning or nicotine replacement has been that it keeps you addicted and prolongs the misery.

I love a nicotine buzz.  I smoke enough now that I don't get that buzz, but I know if I cut down, the buzz will come back.

i've been about a pack a day for the last 20 years (oh gawd)

i read alan carr's (sp?) "quit smoking the easy way" and was able to quit for about 6 hours - but, i didn't start reading it with the intention to quit.  just read it to see how the hell reading a book could possibly make someone quit smoking.  that first cig after the book was . . . a psychological experience . . .

tried to quit cold turkey many times and always caved on day 3,4 or 5

cutting down doesn't seem to work for me as the less i smoke the more i like it. 

i did quit once for 7 months using chantix.  chantix made quitting super easy, but everything else about it fucking sucked and i would not do it again.  i took chantix for a total of 2 weeks.  1 week as a smoker and 1 week without.  i couldn't stand chantix any longer than that.  i had pretty annoying constipation and headaches for a couple months.  almost rear ending someone on my motorcycle in west virginia broke my resolve after that quit and it was a slow but steady decline after that.

however, the latest ad campaign on tv is starting to get to me and i'm thinking i should give it another go.

i'm considering trying wellbutrin.

my concern now is that my biggest issue with no nicotine is incredible crankiness and i spend a large chunk of time looking after 3 kids - ages 5, 6 and 7.  the 5 year old being autistic is a complicating factor.

i only smoke outside which should help come winter time.  feels pretty dumb to go huff down a cigarette when it's cold as fuck outside.

anybody have any experience with wellbutrin?  or any other suggestions for combatting severe irritability?

3 stars - amusing thread
Might read again.

Agreed - sweet potato fries are not so good.  Tolerable if you drown them in mustard.

However, baked with pineapple and cinnamon with marshmallows melted on top, yams are a delighter.

Deckard: Youíre in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, itís crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on it's back. The tortoise lays on it's back, it's belly baking in the hot sun, beating it's legs trying to turn it'self over, but it canít, not without your help. But youíre not helping. Why is that?


What the everloving shit?!

Who is this Deckard person?  A quick google of the name didn't lead me to anything I would immediately connect.
Rick Deckard, using the Kobayashi Maru to find out if Harry Potter is the Kwisatz Haderach.

Was he?
He used to be in a barbershop quartet in Skokie, Illinois. The baritone was this guy named Kip Diskin, big fat guy, I mean, like, orca fat

I've tried very hard to help him get through his homework, but he has an unusual personality trait in that anything remotely challenging frustrates him to tears and he gives up.  I think it is related to having a 7 yr old overachieving sister who likes to prove she is better than he is.  But seriously, he would rather watch YouTube videos of people playing Mario Bros because actually playing the game is too hard.

I think my girlfriend's 6 yr old son may be dislexic.  I was under the impression that that's too you to tell, but I was wondering if anyone could point out a "giveaway"

I seem to remember hearing about a link between creatine use and seizures.

I'd just like to be Abe Lincoln strong. 

Abe Lincoln didn't need creatine.

I take a multivitamin every other day or so.  Other than than, typical northern midwest diet.

I just said that because while I'm working out, I tend to feel a little nauseous sometimes - but I noticed that afterwards, I'm not so sore as to inhibit my daily activities.
