Lately, I have been thinking about quitting smoking for about the 9,878,987th time. I am still in the “debate” stage. I am equally divided as to whether or not I really want to quit. As much as I hate to smoke, I secretly like it.
I have tried and failed so many times that I now have the “why bother” mentality. I know, statistically, that it takes more than one attempt to quit. What if I am never successful? What if I just can’t beat it?
On some things, I have will power made of iron. When I want something, I make it happen. Other times, I have no will power and cave at the slightest temptation. I guess I need to figure out how to control my will power a bit better.
This time around, I am considering taking Chantix. I have tried it before, and for the most part, had good results-I think. I still smoked off and on while using it. I know that was a bad idea, but I could also not smoke and be Okay. I think I should have taken it for a month or two longer. The only problem with Chantix is it’s price. It is not covered by my insurance, and the cost was something like $160 a month when I was on it two years ago. I am not sure I am willing to spend that much money on something that may or may not work.
