    I also have been using Chantix and patches I can make it 3 days before my stomach gets sick bad and the patches make my arms weak. So the longest I can stay cig. free is 3 days I need more help please. I have also bought more than my fair share of e-cigs also and they don't work they are messy and need charging all the time and do have a tendency to burn up so you must be sure not to over charge them keep an eye on them please.

    Do you have a spiritual or faith-base? After about 20 years and countless attempts to stop - the longest, using the patch, for about 7 months - I finally did what I should have done first: I prayed. I've been smoke-free for 5 years and, as of August 1, 8 months. It can be done! Best wishes for your success -
