Hi everyone.  I'm new on this board, but not new to trying to quit.  I can't tell you how many times I've tried to quit, but I feel that it's finally time for me to be done with smoking.  I've been a closet smoker (with most people) since the day I first tried a cigarette--over forty years, if you can believe it.  My wife only found out I smoked four years ago. 


I've never been a heavy smoker, but I've been chewing nicotine gum for years fairly heavily to get me through the times when I couldn't have a cigarette, so I'm definitely physically and psychologically addicted.  I was at my doctor for my annual physical last week, and got a prescription for Wellbutrin, which I started last Monday.  Because of a health scare, I quit smoking earlier than I had planned--last Wednesday.  I've done pretty well, except for some insomnia, but this morning I woke up seriously wanting a cigarette.  Oh, for the time being I'm also using a nicotine patch.


I'm glad to be here for this, my final quit journey.
