new and need help

I just joiuned here after a commercial I saw last PM. I've been using Chantix for 3 weeks. It works great as far as the nicotine tobacco crave. However, the routine part sucks.

I've never been diagnosed with depression, but I believe I may have it (family history indicates it). After using Chantix I've had some nasty days (sorry for those around me especially my wife). However, I'm still proud I've been smoke free for one and a half weeks.

PS-Anyone ever tried Zyban? I did about two years ago, I wasn't committed then, but I do remember the medication made me feel positive not in the dumps as I feel now, it seemed to work too. I'm going to talk to my doc about a switch, I'm tired of the way I'm feeling. Hope its OK I posted here. Trying to learn to use the site.
