G-mann,

Many people without depression try several times before being able to successfully quit cigarettes. Therefore, what your therapist says makes absolutely not sense whatsoever.

As an FYI, the only drugs approved for smoking cessation programs are Chantix and Wellbutrin XL. And they should only be used in my opinion, when everything else has been tried and the benefits clearly outweigh the risks.

But it sounds like your body doesn't like meds very much and personally, I would take that as an indication to avoid them.

What have you tried so far to quit smoking?
