nicotine addiction affecting personality

Posted by katie on October 20, 1999, at 11:30:15

I have been smoking too long to mention without causing myself embarassment on this board. My problem is this---I can get the resolve needed to start to quit, but I never follow thru on it. It's so damn aggrevating. I take Wellbutrin, but not enough to be a smoking deterent. If I take too much (wellbutrin) I become a little manic.

Now... the personality thing...for some reason when I do "quit" I become somewhat of a "wet blanket". It's like I lose part of my personality when I quit. I become lethargic and uncommunicative and basically relent to other's demands even when I disagree. I don't ever reach the point of "rocking the boat", I barely tap it. But when I start back smoking I become "myself" again.

I know the damn things are ruining my quality of life and will most likely "do me in", but a just can't disassociate myself from cigarettes.

Any feedback would be welcome.

thx in advance, katie
