Hi K and Super:

Well, keep in mind the ol' Dr. Bob quip: Your Mileage May Vary. Otherwise known on this Board as "YMMV." I can imagine people who are more "wired" than I am, might indeed be pushed into an anxiety reaction, and perhaps turn to food to numb that effect.
Since I am at the other end of Bipolar II, & went through a major depressive episode this spring (my man took a hike), my pdoc wisely prescribed Wellbutrin, which brought me up and out of it.
Carol, I did a search on "smoking" (if you've never done it, always look at the bottom of any screen on Babble, and type it in the little box that says "search"), and got a lot more info on Wellbutrin, and its twin Zyban. This was the name of the smoking cessation drug I couldn't remember the name of yesterday. You may find out more than you ever wanted to know about Wellbutrin by doing a couple of searches...
I still maintain, and this theory may hold absolutely no water, scientifically speaking, that Wellbutrin helps with compulsions, and with obsessive activities like smoking and over-eating and ruminating...

Nice to share experiences with you,
Wendy
