    Chantix turned me into a raving lunatic. Like seriously crazy. Everyone noticed a huge shift in my personality.

    I ended up quitting the chantix after a couple of weeks and going cold turkey, which lasted about 7 months before I ended up going back on them.

    But once I got off the chantix, my personality got back to normal in a couple of days.

    Since I'm back on them, I'm thinking about quitting again, but I'll go cold turkey next time.

    Doesn't matter what tax money was used. Per your senario, it would be at no cost to the person getting the benefit and others would be funding it for him.

    It would not be as "no cost" to the person seeking the service; rather it would be a cost that they had already paid for over the long term. It would be pre-paid treatment.

    Sorry if i worded this all poorly.. I was only 1 cup of coffee into my day when I made the poll

    Although I did not word my poll accurately enough so that you felt that this was included, what if this and other options that were deemed effective (patches, gum, chantix, acupuncture, hypnosis -any and all methods that were found to be effective) were made available as a result of a tax on cigs?
    I own my body, not the state. I do not need the state telling me what I can or cannot do with my body be it with taxes or anything else. So I would be against it.

    I decided I needed to quit smoking because of my diabetes. It was my decision and the state needs to stop taxing the piss out of everything they deem "bad" for me. I am an adult, they need to recognize that.

    The question is for those who smoke (or have other tobacco/nicotine addictions).

    If there was an effective treatment option for your addiction readily available, and at no cost funded from a tax on tobacco products would you participate, and do you think you could kick the habit with readily available professional help/treatment?




    Yes, while the country is being bankrupted, the most importat thing is for my tax dollars to pay for you to stop smoking.

    I would indeed take advantage, but not sure it would work as I do really enjoy a good smoke!

    So if it was a freeby, you wouldn't mind wasting the money but you are not willing to risk it if you had to use your own money. Exactly why it shoud not be government funded.

    Do you have kids? If not, how do you feel about paying school taxes for other people's children?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.
