My boyfriend needs to quit smoking. He wants to, but smokes a lot (two packs a day), and has been smoking for about 16 years. He has tried many times, and wants to quit, but it is very difficult. People have suggested Chantix (sp?), but I really worry about the mental/mood related side effects as he has bipolar and I just...don't feel comfortable about mixing that drug and the potential side effects with what he's already dealing with. He agreed, when we spoke about this. I read another thread about a possible homeopathic option, and acupuncture. Could these help? What other options are out there? I worry about this a lot as I helped take care of my grandmother when she died of lung cancer so I know very well what is likely to happen if he doesn't quit...or what could still happen even if he is able to quit. He said he has some pain when be breathes sometimes, can't take deep breaths in, etc...help?We're not that old...he's only 28.
