      If you have ever tried to quit smoking, you know how difficult it is. I had smoked for about 10 years, and I quit when I got pregnant. After I had my son, I went back to smoking occasionally. I would have ea cigarette or two on the weekends, but I never smoked around my son. I continued this way for several years. Eventually, two cigarettes became three, the weekends began on Thursdays, and my smoking got to a point where I wanted to quit again. I still didn’t smoke “a lot”, 2 or 3 cigarettes in the evenings, and more on weekends, but I was turning 35 and decided now was the time.

      a try. I was a little turned off by the price, almost $60 for a box of 108 lozenges. But I figured that if the products helped me quit, I would save a lot of money not buying cigarettes, so it was worth it to me.

      I bought the product and read the directions. The lozenges must be taken a specific way to optimize success. The directions say to take 1 lozenge every 1 to 2 hours for the first 6 weeks. Well, I figured I would wait until I had the urge to smoke before taking a lozenge. So, that evening after dinner when I would normally go outside for a puff, I took a lozenge instead (you are not allowed to smoke at all while taking the lozenges). The first thing I noticed was the horrible, awful taste! It’s hard to even describe how awful these things taste, I almost gagged on it. Not to mention, the lozenges take 20-30 minutes to completely dissolve, that’s like torture! I couldn’t finish it, so I spit it into the garbage and figured I would try again later.

      I couldn’t bring myself to take another one until the next evening. After dinner, I put another lozenge in my mouth. This time I managed to suffer through the taste and dissolve the entire thing. I felt a buzz from the lozenge, and no, I didn’t want to smoke. So I figured if I could just tolerate the taste of the medication, maybe it would really help me.

      The problem was,

      every time I took a lozenge, I got a major buzz that I didn’t like. My heart rate seemed to increase, and I felt an uncomfortable sensation all over. Cigarettes never gave me that kind of feeling. The package said that I might experience a warm tingly sensation, but that’s not what this was. So I decided I couldn’t tolerate the taste or the side effects. A friend suggested sucking on a half of a lozenge instead of the whole thing. This technique worked a little better, but still…I just couldn’t get past the awful taste!

      So, in the end, I gave the box of lozenges to a friend who was trying to quit. Apparently he didn’t think the taste was all that bad. I figured

      it would be easier to quit smoking cold turkey than to have to put up with the horrible tasting lozenges. I think the side effects I experienced were because I didn’t even smoke that much to begin with. I think this product is designed for those who smoke a pack a day or more.

      So, I can’t recommend this product, although I can see how it would work for some people because you really don’t want a cigarette when you have a lozenge in your mouth. For me, I just couldn’t deal with the taste and the side effects, so it was a waste of money. Maybe if they come out with a better tasting product, I would try that. For now I will just try to quit on my own.
