Robb's On the Pill
I went to the doctor today and did indeed go through
with the Zyban prescription.
For anyone who doesn't know, I have been kicking
around getting on this magical happy drug called Zyban, which is a
to help people quit smoking.
How it works (if you care) is that you fill the
prescription, and call a number, and they send you $150 worth of
aids. You get it in two days and then start taking the pills. You
are actually (this is the part I like) SUPPOSED to keep smoking for two
weeks while on the medication, cutting down the whole time.
Then you increase the dosage of pills each
You quit smoking in two weeks, and stay on the medication for another
weeks. Sounds relatively painless to me.
I will miss smoking, but decided that I care too
much about myself and my non-smoking friends to continue. See, I
that when you truly care about yourself and your loved ones, you are
to quit the filthy, disgusting, unhealthy habit of smoking. If your
is real, it is no sacrifice to kick the cancer sticks. Stop
myself in front of my friends, family, and loved ones?
I seriously question what kind of "human" would
not respect the people they "love" enough to do something like quit
$3.50 for each pocket-sized pack of suicide sticks. I mean,
I care about myself and those I love. I don't want to be a
bastard anymore, acting like I don't smoke when non-smoking friends are
around me, or even stop smoking around them because it's
Polite is quitting. What better display of your true feelings
to save your own life? It seems like a small price to pay.
I pity all those who aren't willing to try to change
one of the world's most disgusting and lethal habits for themselves or
those they care about. You sorry sacks of shit.
I just can't stress enough how great this Zyban
is. I took my first pill today and it cut my urges to smoke
right away. Normally I am a packadayplus smoker, and I had five
today. Five. It is so great.
If you care about someone who smokes, tell them
about it. This is truly a miracle drug. I can't believe I
not going on it, when quitting smoking is the best decision I've ever
I was a selfish, uncaring swine before. I
didn't care who my smoking hurt, including myself and those closest to
me. What kind of beast would do that?
Well, I am not going to be a beast any longer.
As of today, I am reforming. I am a new man. A man who actually
about himself and others. Not like when I smoked, and cared more about
where the money for my next carton was coming from. As any smoker
will tell you, you would gladly watch any person on earth die a
death than quit. No
matter how much you say you love someone, when you smoke they will
always be number 2. Sad, but true.
I am so glad that I made the decision to take this
painless, quick, healthy and 100% proven alternative. I feel
about myself, and realize even better how much my friends and loved
mean to me. Goodbye, and good luck!
All I'm really saying is that with an easy, cheap
alternative out there, why not take it? It's extremely selfish
stupid not to.
Is it worth giving up stinky little stix of death to save your
Oh, yeah, I think so. A life with cigarettes is not a life worth
And you won't live long if you smoke. My doctor told me about a
who he is treating for cancer. He smokes less than a pack a day,
is 23 years old, and has lung cancer.
He also told me of a patient who went from FOUR
PACKS A DAY to nothing in three weeks on Zyban. It's pretty much fool
and the drug itself has a 96% success rate.
And now to again push the point of giving up smoking
for others, I would like to send you all some statistics off the card
with my pills:

fuck up those nonsmokers around you. Not to mention the emotional
torment they go through while they watch you DIE.
I'd say that with such an easy, affordable solution
out there as Zyban, to not quit is the worst decision of your life.
I guess it's ok if you hate your friends' lives
as much as your own. I have decided that I no longer want to kill
myself and others.
I care too much.
