    Before I go make an appointment, will our benefits pay for Chantix?

    Call the toll free number on the back of your benefits card.

    I believe Chantix is a no-no for drivers.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    We had a driver use it to quit smoking. No idea if it was paid for or if anyone knew he was on it.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    No. And it's expensive. A few years back I paid $160 for a month's supply.

    If you just need something to put in your mouth....

    It can have the same problems that sleep apnea does, lack of restful sleep.

    govols019 You smell that?

    Good luck...I quit cold turkey after 23 years. 5 years later and I want one as bad right now as I did the day I quit.

    Wouldn't you think after 5 years the physiological (I used a big word) withdrawal would be over and now you are dealing with the psychological (I used another big word) withdrawal?

    Congrats on quitting BTW.

    govols019 You smell that?

    It's all in my head...I'm fine most of the time but if I see or hear something that reminds me of smoking I still have the craving.

    I never realized how bad the smell was until after I quit. Damn, they do stink.

    and then it is all you smell for an hour after delivering to an apartment that is all closed up, with 2 or 3 smokers in it.

    I don't have Teamcare --never did. We had a Blue Cross/Blue Shield policy and yes they did cover Viagra-- you were only allowed 4 pills a month. I tried it out of curiosity--gave me the worst headache I've ever had and a "D" you could pound nails with.
