    Don't know how many, if any of you here are smokers, but I have noticed that I am smoking WAY more since I have been taking Phentermine! And I mean I went from a half pack a day to nearly two packs! This wasn't a gradual increase either, it was an overnight thing. Seems like I remember this happening the last time I took it too.
    Anyone else experiencing this?

    I am a light smoker and I noticed that I really want a cigarette like all the time so your not the only one. Most of my side effects are minimal but I did notice the smoking. I had a cousin who was on phen and she said she experienced the same thing.

    Oh yeah, I had the increased smoking side effect too!

    The first time I took phentermine a few months ago I was smoking several cigarettes a day which was ALOT for me since I was only a social smoker. When I started buying a pack a week I knew something was up.

    I quit smoking completely June 16th and now I am back on phentermine and don't have any cravings.

    Default absolutely!!!

    Oh my god I have been feeling like I'm CRAZY or something the past week because of this!!!!!!!!! I quit smoking about 11 months ago with no problem (wasn't a heavy smoker to begin with)......BUT since taking Phen, have been craving and smoking like a chimney! It's kinda gross actually but I can't seem to control it Also, I feel an increased urge to drink, drink, drink!!! I crave wine and cigarettes or vodka and cigarettes. Gross right??? No, I'm not an alcoholic, so no lectures please! I think perhaps the "cravings" are my body's attempt to calm itself down (from the Phen) by any means possible. Has anyone had similar thoughts or experiences?

    It could be cause it is a stimulant and most stimulants increase behaviors that might be compulsive. That is the only thing I could think of.... i hope the urge to smoke subside for you guys...

    I remember taking phen a little over a year ago and lighting up cigs left and right. it was terrible, actually. I think I almost doubled what I smoked.

    I'm taking Chantix this time though, so I've not smoked in a couple weeks.

    Been off Phen for about 4 months (thru the holidays of course!) and have put on nearly 20 pounds! Guess what? Going back on! Plus the wife is a little touchy about her cooking, gets her feelings hurt if I don't eat, told her she was just gonna have to deal with it this time!

    I can't help it if she can eat anything she wants and still weigh 110! (I hate her!) J/K

    I definitely started smoking alot more, at first I really didn't mind but now that I am starting to REALLY work out (I wasn't working out at all after first 2-3 wks) it bothers me. I tried quitting but guess what? I end up eating...things like Chinese food and I end up smoking after I'm done stuffing my face anyhow!!! I figure smoke now quit after reaching goal and maybe things will be a bit easier..

    Just like any other stimulant phen has not only made me smoke more but also drink more alcohol to take off the edge. Anyone else?

    I never placed a connection to the two but I too increased how much I smoke after starting Phen. I quit smoking over 2 years ago before I got married. I would have a smoke when I drank which was almost never. Now I am at an easy 1/2-1 pack a day. I prety much started back around the same time I started taking Phen.

    Oh my Goodness, yes!

    It seems like when I take phentermine, all I wanna do is smoke! I'm glad that I'm not the only one. I love this forum, it eases my worries that I was the only one. I thought something was wrong with me! LOL Peace.

    Smile Smoking and Phentermine

    I dont know what it is but I have been back on phentermine for like 3 days and I think about smoking alot but I havent. I dont think its a good thing to smoke if you take phentermine because both are stimulants that raise your blood pressure and if you are overweight you already have an increased risk of heart attack or stroke and possibly have high blood pressure and high cholesterol because of being overweight... all of that is enough to scare me into not smoking even though the phentermine makes me want to really bad lol.

    I started smoking more too. I just blamed it on the fact that i was eating less and a cig was taking the place.

    This is only my third day, but my smoking has increased so much. I have even smoked back to back. I hope that part goes away. I've got a little cough I've smoked so much in the last three days!

    I went from about 1/2 pack a day to a pack and a few more thrown in =/ With the drinking, I drank once and got so smashed in such a short amount of time, that I've cut that out completly. With the small portions of food I now eat, my body just can't handle the onslaught of booze I guess =)

    I definitely have noticed an increase! I actually started wearing the nicotine patches today to stop this incessant desire to smoke! (still wanting one, even with the patch on, but i'm not going to give in!)

    I also smoked more. I started last Wed and after 5 days had to stop. I did smoke more I'm not noticing the craving as bad since I haven't had a pill in 3 days. I will start my pills up again after a day or 2 more. Waiting on the lump (in my throat) to go away in hopes that it don't return. If anyone has any advice for me please PLEASE feel free to give it. I so want this to be successful.

    I am suprised you all don't get this, phen is an amphetamine type of drug, it hypes you up. If you are a smoker you will want to smoke more, when you are on an amphetamine type of drug that's what will happen.

    Years and years ago when I was younger and foolish I tried cocaine which is also a amhetamine type of drug. At the time I was a light smoker and the few times I did cocaine I would light up one right after the other and would stay up all night. Amphetamines wheather illegal or not will hype you up, keep you from feeling hungry, make you talk more, feel jittery, and if you are a smoker, make you smoke more. I am lucky I don't smoke so I can only imagine how hard this habit will be to break, but if you are tying to loose weight for health reasons you should figure out how to stop smoking first. Good luck to you all

    Default Wow

    I was a casual cigar smoker but not so much since phen. Several a day now. It's a problem. Did not make the connection until I stumbled on to this thread. Going cold turkey in the morning.

    I had quit smoking for a year and I started up again when I began phen. Now I smoke anywhere from 2-8 a day. When I don't take the pills I don't even think to smoke... So at least I'll be able to quit again when I'm done with phen. I always go outside to smoke and when I come in I wash my hands and I never smoke near my little girl. I hate the habit enough, I don't want my little one exposed to that stuff. (any more than she already is...) I don't want her near it.

    Did you all notice that the original post was in 2007 and the last post before yesterday was in 2008. I'm not sure if those people are still part of this forum.

    I hope the increased smoking goes away pretty quickly.

    Yeah, I noticed that too curvygirl63, but I think stuff like this is relevant enough to resurrect every now and again.
