Depression and quitting smoking

I want to quit smoking and I suffer from Interferon induced depression. I smoke continously although I feel seek after each cigarette. Would it be a good idea to try Allen Carrs clinic?
I know that depression and smoking are a vicious circle and I want to break the circle somewhere.
Did anyone try this method of quitting while depressed?
Thank you
Dheana

I don't know about that particular method, but if your depression has an organic basis, stopping smoking will not make it worse.  The depression that comes from stop smoking is psychological...smoking keep an underlying depression suppressed and it comes out when you stop, and that is good, because you can resolve a depression by getting your life moving in the right direction..If you want some help with that online, go to www.masteringstress.com.
