That's great news, Mandy!
Glad you and bean are okay, Stash.
Nothing wrong with medication in trying to quit smoking. Whatever it takes. It took me years to quit, with lots of practice runs. My last time, when it "took" I used Zyban and did a lot of mental preparation and read a book by Allan Carr that was tremendously helpful in learning how to distance myself from the emotional need for smokes (pm me if you want more info - I highly recommend his program). I still love smoking, but I don't need them anymore. It's nice to be free.
