Motivated with a solitary wave type of solution to the nonlinear Schrodinger (NLS) equation, in this work we shall seek a travelling wave solution to the dissipative NLS equation by use of the hyperbolic tangent method. It is observed that the dissipative NLS equation still assumes a solitary wave type of solution with decaying amplitude in the time parameter.
