Inspired by some works on quantization of dissipative systems, in particular the ones treating the damped harmonic oscillator and by a paper due to Lukierski, we consider the dissipative system of a charge interacting with its own radiation, which is the origin of radiation damping. Using the indirect Lagrangian representation we obtained a Lagrangian formalism with a Chern-Simons-like term. A Hamiltonian analysis is also done in commutative and non-commutative scenarios, which leads to the quantization of the system.
