Today is day # 8 on Chantix which means its my quit date. Anyone else used Chantix? Good? Bad? or any other advice??
My wife was a very heavy smoker for 25 years, she took Chantix at the end of last year and hasn't smoked since. It seemed to be very easy for her to do too, unlike the patch where it was always a roller coaster ride.Today is day # 8 on Chantix which means its my quit date. Anyone else used Chantix? Good? Bad? or any other advice??
I quit cold turkey 7 yrs ago, I still every once and a while reach for the pocket out of habit. I never fell off the wagon.I just quit cold turkey. 22 years of smoking and 5.5 months without one. Still get the urge every now and then for one, but have not fallen off the wagon.
Been 4 years without one...you really have to want to do it...otherwise it won't work.Today is day # 8 on Chantix which means its my quit date. Anyone else used Chantix? Good? Bad? or any other advice??
I agree. I took it in December, had my last cigarette on Christmas Eve (after smoking over 35 years). It definately wasn't the easiest thing I've ever done. I still miss it at times, but I will not smoke again because I don't want to have to go through all the shit of trying to quit again. Saving lots of money too! The cravings do subside after a while though. Good luck to you.It does take the edge off of the withdrawls.You still have the mental and physical aspect's to deal with.All in all worked a helluva lot better than the patch or gum did.
Bottom line you still have to want to quit or it won't work.Good luck.
Thats the best advice/truth given yet.Biggest mistake I made was coming home from a phucked up day and finding a reason to have "just one"...once you have that first one again after quitting...you'll find a million ways to justify having just one more!
I've quit this way many times....made it a few months some times and even went FIVE YEARS one time......coincidently I smoked my last one at nine last night......Have a bad summer cold right now so I figured it's a good time to quit again.......So far so good today, feel like shit so I haven't wanted one.....the shit will start next week when I feel better though........Wish me luck....trying for a permanent quit this time........Hell, I'd be happy with another 5 year smoke free run even..........I just quit cold turkey. 22 years of smoking and 5.5 months without one. Still get the urge every now and then for one, but have not fallen off the wagon.
