Hey everyone I hope everyone is having a decent day.
Well today is my quit day and so far so good, (kinda helps I have pneumonia) I started chantix five days ago and today seems to be going ok.... I missed my last quit date of 9/1... but this one I think I know I am going to give it my best shot to stop for good.lmao I got up at 9:30 and it is 11:56 and I am so proud of myself right now...
Has anyone else ever used chantix? Did it work? and after you quit how long do you have to take it?
I thought I read after a couple days the nicotine which is what your addicted to is out of your body ?
Chantix really doesn't give me many side effects, so far anyway it is only day 5..
Have a great day enjoy the weekend it is gorgeous here !!!!

  • Hi; and i'm currently taking "chantix".
    And yes it is working for me this time.. But i believe the biggest thing with quitting smoking is you have to wanna quit, and set your mind to it, When you feel the urge, dont let it take over.

    Right now i'm 10 days smoke free, and it is getting easier every day, except if you are feeling alot of stress. Which i felt yesterday, when i received the mail. {my ex trying more cr@p}. But i didnt slip, stuck to being smoke free.

    I did try chantix also 3 years ago, but didnt work that time.

    So hang in there, and set a date, and when you get up in the morn. You just have to set your mind to it.

    Best of luck to ya.
  • It has been 2 days smoke free, yesterday was good today has been kind of hard , but my pain is worse today I just keep telling myself I am not gonna lose this time. I don't need it... Thanks for all the support
