I just took my first tablet of chantix this morning. Almost 4 hours ago. I have read so many horrible things online. I don't want the bad side effects other people have had. I had a glass of milk, 2 bottles of water, 1 banana and a bowl of fresh fruit. I did smoke 3 cigarettes. I am 40 years old and I started smoking at age 24. I don't want to wake up in my truck in some strange place like some stories I have read. I do take 1 2mg xanax at night.
