... admit, the side effects worry me. I live alone with very few friends if any and the thought of me going a bit "nuts" all by myself is a bit scary to say the least. I guess I'm really looking for a friend to help me through this and hopefully one day I can return the favor. Thanks
I refused to take it because of the risk of depression, since I already suffer from it. I took wellbutrin. I don't know if it really helped me or if I just decided one day I'd enough of wasting money, coughing and burning my clothes. I smoked the last cigarette said this is it no more, and haven't had one since. I even sit outside with my neighbor while she is smoking. I stopped the wellbutrin 6 mos ago. The human mind is very strong, if you make up your mind you'll do it, you can do it. I smoked for 50 yrs and quite 2 days before last Christmas.
Well I finally decided to try Chantix with the use of an e-cigarette for 6 weeks only and so very happy that I did. Never got any side affects and after 6 weeks of using Chantix, I quit smoking and no need for the e-cigarette either.
Now I was a heavy smoker for over 50 years and I really enjoyed it for about 40 years until I started to feel the effects a few years ago. I had tried to stop but no way could I do it. In my opinion, I think Chantix truly saved my life as it is over 4 months without smoking and I feel great.
Good luck all
