... hoping to get some input from this forum on what to expect, the best time to take it, etc. All comments are welcome!
I would definitely recommend that you get the second & third months of your Chantix if you feel it is working ok in the first couple of weeks. I made the mistake of only getting the first starter pack (1 month). It worked so well I thought I had it beat. As soon as I stopped taking it, I immediately wanted to smoke again, but didn't have any more pills. Best time to take, like the packs indicate is one in the morning, and one at night. Be sure to start with the 50mg pills first. Also, DO NOT take this on an empty stomach. I did this a couple of times and had bad stomach cramps. Some people complain of various different issues taking this, but I haven't had anything bad happen to me. Vivid dreams, but no nightmares, so it's ok for me. I'm currently on it again. Little tougher this time. Best time to do this is the first time.
I agree with raymo,make sure you have enough pills to get you through and take them everyday!!
Have'nt got much else to say only i wanted to say well done to you for wanting to quit and i wish you the best of luck with it!!
I wish i had some will power to decide to quit,hopefully sometime in the future,but i admire anyone that makes the decision to quit,its not an easy one,but alot can make it!!
Best of luck to you!!
Hay everyone..this is my update, my quit date was on the 11th of august, but damn it! Had a couple of cigaretes. Today is the 12th, and Ive had 3 cigeretes! I'm praying that to morrow im not gonna have any. Please continue to keep me in your prayers... Today I met a woman and she was smoking on one of those electric ones. She said it cost her 50 bucks. She then told me that she was just diagnosed with liver cancer and this was her way of trying to quit... omg but I hugged her and told her that she was in my prayers and hang in there for both of us, because we are gonna quit. This has made my determination even stronger to give up these cancer sticks!! I asked her if she thought it was from smoking, seeing she was only 40 years old.
She then said that that's what the doctors are telling her, but I can see that she really wasn't concerned about that but just concerned about healing her body. I'm so glad I had this wonderful opportunity to meet her! I truly feel like I was meant to meet this woman, just for having a stronger will power to quit.
