For Smoking Cessation "I’ve taken Chantix for 3 weeks, starter pack. Shortly after starting, I noticed a rash developing all over my body. I didn’t put 2-2 together until tonight when I researched side effects. A rash is, I’ve read, not an uncommon side effect and could be dangerous to your health. I stopped taking Chantix tonight."

For Smoking Cessation "Started chantix 7 weeks ago. Smoked my last cigarette 2 weeks later. It’s been 5 weeks since I smoked and I’m done with it. I couldn’t have done it without chantix. Yes I have weird dreams sometimes but it’s a small price to pay. I feel great!! I couldn’t have done it cold turkey."

For Smoking Cessation "This worked great for 6 weeks. My doctor only gave me one pack which is a month and I managed to quit for 6 weeks picking my quit date just days after I started taking chantix. Can only imagine if I had a script for 12 weeks as the medicine suggests I probably would have truely quit but went back to smoking"

For Smoking Cessation "I could never have gone a day/week without this drug. I have smoked 40 years, pack+ /day. I am 3 months cigarette free. No depression ... only jubilation! Maybe I will break chains of 40+ years? Please let it be so."

For Smoking Cessation "I am a 65 year old woman. 7 years ago I made the decision to quit smoking. It wasn't because I wanted to it was, I felt, because I had to. I had fallen asleep a couple of times with a cigarette in my hand. Also the cost of cigarettes was more than I could really afford. My brother had used Chantix and quit so I made the same decision. I followed the guidelines and had to do two rounds of Chantix. At that point I considered myself free of cigarettes. To this day I have not picked up one cigarette nor have I had a desire. I went from a pack to a pack and a half a day smoking to zero. I highly recommend Chantix to anyone wanting to quit smoking. It was the best thing I ever did."

For Smoking Cessation "I used chantix for 3 months. I never was depressed in my life before then. I had successful career, wife, kids, rich by some standards, but... I am still so depressed weeks, maybe months, since I quit chantix. My depression is so deep, I cannot think. Think really hard before you try this."

For Smoking Cessation "Chantix made me so depressed life didn't seem worth it, either doctors or Chantix doesn't really address depression. I spent weeks on the Psyc ward of our local hospital. FYI, the Chantix site won't even let me post on their site because it's negative - that should give the public something to think about. Yet it seems to be a known side effect."

For Smoking Cessation "Um to say that I'll never try this again is an understatement. After the second week of treatment I was in the worst headspace where if everyone in the world died I would be fine with that. Literally anyone who crossed my path. Still smoking though."

For Smoking Cessation "I was a bit apprehensive to take this already being on meds for depression and anxiety but I had no issues. By day 3 I was already smoking less. By week 2 I was only smoking 1 a day and it tasted so bad. I am now coming to the end of my first month and haven't had a cigarette in 2 weeks. I am really happy that this is working because before I actually enjoyed smoking. I did find that if I ate with it I got sick though so I had to take on an empty stomach. Dreams were not crazy. Just remembered."

For Smoking Cessation "I smoked for 32 years and truly had no desire to quit but then a health issue came up and it forced my hand. I was terrified of quitting because I actually enjoyed smoking and it was the only time I walked away from work. A friend mentioned Chantix so I thought I would give it a try. Everything I read said to pick a "quit" date but I was not ready for that yet. I started taking Chantix on April 26, 2017. I did have some very vibrant dreams but really no other side effects. On May 20th I was finally able to pick my quit date and it was on May 27th, memorial day weekend. I found myself waiting to crave a cigarette and it never came. There were times I wanted to go outside to smoke only because of the "habit" factor. I just redirected my time and then before I knew it a month had went by. It has now been 1 year and almost 3 months since I quit smoking. In a lot of ways the medical condition that made me quit smoking........saved me..."

For Smoking Cessation "I smoked for 46 years and was a 2 1/2 pack a day smoker. I have tried to quit smoking so many times. I've tried everything imaginable to quit. All of the marketed products, home remedies, even old wives' tales. I started taking Chantix and using the gradual method, my last cigarette was March 25, 2018. I don't even want them anymore. Thank you Chantix, I absolutely love being a non-smoker."

For Smoking Cessation "Today I just picked up my first scrip.t I’ve been smoking since I was 14 and I’m now 66 have been diagnosed with emphysema stage 3. I can’t reverse the emphysema but maybe I can slow it down. Docs have been screaming at me for years to stop, but I had little faith in this being able to work after having terrible experiences with other meds to stop smoking. I’m going to check back in every day to let you now how it’s going. It’s sad when you realize you spent thousands & thousands of dollars just to cut your life short ."

For Smoking Cessation "30 year smoker plus I love coffee...can't be with out either one. I started to take chantix I am on the 3rd week 2 twice a day morning and evening. I really hope this works for me, yes I am still smoking. For now I feel okay no side effects yet my sleeping pattern is not so good. I'm going through menopause so on the weekends I have to take a nap as I get very sleepy and need to catch up on my sleep. I do have health issues I was diagnosed with Osteoporosis on the scale 3.5 bone density due to menopause and smoking. I'm the only one in my family and my husbands family that smokes."
