Well it is July ( almost August). I am still not smoking but I am also still not right. I am very quick to get angry. And confused. I have an extremely stressful job and I have had a couple of breakdowns thankfully not at work but at home. I have been diagnosed now as being bipolar which doctors say was triggered by Chantix, gets wore with extreme stress and will get worse with not being treated (age). Apparently, I was lucky enough to barrel through this perfect storm lol.

I take medication now to control this mess and go to the therapist and psychiatrist regularly - heck I have been to the doctors more this year than I have been in my entire life. I am lucky enough to have very good friends to try to help me through this and a husband who I am not sure about but am chalking up my indecisiveness to my confusion. But my husband 1. Still smokes, 2. Smokes in house and car even though I've told him it bothers me and 3. Has taken my credit cards and told me he would give them back if I asked for them. Well I asked and he won't give them back.

But, I am not smoking. I am taking my medicine. I'm going to my doctors. I still have a good job. I have my family and friends. It's not perfect, but I am surviving the monster called Chantix. This s*** is pure evil...

congrats on still being quit!


sounds like you've had a wild ride, indeed.  i too am still feeling some effects/affects after my long term run with chantix even though i've been off of it for over a month now.


but the question that interests me is would you have been able to quit if you hadn't taken the chantix?  you are still around a smoker and yet you still refrain, i think that is pretty powerful stuff, that.  i would love to know what you thought about chantix in helping your quit, or did it?


keep rawkin' your quit for while all the other stuff is going on that is a powerful thing to maintiain.


love you, mean it,

Methadone and a handful of shrink medications [the should NEVER try this on HUMANS ]

cops were called to make sure I was


the entire house /apt was kicked to hell [ they took the pills I had stashed ] fearing I might try something dumb

This s*** was pure evil for me as well.  I did quit smoking, however, I do not believe it was worth what I went through.  I am still not totally back to myself but have gotten a little better.  It sounds like it really messed with you!  Hope you are doing better now that a little more time has passed.


Take care!

Chantix may bring about changes in your contemplations or conduct. Quit utilizing this drug and call your specialist without a moment's delay on the off chance that you have: any state of mind or conduct changes, perplexity, uneasiness, fits of anxiety, fantasies, amazing trepidation, or in the event that you feel rash, fomented, forceful, eager, unfriendly, discouraged, hyperactive (rationally or physically), or have musings about suicide or harming yourself.
