Well done, Liv!  And don't worry about taking Chantix...you are not smoking and that is all that counts!   I took Chantix for the full 3 months, and then still had a refill in case I thought I needed it.  You are doing great!

Thank you. I sure appreciate the tips on Chantex..to stay on it. I was already wondering,

do I quit now? I smoked more years than I will ever not smoke so..your answer that you

took it for the full three months helped me..I still have times I want to smoke; some hard

some just thoughts..it is ok..I got through with help..Praying everyone stays smoke free

and me too! Blessings to all..

You are doing great, Liv!  I just noticed you posted this in the Chantix forum instead of in Celebrations on the Main Board.  You would have gotten many more responses, there.

Liv, well done!

 

I started Champix more or less at the same time as you.

 

One month is awesome! That´s  one month smoke-free and nicotine-free. Great progress for your lungs, your throat, your skin, your hair, nails and over-all well being.

 

Keep it up! Now you know you definitely CAN do it.... you have already done it for ONE MONTH!

 

You´ve already quit. You are a non-smoker now. The only thing you have to protect yourself from is.. do not become a smoker again.

 

I quit more or less at the same time as you, and I stopped taking Champix last week (the nausea) but still keep the pills in my handbag just in case if I need a boost of non-smokingness. It reassures me and makes me stronger and more deternined to pulll this through.

 

You are strong and you are determined abd you´ll pull this trought. Keep it  up!!! ;-)

 

:-)

Congratulations - one month seems a great feat let alone a year 😄 I have given up smoking a week today using a vape pen - I cannot think of anything else every minute of every day and my GP prescribed me chantix but the side effects have somewhat terrified me - could anyone share their experience of this with me please to put my mind at rest and take the risk and not think about smoking?

G'day Oneill
Sorry one of the rules of the board is that we don't discuss vaping.
I've giving up smoking using champix. I don't know I suffered with side effects from the champix.
I took the champix for 3 weeks missing many "quit days" till I finally drowned all the cigs in my house and just did it.
Yes I got withdrawals but I didn't find them that bad as I used the forum to read as much as I could every day. Yes the first cig of the day slid away, the I need " deserve" a work break disappeared. Me and the 40 year addiction changed. The champix gave me the time to change my thinking. I'm 7 months now, yes I'm still amazed. I'm not giving my quit away.... No Way... No How!
I want to see every one enjoy being a non smoker! It just gets better! So much better!
Go to the main page and read the "pinned" new be sections"

apologies!! I had to try something as could only see a doctor in a week's time and struggling to breathe, in or out, which was rather frightening and sadly I had to see my father live wit COPD and smoked till the end - puff of a fag and alternating with his oxygen mask so I thought this could be easy just keep those thoughts for motivation - aaargh yeah right. I have read many of the posts and think the side effects can't be anything worse than this feeling and constant thoughts about smoking and "pining" for a lost loved one. I have been smoking for 26 years and heavy smoker - I didn't think it would be this difficult but reading posts of pride, determination and difficulties the and overcoming this addiction can be done.

ONeill, the only side effect I had was the morning nausea.

The vivid dreams, copious amounts of water which lead to a non stop search for the loo, ulcerated mouth, sudden acne attack (which doesn´t last thanks god), headaches, tiredness and a few more are in my experience side effects of quitting, not side effects of the pill. And don´t last.

Still these pills are strong stuff so their use should be monitored by a doctor.

You may benefit from Reading Allen Carr´s "Easy way to quit smoking", and a post here called "My cigarette my friend" so that you understand where that "pining" comes from and take it for what it is...

Give yourself a chance! :-)
