I am in Canada and we call it Champix here.  today is day4 - so far no side effects. I still have the urge to smoke - however when i light one up - i don't finish it - it gives me nothing. My quit date is June 8th.

Hi dinny....congrats on getting your quit going....I quit with the help of Chantix......
You may want to go to the main board and intro yourself as this is a sub forum from the main and you will get more responses....

It got me the same way, not being able to finish it......When you get to the point where you put that last half one out, that is where you say you are done.....no more....you are now a nonsmoker.....QSMB will help and support you.....post often letting us know how you are doing as there is a huge smorgasbord of quitters here that are supporting......Bassman

I think I can - I know I can - I did
You're a post away to stay smoke free today.....
Quitting may not always easy, but it's always right...stay quit......
I gave myself the gift of quitting, I will not take that gift away from myself.......
My time of suffering is over, its the addictions time to suffer.......

Hi dinny! Congratulations on making the decision to quit. I began taking Chantix 5/1/16 and I stopped smoking on 5/5/16. I really wanted to quit and the Chantix made it much more tolerable. I only took half of the recommended dose daily, then cut down to one fourth dosage and completely stopped taking it 5 days ago. I didn't have any bad side effects with the Chantix and have had no problems since I stopped taking it.

You've set your quit date...stick to it. Make no excuses. I'm only 4 weeks into my quit, but I can tell you that it does get easier day by day. Stay strong!

So i have finally quit - it took me slightly more than 8 days - 12 days to be true to the fact. Day 8 to Day 12 i had to have a puff every 6 to 8 hours - I would light the cigi, take two puffs and crush it out. Been three days since I have not had the urge and now i am on Day 15 of Chantix - I am loving the dreams - sorry they are very x-rated otherwise I would share :wink:

Hi Dinny! I took chantix for 6 weeks, twice a day. No strange effects exception being the nausea if I did not take it with food.

A piece of bread was enough to stop that too. I just stopped it one day at 6 weeks. Had a few days of wanting to smoke,

but it was not in the physical..just the thoughts driving me nuts..anyways..today is 2 moths and 3 weeks and If feel the victory today for the first time! 

YOU CAN DO THIS JUST DO NOT PICK IT UP AT ALL..
