I am on my 3rd day of week 4 on Chantix and have felt very little change. I felt that I wasn't enjoying the cigarettes in the second week but now I'm back to enjoying them. : ( Maybe I'm not ready? I have read where this isn't a miracle pill and I guess I expected it to be. I wanted it to just make me sick and not want one but that hasn't happened. I have been lucky in that I have had very few side effects. They don't seem to made me nauseous as long as I eat something and I have had some vivid dreams but nothing bad.
I have just returned from vacation and realized one of the many reasons why I need to quit......you can't smoke anywhere!! It's such a monkey on my back. I found myself constantly looking for places to hide to have a smoke. Why didn't the Chantix even help with those cravings?
I have not come to the point where I am ready to stop taking the Chantix but wonder if I should stop taking it if I'm still smoking just the same. Should I wait until my head is a little more into it? I know I want to quit. I want to be free of this demon and be a healthier me. I want to have the money that I spend on cigarettes, I will also save on insurance. I pay more because I'm a smoker. All signs point to QUIT but it is just so hard.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!!
