started chantix 17 or 18 days ago. quit smoking 5 days ago.  severe cravings are few compared to ct. planning on the full 3 months treatment. curious as to going off chantix will cravings still be few? what can i expect? i have had no strange dreams or nausea. feel lucky for that.

Congratulations on your quit!!


I took Chantix as prescribed, cut down to one pill in the last two weeks...no problems.  I did experience an emotional roller coaster, but most quitters describe that around 3 months, not just those who used Chantix.

I stopped Chantix midway through the third month, after having cut down to one pill a day two week prior.  I was quite apprehensive to stop altogether, but found that I had very little change in my cravings. The transition went very smoothly and I was relieved to finally do it all on my own. That was over four years ago, and I've never looked back, except in gratitude  :smile: .
