Hello everyone my name is Stephanie and I am starting chantix. Well to be completely honest today is my fourth day of chantix. I have tried to quit several times and the one time I did manage to stay quit it was on Chantix for 6 months. Then I relapsed. I could give a whole bunch of excuses, but bottom line I let the addiction beat me. Now I don't have a choice. I am 37 and just had a total hysterectomy with removal of ovaries and to get on the hrt's I have to quit smoking. So I asked my doctor for a prescription for chantix and here I am. I have been taking it for 4 days still smoking what I usually smoke, but instead of enjoying them I feel like I have an ashtray for a mouth. Let me tell you that is a gross taste. My doctor and I agree that we will do two rounds of chantix. With me tapering on and then tapering off the same way. We also set my quit date for September 1st, but I don't think I will last that long before I finally say enough this is gross. She did tell me of I felt I could quit sooner then go for it, but the quit date is the final day for smoking. So fingers crossed that I quit before then.
Oh and I will also post in the main board to say hi.
