Congrats on choosing to quit smoking. You made a good choice. Make sure you post on the main board as well a lot more traffic there than this board.
I to am taking Chantix, actually for me it's my third go around on Chantix and the previous 2 times it made me extremely irritable and oh so nauseous. This time I take it with a glass of breakfast essential, 2 pieces of toast, and eggs. After I eat that I take my chantix with a large glass of water. This time I have not experienced any nausea. I on day 10 of chantix and currently 53 hours and 18 minutes smoke free.
The vape thing. I have tried the vape thing in the past and although it does help cut you down it is damn near impossible to quit on it. I actually own one. My husband said to me that if it gets to bad to use it, but I threw that idea out the window. The reason why is because we have to break the emotional and mental addiction to cigarettes and nicotine as well as the physical addiction.
Your thoughts process. It can't be hopefully this will be my final quit. It has to be this will be my final quit. Hopefully leaves room for doubt, room for relapse. Quitting smoking isn't easy, but that's because we are relearning how to do life with out poison. Chantix isn't a miracle pill. It doesn't take the urges and the craves away completely, but it does make it more bearable. Also you are only at the 1mg per day. So your not at the full dose yet, it does make a huge difference. The Chantix only helps you still have to do the work.
Best of luck to you and I am here rooting for you. If you haven't yet go read the newbie package on the main board. There are a lot of great articles and videos. A lot of good information. Rear, read, and educate yourself on what your experiencing and what's to come quiting smoking isn't a one fits all type of glove so the information is just a guideline.
