I just started taking champix today. I was wondering when to set my actual quit date and when people started noticing side effects etc?
Champix-quit smoking date

I quit on my 13th day because I was ready. The only side effects I had were nausea if I did not take it with a meal, and vivid dreams. Congratulations on your decision to quit, and welcome to the board!

I quit about beginning of the 5th week....day 3 is when I felt some of the upset stomach, they were minor and quite managable.....I had only one vivid dream...no other side effects....
We're all different look at the time frame between me and Nancy....I did not set a date...I quit on the 4th day the cigaretts started tasting quite stale which was in the 4th week of taking Chantix.....Bassman

Smoking can rot us from the inside. If we let it. Don't let that happen to you. Smoking is not an option.

Things began to get better when I realized I would remain quit even if things never got any better.

Being successful doesn't mean that you'll never GET to smoke again. It means that you'll never HAVE to smoke again.

i did chantix also. as you can see everybodies quit date is different. mine was 10 or 11 days after starting chantix. cigarettes started tasting not bad but not good. like bassman said, quite stale.
i quit 2 days before my quit date. it just felt right. welcome to the board and congrats on your decision to quit. come here often. Read-read-read. post-post-post. you will not find a better
support group than what you have found here. these people are amazing and huge support. previous 40 year smoker (heavy). 3 months quit. YOU CAN DO THIS!! Trust me, if I can I know
you can. chantix just takes the edge off your withdrawal and cravings. but it helped me a lot. no side effects to speak. i feel lucky in that regard. anyway STAY STRONG!! YOU CAN DO THIS!!!

Wow, you people are amazing. I really appreciate everyone taking the time to respond. I am currently on day 7 no smoking ( just started 3rd week of champix). It got to the point where if I took a puff of a cigarette I felt like I might throw up. Currently battling fatigue, nausea, acid reflux... also a bit snappy and short tempered, insane dreams, and I know tmi but constipation.I am trying to make it through. I am hopeing it gets a bit better after a couple more weeks. Last Monday I was so tired I could not even get out of bed. I think the fatigue might be due to the crazy dreams and not sleeping soundly. Anyway, I am just rambling, but thanks again.

I know that feeling...
Don't look back... Gods sakes don't need too.
Just keep going forward. AND
Just as important..... You are the driver of this... YES you.
The champix is your tool.

Moon, I quit taking Chantix 4 days after I stopped smoking because it made me very nauseous. The symptoms you cite are well within the range of "normal" for people who stop smoking. We trained our bodies to deal with constant small doses of poison hour after hour, day after day, month after month, year after year, etc. and when we stop, it is no surprise that your poor body's systems will get a little off balance. The good news is that although it may take a while, all of your symptoms will slowly disappear and you will marvel at the freedom from that vile habit. Congrats on your decision and YOU'VE GOT THIS!!
