I am nervous about quitting. I have smoked for 30 years!
I take an anti depressant but my Doctor says give Chantix a shot!
I have the box and just keep staring at it. I plan to start Chantix Monday.

What should I set my quit date to be if I start Taking it Monday?

Please pray for me guys! I really want to stop feeling like crap from smoking so much.
I can tell cigs have finally worn me down. I feel like heck when I smoke.

I am ready.

Welcome dotchess, please introduce yourself to the main board. These sub forums don't get a lot of views and you'll get a lot more feedback there :) As far as your question, you pick the date I believe between day five and thirty five if I remember correctly. Each person is different so you'll probably hear a bunch of different quit dates but you will notice a pretty good reduction in wanting a cigarette after taking the chantix :)

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

Welcome to the board!  I agree you should introduce yourself on the Main Board where more people will "see" you.  I quit on the 13th day after I started Chantix.  I did not set a quit date when I started taking it, I just waited until I felt ready.  Congratulations on your decision to quit!

Hi dotchess, I too am very new to the quit. I'm sure we will get much needed support here. My Uncle Jack always said "you'll get used to hanging if you do it long enough".Lol

Best Wishes to you!

Hi Dotchess,


Welcome.  I think many of us were afraid when we first were going to quit. I also did not set a quit date and let the date pick me.  Don't remember exactly but pretty sure it was around the 21st day.  Good luck!  You can do it!

Welcome Dotchess. I was kind of like you in that I had the Chantix for a while before I decided to jump. I didn't set a quit date when I started the Chantix, I just thought I'd know when I was ready to quit. The Chantix made me nauseous, so after 7 days I decided to stop smoking and on the 11th day I stopped taking Chantix. The real secret is your true desire to quit smoking. That's what will get you in the race and keep you going. The Chantix certainly did help me lose the desire to smoke, but it's really up to us to do the rest. You can do it!! Fight for it!!
