I wanted to start a thread for myself as a tracker of my journey to becoming smoke free. I have been a smoker for 14 years and do to enviroment and cost, and health have come to the realization that its time to stop. For everyone the journey is different because no two people are alike. We each have our own reasons for starting and stopping. We also have our own ways of stopping. I'm working through a smoke cessation program through my job. I have a over the phone counseling as well as working through my primary doctor. I started the drug Chantix lastnight. I did my research as well as discussing with my counselor and my doctor and we all agreed that it was the best thing for me to use. I want this thread to be a positive experience for myself as well as the people who may be struggling with quitting themselves. So please post your concerns, and your positive experiences. Thanks for taking the time to be a part of this monumental trial. Day 1 Chantix and all seems fine!
