my GF and i have taken our first steps in trying to quit. We started taking Chantix about 2 days ago and it seems to be working. Anyone whos smoked for years can tell you it's really hard to quit, the withdrawls alone will keep you smoking. Chantix is supposed to stop all of that and block the nicotine receptors ion your brain. Bad part is I actually like to smoke, I cant explain why I just do. But I notice already i dont have any major cravings.....before it was like a strong urge that kept nagging and now it's not so bad, so hopefully the cravings go away and we'll quit. We could put the money to better use anyway and honestly i'm getting tired of standing outside to smoke in the cold, heat, rain etc. that and I really want to be around to see my 6 yr old daughter grow up.
