I smoked for 25 years and really didn't want to quit but decided to try one more time due to health concerns. I quit in July 2009 and haven't had a puff since. It was easy and the only side effects I had were vivid dreams.

I started Chantix a month after it was approved by the FDA in May of 2006 and I am still smoke free. I personally know 20 people that quit using Chantix from 7 years to 2 years.
