    I started this medication a week and a half ago and I set my quit date for 4 days ago. So far it has been really easy to stop and I quit on the date I set. It feels like when my mind tries to think about smoking it pushes the thought right out of my head. As for the side effects, it is really hard to sleep at night because of the dreams and I've had a few bad headaches. I am also experiencing ... Show Full Comment

    I am on day 12 of my starter pack. I have not had a cigarette today nor am I carrying any on me. I only smoked 5 on day 10, 2 1/2 on day 11 and zip for today. On Saturday the 15th, my goal was to finish the last 4 packs in a carton. But the med made me slow down so much I still have 3 unopened packs so I knew it would take forever to finish them.

    On second week of start pack. The first .5mg and 1mg days were good, noticed a considerable reduction in cravings with little to no side effects. When I started the 2mg days, I get extremely nauseous after the morning pill but not the evening pill. I also have increased cravings, making it harder to not smoke. I will be calling my doctor to see if its possible to just do the .5 or 1mg a day dosage ... Show Full Comment

    My senses are all messed up. Especially taste and smell. Everything tastes BAD and smells are extreme, good and bad. I finished all but the last week of the starter pack and had to quit. I've been off chantix for 3-4 weeks and the symptoms are only getting worse. I might quit food before I quit smoking. This stuff scares me. Anything that messes with your well being so much should be wat ... Show Full Comment
