Smoking Cessation Message Board

Smoking Cessation Board Index

Hi everyone! I thought I would post an update on my progress. Here goes:

The first week of taking Chantix, I had horrible side effects. Migraine like headaches where light and sound bothered me, horrible joint and muscle pains, and feeling very bloated. On day 4, I called my doctor and asked her about it. She told me not to titrate up just yet and to do so when my headache goes away. So then on day 8, I was still on the 0.5 mg once a day dose. My side effects subsided a little. Still there, but not bad like they were. On day 8, I decided to go up to 0.5 mg twice a day. I am happy to say the morning of day 9 was my last ciggie. I threw out my pack after one because I felt very yucky after it, I could smell the cigarette on me for hours after that and about vomited, and my headache came back. It is now day 11 and I feel GREAT!!! I do have some cravings, but very mild. I bought a huge packet of sugarless gum and a lot of carrots to help with those cravings. I know I still have a way to go, but so far so good!

I think I did it! I think I am a nonsmoker! I will never, ever touch those things again. Also, reading the posts daily on this board was a HUGE motivational factor! Thanks guys! You saved my life!
