Smoking Cessation Board Index

I had a heck of a time with Chantix. But I kept on with it because nothing else worked for me. Welbutrin, patches, cold turkey, hypnosis and gum just didn't help.

When I first started taking the pill I was going nuts with the side effects. The sleepless nights were terrible. I was about to quit the Chantix until a poster informed me that trouble sleeping was also a symptom of nicotine withdrawl. If you look it up, alot of the side effects of Chantix are also side effects of nicotine withdrawl. So you can't blame everything on the pill.

Some of the things that I did on my journey to being nicotine free was:

1. picked fights with my wife
2. yelled at the kids
3. cut down on alcohol
4. was sleepy
5. ate sunflower seeds
6. took my dog for walks in the middle of the night
7. cut my evening pill in half after a couple weeks
8. cut out my evening pill all together
9. slept a little better
10. picked fights with my wife
11. wanted a smoke
12. didn't want a smoke
13. was in a brain fog for a month
14. was very proud of myself for finally kicking the stupid habit
15. picked a fight with my wife
16. wanted a smoke
17. didn't want to smoke

I've been at it for 5 months or so and my journey isn't over yet. All I know is that after all of the bullsh*t that I went through, I never want to go through that again. That's what keeps me from picking up another stupid cig.

Good luck to you on your journey.
