Hi everyone!!! I am so glad I stumbled onto this web page. It's very interesting and you guys have so much to offer. Like the rest of you, I started Chantix last Saturday, 10/13. This Saturday was my first day without a cig. I did allot of research on this medicine and actually read some horrible reviews about it. I took the reviews to my doctor and ask him to read. He did and his reply was "he would bet that most of these folks didn't follow the instructions"! So trusting him as I do, I started taking the meds. I did smoke the first week as per the instructions and found myself trying to finish up that pack before midnight. LOL I can't say that I have found myself thinking of them but have not craved one either. I keep sugar free candies and when I think of a cig, I eat a candy. I do take the Chantix after a meal and make sure I drink that 8 oz of water. I don't like water but I do drink it so I don't get sick. I believe the very first day my stomach felt a little upset but that may have been in my head because of all the reading about it I did. Dream...well I do find myself dreaming and they are not good dreams. So far, it's only been 3 times. I hope that goes away too. Nevertheless, I have not smoked a cig since last Friday night. I also got a book called "EasyWay for Women to Stop Smoking" by Allen Carr. There is also his book "EasyWay to Stop Smoking". He claims there is a difference reason why women smoke than men. This is book is like no other I have ever read. This also has helped me. Once you read this book, you won't want to smoke. So with the Chantix and this book, I feel like I'm on my way to success. Don't give up quiting. I lost my Mother 2 years ago to lung cancer. I'm a young 58 and I hope to stay that way. I do worry about gaining weight. I've lost 55 pounds and I really don't want to gain that back. Does anyone know of folks that has gained allot of weight taking Chantix? Thanks again for the support here. glorifay
