3rd day of Chantix
Jan 10, 2011
Hi all,
I happen to come across this site when I googled Chantix user support.

I'm just checking in to say hi and hope that I can learn a few things here from people who have used Chantix and quit. I've been a 1 pack a day smoker for 20 some years and I'm ready to quit. Hoping that I won't get some of the side effects that I've read about.

3rd day - not smoking as much, does taste kinda funny. Starting to put my ashtray away in between smokes.

I'll check in later! Good luck to all including me!! :eek:

Hey Sammie,
I actually came to this site reading if anyone is having the same side effects that I am having. I hate hate hate that I started smoking. I actually chewed tobacco for a lot of years and quit that about 6 months ago but started smoking. I did the Chantix last month and quit for 3 days but I also stopped taking the Chantix on my first quit day because I was not sleeping and the wild dreams kept me awake. So I started again two weeks ago. I can honestly say that on day 6 I still smoked as much and was thinking to myself "This isn't working" but the next day was my quit day and it has been a cakewalk if not for the sides. My suggestion is that you do set a quit day and that you really pump yourself up for that day. As for me I knew I couldnt quit on my own without help and wow this has been easy. I am on day 5 and can turn it down no problem. I have dealt with the sleep problem by taking a small dose of tylenol pm which works a little but the other day I was at the gym and I had a short heart palpitation which really worried me and I did not associate it with the Chantix. Yesterday while at the gym I had one and it has not gone away in 24 hours. Then I read about a lot of people having them while on Chantix. While I am not worried about my health I am considering quitting the Chantix because this is really bothersome. Hopefully I am at a point where I can be ok by myself. I am going snow skiing next week so that will be a good distraction. Good luck!!
Hi! I quit using chantix. I actually didn't quit until day 9 taking it. On the third week taking it, I cut down to one pill a day and the fourth week I think I took only 3, I still have some left. I was lucky, I didn't have any side effects. I was really nervous when I started Chantix because of everything you read. I kept a journal to see when I would go crazy!! lol The only things I had was normal to quitting smoking.

I am now 80 days smoke free!! The cravings are very few now and very fleeting and managable. I just want you to know it does get easier and you can do it!!!!

Read all you can on it and keep posting, we are here to help you, we will cheer you on and be here when you want to whine and complain. lol

Keep the quit (ktq)
NOPE= Not One Puff Ever :)
