Smoking Cessation Message Board


Smoking Cessation Board Index


Well today I took my second dose of Chantix. I am slightly nervous as this isn't the first time that I have taken Chantix. I had already started taking measures to help the success of my quit. I went from smoking 1 1/2 packs a day to smoking anywhere from 1 pack to 1/2 a pack a day, (Depending on the stress level that day). There are slights differences from this time to last time.

THIS TIME
1) My SO is quitting as well.
2) I have support from all my friends and family.
3) I am able to express my feelings.

LAST TIME
1) My SO chained smoked in front of me. (2 1/2 - 3 packs a day)
2) Everyone expected me to quit, but be a bowl of sunshine.
3) I held in a lot of feelings so I was a walking time bomb as is.

I know that these things are small, but to me I feel that they will make a difference. The first time I took it, I would sneak my Ex-husband cigarette butts, or a whole cigarette and go hide somewhere and take a couple puffs off. This time Since my SO is quitting with me there will be no Cigarettes to steal to sneak, Also We don't smoke in the house so that is different. I have a lot of mixed emotions, but one thing I feel above all is excitement. I am excited that I am going to be quitting. I am excited that I will be a none smoker. I know that I have a lot of work to do, but I am willing. I know that the Nicodemon will kick in eventually, and whisper in my ear how weak I have been in the past, how I can't ever imagine my life without smoking. Well in that last part the Nicodemon would be correct, but as with life you have something like an ex or another habit (which I don't) and you can't picture your life without that certain something, then it goes away and bam you are living life without it. I think that it is time I figured out how to live my life without the cigarettes. before I know it I won't be saying I can't imagine my life without cigarettes, I will saying how did I ever let them control my life. I know I am rambling and all over the place, but there is so much I want to say that I my thoughts are scattered. Well I will continue to post and update how I am doing.

So far on the medication I haven't experienced any side effects. Last time after about 2 weeks I started to experience hostility, but I am hoping I won't. I know I will experience some irritability, but that is just par for the course of quitting smoking.

Well I am out for right now.

Stephanie
