... Going on week number 3, and haven't smoked in 2 weeks. Feels good. Now I want to stop Chantix all together after the starter pack runs out (1 more week). Anybody done this and been successful? I know most of you will probably tell me to just continue for the 12 weeks and not to risk it. Well it's a financial decision for me. My insurance for some reason doesn't even... (8 replies)
... Good luck to you... I have no idea what "champix" is though. Sounds like you are talking about a different drug. (8 replies)

... twice a day for 1 week and as no improvement to sleep probs., on my GP's advice stopped them altogether. I did not experience any withdrawal symptons at all from stopping Champix. Alas, am still only sleeping a maximum of 3 hours a night but the good news is that I am still not smoking and do not have the urge to smoke either. ... (8 replies)
... My wife in on Champix, its the same drug as Chantix.... it all comes down to licensing issues with the names of drugs. In Canada its also called champix and so far my wife has been 2 weeks without a cigarette and the only side effect she suffers from is increased sex drive.... I can't keep up! Hahaha! (8 replies)

... t worry about cravings too much as we are frequently told that a craving is subconsious or because of habit so after 3 months logic would suggest that coming off Chantix won't be like quitting smoking over again because we have already overcome the worst. ... (37 replies)
... I remember a posting I made early on saying that this "magic" pill was incredible and it seemed almost too easy. I've got two months to go on Chantix and I'm terrified about stopping. I'm so afraid that the addiction is just gonna rear it's ugly head in full force. ... (37 replies)

... This also made me keenly aware of what was smoking withdrawal and what was Chantix side effect. ... (8 replies)
... To the best of my knowledge, cold turkey withdrawal symptoms can last at least a month with cravings gradually reducing for up to a year. Surely coming off Chantix completely at a very early stage is asking for trouble. My advice is to reduce the dose if side effects are a problem. ... (17 replies)

... Thanks and I hope you do too. I havent had a period since the day I quit smoking and when th doc asked if I had any mood swings I was tempted to give him a black eye due to the fact that he had recently prescribed Chantix, and I had just told him that quitting was the hardest thing I have ever done. MOOD SWINGS- ME? What do you mean? I INVENTED THEM:dizzy: But seriously, I... (37 replies)
... Oh Paula Poor you Rash is listed as one of the less common side effects. If it was me I would split a pill in half and take twice a day for a few days and see how it goes. You definitely do not want to risk being tempted back to smoking for the sake of a temporary skin rash. If it gets worse you will obviously have to re-think. Oddly, I have had quite a few spots on my face... (37 replies)
... Chantix should be pretty much out of your system within a week of stopping it. That said, insomnia is common in many ex smokers in the early phases of a quit. My insomnia lasted a few months after going cold turkey. One thing you can do is to watch the caffeine. ... (2 replies)
