Well, I had some cigs over the weekend, but yesterday was my first day without ALL DAY. I'm now into my second day, and it's going pretty well. I hate being so hungry all the time, though. I also find it amazing that no one's noticing I'm not going outside at work anymore, and I was even with relatives over the weekend, who didn't notice. Where is all the adulation? That will come, I guess. I haven't told people just in case I fail, but at this rate it looks like success is at my door. Thank you for the good wishes.View Thread
How special! I am into my second month of Chantix, and today is my quit day. I followed the advice of a friend who said she would NEVER quit smoking, and didn't set a quit date when they tell you to. Last night I gave my husband my cigs and told him to hide them from me, that "I can't be on this drug forever". I can't describe it, but it works. I had NONE of the adverse side effects. My dreams actually improved and became lovely. You won't need the patches, Sugar. My only concern now, is weight gain, but I can deal with that. GOOD LUCK and keep me posted, as I will you.View Thread
