Just got the Chantix yesterday. Have not started it. Haven't set my quit date either. My insurance paid 100% of the Chantix. Cost me nothing.(wow was I surprised) Reading these posts gives me more encouragement to pack my bags and start this journey!!
Hi Donna first of all let me Welcome you to a new way of life and to our non-smoking family, I know that it will be rough for a little while but once you get the chantix in your system and it starts to work in my case 8 days then al you will have to do is break the habit of your smoking routine for example after drinking coffee or eating a meal Etc and before you know you will not have the desire to light up, I have been quit for over 5 yrs now and I can even stand next to someone who is smoking and i do not get the desire I do smell the smoke on some people and i wonder why i ever started LOL Good luck and if i could do it i know you ca as always your new friend PRMike

Yesterday was my very first QUITAVERSARY! How did I miss that? Was it because I don't think about smoking any longer? Was it because I was busy doing healthy things? Probably both, but I missed it. Happy Quitaversary to me!!!!

Most notably, where is Marge?

Happy reunion day! Meme is having trouble with her password....I am lucky my computer remembers mine for me!

On the 9th, I will be 4 years and 7 months quit. That is more than 40,000 cigs I did not smoke and in today's prices, more than $11,000 I did not burn.

I met good friends here. Thank you for helping me quit!
