Update: Prescribed with & completed 3-months of Chantix by the end of January & have remained smoke-free thus far. I think that the positive attitude I used in quitting made the transisition easy so far. With Chantix, I found the cravings were not present & that allowed me to seek alternate means to substitute and establish new habits/routines. Didn't help that the second month was the holiday season with all the goodies showing up; am continuing to work off the added weight, but it really wasn't as much as I thought could happen. I did experience some minor hallucinations and VERY vivid dreams that seemed to be 3-D technicolor, but not erotic in nature. The other side effects of depression & suicidal tendencies never appeared & that may be attributed to the 'desire' to quit. The immediate benefits I'm seeing: More pocket change, more time for other things, improved taste smell, no one comments of smelling like an ashtray, ... til next time
