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

Start your stop smoking plan with START S = Set a quit date. T = Tell family, friends, and co-workers that you plan to quit. A = Anticipate and plan for the challenges you'll face while quitting. R = Remove cigarettes and other tobacco products from your home, car, and work. T = Talk to your doctor about getting help to quit. [url="http://www.soberrecovery.com"]Drug Rehab[/url]

When I got into recovery for my alcohol addiction, I held onto dear life to my smokes. I had smoked forever even though my family did everything in their power to make me stop. A couple years into recovery, after I understood addiction and understood that I couldn't smoke just ONE, I took what AA had taught me and worked a program around cigarettes. It has been 4 1/2 years and although there are times I would kill for a smoke, I know that if I have one I'd have to do this all over again and i will never go through that again! There is also a website called smokenet.com. Super helpful especially when I was alone.
