Chantix Review - Days 16 - 30

What can I say? This Chantix just simply works! It has been another two weeks, and I am still not smoking. Not even one. Never in my life, with no matter what stop smoking method I tried, could I ever state that I had not had any cigarettes in this amount of time.

It is getting far easier now. I am beginning to forget about smoking altogether. It is a habit that must be unlearned, even though you don't have much of a physical addiction any longer. I am getting there now. Forgetting that I used to smoke after meals. Forgetting that I used to smoke heavily when I was on the telephone at home in my garage. Forgetting that I was a smoker at all. Sure there are still the rare occurrences that it crosses your mind, but they are fleeting thoughts. Gone in an instant.

I got my second month's supply yesterday. I am going to continue taking Chantix throughout this month, but I doubt I will continue with the prescribed third month if I am doing this well. I can only imagine I will be doing even better by then.

I am an ex-smoker!!! I have gotten several of my friends trying it out, and all are reporting terrific results much like my own.

You can do it too. It really does work.

Chantix Review - Days 10 - 15

Wow... another five days have already gone by and I feel GREAT! Today marks the 1 week anniversary of my being completely smoke free and it has actually been relatively easy by comparison to anything else I have ever tried to quit smoking.

There have been a few rough hours over the course of the last several days, but it hasn't been anything the average person couldn't handle. I certainly don't have iron willpower.

The cigarette cravings just usually don't last very long at all, but on days 12 and 13 I had some of the strongest urges I have had since beginning this Chantix test. Having tried to quit in the past, I can assure you they were shorter and less intense than they would have been without Chantix, but it was a test. Happily I passed the test, and since then it has really been getting much easier.

Over the weekend I even had a few drinks with one of my good friends and neighbors, who I used to sit around the garage and smoke and drink with on occasion on the weekends. I told him not to feel uncomfortable about smoking around me, as I had to expose myself to it sooner or later. I was very happy to see that I didn't crave one at all. Quite the contrary, they didn't seem appealing at all. Not nauseating or anything, just not appealing. Sort of like a tolerant non-smoker must feel.
Hmmm... come to think of it, I guess that's what I am now... a tolerant non-smoker. ;)

As far as side effects for the past few days go, nothing too terrible to report. I am noticing a bit of an unpleasant taste in my mouth, but its not that bad, a breath mint on occasion is a good thing for us all anyway.

I haven't seemed to be able to sleep quite as long lately, approximately, 5-6 hours a night, and I am not sure if that is because of the Chantix or not.
I must say I haven't felt at all tired from it, as some people have reported. I actually feel much more energized lately than ever.

Chantix lists "changes in dreams, or unusual dreams" as a possible side effect. I can't say I have had any unusual dreams or nightmares, but I have been dreaming much more frequently and able to remember most of my dreams after awaking. I am actually quite enjoying it, as I usually don't dream or at least do not remember dreaming after I awake. I feel it is a bonus.

If you are ready to quit, I suggest you give it a try.

Chantix Review - Days 8 - 9

It's early morning on Day 10 amd I am very happy to report that I am now in excess of 48 hours being entirely smoke free and nicotine free.

I can't remember ever being able to say that before. I have gone longer smoke free, but always with some sort of nicotine replacement.

I must admit it feels great!

Has it been easy? I don't know if I would call it "easy", but much easier than I anticipated, and certainly easier than any previous attempt. There have been cravings, or urges. But I would have to describe them as more than manageable. I haven't had any noticeable mood swings. ( and my family would let me know if I had ;) I have noticed that I need to keep myself occupied, but that is normal. You aren't taking those numerous smoke breaks every few minutes. You have lots more time to get things done.

Is Chantix a magic bullet that mysteriously takes away every smoking urge, craving, withdrawal symptom, and psychological trigger? Absolutely not. That would be a marvelous pill indeed. But one of those will likely never exist. However, Chantix has been a significant help so far in reducing the symptoms dramatically.

You still have to want to quit smoking. You will still be accountable for your actions. Ultimately it is up to you whether you smoke or not, but this little pill seems to be making this road for me, a much easier one to travel.

I'm sure there are more trials and tribulations ahead. I will keep you informed....

Chantix Review - Days 5 - 7

Here we are again. Sorry to be bunching days together, but good or bad, there has just been nothing newsworthy about my Chantix experiment.

The last entry I made was during day 5, and here we are early in Day 7, and I am happy to report that I haven't had any real trouble with the Chantix side effects so far.

Unfortunately, I have been feeling a bit under the weather due to a sinus cold/allergies, but I can hardly attribute that to the Chantix.

Early on I was concerned about mood swings/depression etc. None of which have occurred so far. We are still early in the game, and I expect there might be a few twists and turns ahead, but I think I am prepared. From all that I have read the physical withdrawal symptoms are reduced to such a great degree that they are much less noticeable.

Tomorrow is my scheduled quite date. I must admit I am a bit nervous, but I am excited all the same.

Be sure to check back for the update on how the first smoke free day goes!

Wish me luck!

Chantix Review - Days 2-4

With nothing much to report on days 2-4 I decided to forgo individual posts for those days.

Perhaps some very mild side effects, such as a bit of mild anxiety on Day 2. However, it is only fair that I confess to having had mild anxiety in the past. This was nothing nearly as severe as anything I have experienced before and it passed within a few minutes.

Mild gas/constipation on Days 3-4 which I can't 100% attribute to Chantix, however it is listed as a possible side effect, so it bears noting here. All in all, nothing severe whatsoever. In the interest of fair reporting, I feel I need to disclose everything no matter how mild I have experienced during this review.

I am currently on Day 5 of my prescription which is the second day of twice a day dosages of .5mg per tablet. So far I haven't noticed any major changes in my smoking habits. However, I do notice a difference in taste over the last 24-48hrs. and think I am beginning to experience a bit less of the "nicotine rush".

It's still very early in this trial, but I am really pleased with the methods so far.I really think continuing to smoke for the first 7 days is a bonus for me. In the beginning I wasn't so sure, but having had time to reflect over the course of the past few days I really believe it is giving me time to grow used to the idea of quitting, without having to feel guilty about still smoking. I am supposed to continue smoking!

As the days move on, I firmly believe the physical addiction is going to be much easier to defeat than the psychological addiction. The smoking rituals, if you will. I have found myself smoking out of ritual already, and realizing I really didn't want the cigarette.I'll keep you posted on how this all transpires.Until tomorrow...

Chantix Review - Day 1

Here we are... Day 1! Monday April 2nd 2007.
If all goes as planned Monday April 9th will be my quit date.

I started taking Chantix this morning at approximately 9am. The first dose is a single .5mg tablet and as I would certainly expect... there is really nothing to report. No side effects whatsoever. But, it is still very early in the game. Who knows what future days will bring.

I am very excited, and hopeful that this will finally be my ticket to being smoke free.

Tomorrow is my 39th birthday, and I would really like to remember this one as when I was finally able to kick the habit. For my 8 year old daughter as well. I want to be in her life for a very long time.

Wish me luck, and stay tuned. This might just be what you have been looking for as well.

See you tomorrow.

Chantix - Miracle Drug or Major Disappointment

If you are a current smoker and are even considering trying to kick the habit, you have undoubtedly heard of a new stop smoking aid on the market called Chantix. If you are like me you have probably been scouring the web to find out as much about this supposed miracle drug as you possibly can. Chantix reviews are few and far between at the moment, but I hope to help in that area. I will be chronicling my progress with this new smoking cessation aid over the course of the next few weeks, as a real life case study in the benefits or shortcomings of Chantix.

For those of you who aren't entirely familiar with Chantix here is a bit of background directly from the manufacturer Pfizer.

There are receptors for nicotine in the brain. When smoke is inhaled, nicotine attaches to these receptors. This sends a message to a different part of the brain to release a chemical called dopamine. Dopamine gives a feeling of pleasure. But it only lasts for a short time. The body wants to repeat this feeling. Based on research, it is believed that CHANTIX™ (varenicline) works by activating these receptors and blocking nicotine from attaching to them. However, CHANTIX does not contain nicotine.

Chantix is currently only available with a prescription. However there are ways around that obstacle for those that are curious, I will be providing that information as well in a future post. I certainly don't recommend taking any medication without first consulting a qualified health professional. However, as I mentioned I will, for posterity, provide details on obtaining Chatix with and without a prescription, very soon.

As a 25 year smoker having tried numerous methods to kick the habit, I am very excited about the possibilities this product promises.

Stay tuned... we are going to go through this together.
