Coming up on a month

It has been almost one month since smoking my last cigarette. (Yeah I'm gonna pat my own back a little.) I went the Chantix route along with the wife (she's doing great as well).
Just thought I'd throw this up here if anybody is thinking about doing it and had any questions or needed some encouragement. As a smoker of 30 or so years I know its damn hard to quit but if you want it, do it. It's a great feeling to not be slave to them anymore.

Congrats man! I need to do that myself. Tried the chantix once a while back and didn't work out for me. Guess I just need to man up and put em down. Keep it up!

Great job. I tried the Chantix myself, but the dragons kept me awake at night. I would have been fine till I read about the side effects. If I hadn't known about em, I would bet a dollar to a freakin donut I wouldn't have had a problem. I didn't mind the "dreams", but they woke me up. I had a BAD case of draggin ass disease after just a few nights of that crap.

So, I will say again, well done to you and your wife.

Congrats man. I quit over 2 years ago and now I wonder why I ever started. I wish I quit years ago. Just wait you will hate the cig smell soon. I can't be around it anymore it makes me sick. Your taste will come back and will enjoy food again.

good for you!! stay strong.

chantix saved my life. i was a smoker for over 30 years and it helped me quit 2.5 years ago. i still get urges but as soon as they come, they go away.

so glad i'm not a slave to cigarettes anymore too.

Congratulations.
I hope to do the same thing, either with Chantix or patches or something.

Congrats on your courage and your future better health.

Now just choose among black, chrome, engine mods, pipes, stereo, accessories, heated gear for next winter, etc. All these are WAY cheaper than the cigarettes!
