Well like the title says, its been 6 months since my wife and I have quit smoking. Honestly, all that money I was going to be saving, have not seen it, lol! oh well I guess I'm healthier for it and that is a good thing. One drawback with the Chantix is even though I weaned myself a lot earlier than the doc wanted (I was completely off it after 2 months, doc wanted me on it for 6 if I remember) I haven't had a solid night of sleep even being off the Chantix for as long as I have been. Doc prescribed sleeping pills that kind of helped but I hate to rely on pills for anything let alone being able to sleep! Plus I never really felt refreshed when I was taking them kinda like I was always in a haze. I pretty sure that the doctors aren't even aware of all the side effects of these drugs they hand out like candy.
Congratulations. Can't think of a good enough reason to start again myself. Over 5 years now for my wife and I. Good luck ...the hard parts over.
Congrats. 2 weeks for me yesterday. I'm using the gum. Can't do Chantix due to medial reasons. Sleep? I barely slept when smoking and it is even worse now. My goal is to save enough for my bike payment each month which should not be a problem. We'll see how that works out in a few weeks. Physically I feel so much better. I can breathe clearly, smell things and taste my food again. It is a blessing. When I run out of gum I'll stop with the nicotine altogether. Already down to the 2MG after smoking 2 packs a day for many years.
Keep it up Drew. It gets easier with time.
