I've smoked for 40 years, and think I should quit for my own health, as well as those around me. I'd be interested in hearing from people that used Chantix to help them stop. Years ago I tried the patch-forget it. Tried the gum and stopped for 2 weeks, but couldn't sleep, and gave up. Perhaps there are some that were not "highly motivated" types like myself, but thought it was probably the right thing to do. Does the Chantix work? I think if I got away from the smokes for awhile, I could make it after that.

My husband smoked for 40+ years also, he started on the Chantix and has been smoke free for over 4 months now!!!!!!! Please give it a try and good luck with it. Hubby has done very well, only mild desire to smoke at the key times like after a meal or fishing, etc. I am so proud of him so make yourself proud too....

How bad did he really want to quit? Maybe I'm the type who just doesn't figure anything will help me. Ha Ha. Is your husband totally off the Chantix now, or did he decide to go another 3 months on it?

Most about 2-3 months after doing a month with the Chantix.One girl did go back to it but her husband smokes and I think that got to her w/out the pill.

Only a month with the Chantix? According to their website, you're supposed to take it for 3 months.

Good luck della , and remember Chantix , patches ,we llbuterin are only an assist, it you think they are a silver bullet your setting youtrself up gfor failure , and as soon as you go off you will go back to smoking. quit cause you want to , and want to more than anything else. then the chantix will take the edge off during the first 3 months, the hardest time, and then you will do it.

As I saw it one was too many and million was not enough.

if i could do it , You CAN DO IT !

19 months smoke free

The little lady and I got Chantix and have since quit smoking. I started before her, so I've been smoke free since June 14th. She's is now on her 2nd day without a cigarette. I really didn't have a hard time at all not smoking. It was basically her idea to quit. I wasn't all that motivated myself, but if I start again, I know she will. And with her family history that's not a wise decision. Now that it's been close to 3 weeks, I'm thinking I can do this.
