Hi - Today is my Quit Day

Day Two - the sun is shining. My morning coffee still tastes good. I am a NON smoker - at last. I woke up this morning thanking the universe for FREEDOM. This is actually exciting! Chantix has been a huge help to me and certainly does take the "edge" off. Finding this board and hearing from so many other successful NON smokers has been equally helpful. Thanks all! May everyone enjoy a beautiful September weekend. It's the start of a new season in more ways than one. Margo. :p [B]My Milage:[/B] [B]My Quit Date: [/B]9/21/2007 [B]Smoke-Free Days:[/B] 1 [B]Cigarettes Not Smoked:[/B] 25 [B]Amount Saved:[/B] $6.25 [B]Life Gained:[/B] [B]Days:[/B] 0 [B]Hrs:[/B] 4 [B]Mins:[/B] 23 [B]Seconds:[/B] 49

Hi - Today is my Quit Day

:) ;) To each and every one of you that has written in with words of support: THANK YOU! I hope (expect) to have an impressive Mileage record after my name in a few weeks time and be able to return these favors to some other "newbies". To Keliza, especially, I am following right behind you on this new road. The view is terrific! I am really doing fine today - it is much better than yesterday. There are actually minutes at a time when you know what is out of my thoughts. I find this very encouraging. I am able to be busy with other things today, including a wedding this afternoon. To one and all, have a great day.

Hi - Today is my Quit Day

Hi All - still quit!! This is really a marvel to me. Had a wonderful time at my friend's daughter's wedding today and evening. Even enjoyed some wine sans nicotine without undue discomfort. I can do this!! Hallelujah! Hope everyone out there is having a good weekend. Thanks for the support.

Chantix users - how did you feel?

Hi Starfish - I am using Chantix with wonderful results. I am starting day three as a non smoker (yeah!!!) and each day is easier. Having tried to quit many times before and never making it beyond day one, this time is a miracle for me. I am quite sure the Chantix has made all the difference. Here are a few things I have learned about using the Chantix: Pfizer recommends you stop smoking on day eight. I wasn't ready yet so went to day 18. By then, without a lot of thought, my number of smokes per day was at about half. Then I stopped. The first day was tough but not impossible. By that evening, much better. Day two not bad at all. Now it's day three and I'm feeling pretty good. The side effects, when I have had them, are not a big deal. I did have occaisional very mild nausea - primarily with the morning dose. It really does help to have food or milk with the medication. I have not had nausea since I became a non smoker. My hunch is that the chantix and smoking combined are what can send your stomach a little over the edge. Another incentive, right?! I have had the "vivid" dreams. They haven't been nightmares but have been memorable. In fact, that's maybe the best way to describe them - it isn't the content of the dream so much as the fact that you remember a lot of detail from your dream when you wake up. Usually, the memory of a dream is fleeting at best. These memories stay with you for a while. Actually kind of entertaining. Other people have recommended on other boards that you take the Chantix earlier in the evening (not right before bed) to lessen the intensity or occurrence of dreams. I am now taking my Chantix about 7 am and 7pm - I do think it has helped me sleep better to follow this schedule. I have found this board to be very, very helpful along with the Chantix. Do a search for Chantix on this site and you will find lots of other helpful info and support from others who have successfully used it to go smoke free. Best of luck to you and your husband. YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Chantix users - how did you feel?

You are most welcome Starfish. The most important thing you say in your note is " I want to quit so much" - that is your key to success. YOU want to do this - it's not about other people telling you to do it (though if you are like me, lots of folks do). If you have reached this point in your own mind then you WILL succeed. The Chantix is a tool (and a darned good one in my opinion) but the biggest tool is your vision of yourself as a NON smoker. Elsewhere on this site, I found reference to Allen Carr's writing. Had never heard of him before but read through a lot of his stuff on my day one - it really helped me to switch my thinking around a bit. I am not "giving up" anything - I am gaining freedom! Isn't that absolutely wonderful and worth it? Here's a link in case you want some added inspiration in your life too. http://www.easywayscotland.co.uk/Scandal_by_Allen_Carr.pdf Best of luck to you - please post back often on your progress. I'm rooting for you!!
