If I remember correctly there were different doses for the first week or two and you had to ramp up to the full dose but during that time you were supposed to smoke as much as you liked. Tapering off the cigarettes came after the first week and for me the tapering process was from a pack a day to two cigs a day after three days, I just didn't care to smoke anymore. I was forcing myself to smoke and couldn't finish the damn thing.
I remember feeling a bit "off " for a few days and the dreams I got were very vivid. The bottom line is that was two years ago and I've barely had an itch for a smoke yet. I swear by that drug, it was easiest and most complete way of quitting I've tried. Good luck on kicking the habit and enjoy the dreams.

It has different side effects on different people. I took it for a while. For the first week or so I was seeing pink elephants in my dreams with regularity. After the initial week or so, that goes away. I had to stop taking it because it would make me nausiated.

Quite interesting how this stuff works. Seems that nicotene molecules are one of a very few molecules that are able to pass from blood vessels into your brain. Chantix gets into you blood stream, attaches itself to nicotene molecules and prevents them from passing the blood/brain barrier. You can smoke all you want, but you'll never get any nicotene to your brain with this stuff in your system.

Planning on giving Chantix a shot myself. Want to have children soon and don't want to smoke once the wife is pregnant. Let me know how it works out Paul.

I smoked Marlboro Reds for more than 30 years - took Chantix for 2 weeks, quit, took it 2 more weeks and took myself off it, and have been smoke free for more than 2 years. If you wanna quit, this stuff works, no bullsh*t. You may want to ask the doc for a prescription for Valium to take the edge off, though.

I smoked for 15 years used for four weeks and I have not looked back since. I tried lots of other methods before that. It is painless. I cannot reccomend it enough!

I smoked for 15 years myself. I had tried everything before, but nothing worked. I just enjoyed smoking too much. Tried Chantix, within 1 week I went from 2 packs a day to 3 cigs a day. After a month, I was down to 1 cig a day. I smoked 1 cig a day for about 4 months, then just put them down. Have been smoke free for 18 months now. Trust me, if Chantix could help me, it'll help anyone!

I'm about to pull the trigger on it, packaday+ smoker for 20 years, I hope it works as 6 bux a pack is bullshit, I've heard about the racy dreams and whatnot and not to worried about em, what will determine the effectiveness is if it can hold me off after a thick steak, a good beer buzz,or a knob creek on the rocks, I'll report back after the scrip.......

I did cold turkey year ago. Did chantix for a week- fockit, some weird sh!t was getting in my head. I did sunflower seeds to keep my hands buzy and when was "bad"- tylenol PM or Dayquil. Other than that, this was best: Factory makes $1.10- 1.25, retailer 0- 1.0, delivery and distributor 5-25c per pack, BUT FJersey morons-$3.50 for doing sh!t and they still broke!!!!!!!!! This realy got me to quit after 20 years!
Cheers! You can do it- just look at the pack and picture Corzine (FJ governor)stealing your money!!!!

Day 4 wasn't all that great.The night before,I took 2 .5 valuims and I still got up at 2 am. WTF! Anyway,I made a run to go pick up a freash water tank and by the time I got back home I was sick.I did put myself to bed and slept for 4 hours.That is something I just don't do.Day 4 is when you step up and start taking 1 pill in early and 1 at night.

First thing today,I had to work,so I held off taking anything till I knew what the day was going to bring.The head buzz has slacked off some what,but it is still there and I am back up to speed.I am still smoking,but did drop back to less then a pack a day from 1 1/2 packs a day.The way this crap works is by the 7th day you quit all together.I am shooting for April 1st as "D" day.

On a side note.Man,can I smell! Last wendsday when I walked inside the house,the wife hear me and had open a beer for me before I walked inside and that was the first thing I noticed.Very strong at that.Ashtrays and me just don't mix at all now.The wife is happy about that for sure.

Make sure you take your pill with something in your stomach. I eat breakfast now for that reason. Otherwise it upsets my stomach a little. No cigs today.

I'm on day five. As stated above,take with food. The nausea for some (like me) can be really bad. Screws up your sleep too but in the end I think it will be worth it. Have cut smoking back over 50% so far. Have to have a mind set to quit before starting the program. Good lickto all.

Worked like a charm for me. The only side effects were loss of apetite (good thing) and the best dreams I have ever had...
I would take it again just to have another chance at Christy Brinkley. I was almost to third base there a few times !!!
I had forgotten what third base was until I tried the Chantix....
