    I just got Chantix tonight. Has anyone used it before and did it work? I am starting on it tommorrow, wish me luck!!!
    BethAnncares responded:
    I took Chantix and quit but started about 3 mos after going off of it-if you are proned to deprsion I would not recommend it-I became etremely depressed when on it unless it was interaction because of other meds I'm on. Plan on quittinng again soon-been smoking 3 weeks now and it all started from bumming one from my son-I few days later I was off and running to buy them! May try patches to wean myself away from the habital part. Good Luck!

    Good luck, How are you doing a week later?
    Carolyncandoit replied to BethAnncares's response:
    I'm renewing my depression meds also. A lot going on in life and they say to try to stay stress free while kicking the habit but as my sister says "Give me a day on the calendar when that will happen". So, I figure that I can't make things worse by taking better care of me in the midst of it all. I wish you the best on a new start.
