Day 10 on Chantix and feel NOTHING differentI
nowthis posted:
I have been smoking for 11 years, I'm 27.

I started Chantix 10 days ago and am still smoking like a freight train! I feel absolutely no different, no less cravings, nothing. They still taste good!

This is so aggravating! I HAVE to stop smoking! In having surgery in 22 days and I really need to stop smoking ASAP. This is making me really sad because if I were not able to get this surgery I'm going to flip out. I'm having wright loss surgery(vertical sleeve gastrectomy).

Anyone have any suggestions??

Thank You,

I smoked for 40 years and if it weren't for Chantix I would still be smoking. I am a firm believe in taking Chantix to stop smoking. It's the only med on the market that actually does what its supposed to do. I've recommended Chantix to family and friends and will continue recommending the medication to anyone who wants to kick the habit. I can't imagine why your urges haven't lessened. If you're currently taking medication along with Chantix that could be the reason why your unable to curb the smoking. Are you using the Chantix online support? Please continue taking the medication as prescribed and talk with your doctor. Good Luck!

Good for you. I used Chantix 2 times. I only used it for the first month both times, thinking I had everything under control. I should have refilled prescriptions. This time I have tried hypnosis. I have been smoke free for almost 2 months now.
