    Hey all,
    I took Chantix last year to quit smoking and it worked quite well, really. But for the past 2 months I've been smoking again, mostly because of real life issues that just caught up to me and stressed me out to my limits, so I turned back to something I knew, other than alcohol. Now my concern is, I have some left over, about a packet and a half left. I do not have the starter pack anymore, and quite frankly I cannot afford chantix again as I lost my coverage through the state. Would it be safe for me to start taking it right off the bat again without the starter pack? would anyone know? And if it helps, I started taking it around... end of august 09, and finished up around October.

    Call their support number and see. It is printed on all the packs of Chantix.
