MamaFlo,

I quit in May. I stopped taking Chantix in July (I think).

The hard part is filling the void where the smoking used to be, in my opinion. I'm not having cravings - not the way I did trying to quit without the chantix. The nature of them has changed.

What I'm at a loss for much of the time is what to do instead. I used smoking as a primary coping mechanism. Now my primary coping mechanism is missing I have to reinventing the term "coping."

But, we can do this. I've only been doing this for 20 years, this should be easier for me than you right? We can do this. All of us can.

Tracee, how long have you been quit? I'm from Texas too - San Antonio.
In the 52 years I've been on this earth, quitting smoking has definitely been my biggest challenge to date. I don't know what it is, wanting to smoke, wanting a cigarette, wanting that ahhhhh feeling, changing a stressful routine........I've thought about that a lot for inspiration - just what is it that I think I'm missing out on by not smoking?
Even at 10 days I'm feeling pretty damn good and amazingly enough, I actually look better.
I don't kid myself, this is going to be a lifelong challenge, I'm certain the temptation to smoke again will be great once I'm off the Chantix (but thankfully that will be quite awhile yet).

Hang in there and stay with your quit, I'll be here if you need someone to bitch to.
