My First Day of Chantix!!! Help!!


Hi Everyone! I am beginning my first day of the Stop-Smoking drug, "Chantix" today. I thought I would start this blog for support, advice, experience, and hope from those of you who are just starting the process, in the middle of the process, or have succeeded or failed to quit smoking on Chantix. Let me tell you a little about me...My name is Leah, I am 34 years old, and have been smoking a pack a day for 20 years. I just went to the doc last week and found a large lump in my breast. This is scaring the crap out of me (I have a mammogram & ultrasound Friday) because my dad died of cancer a few months ago at 54, and both my grandmothers passed away in their 60's from breast cancer. SO........I need to quit smoking!!!! I have wanted to quit & tried to quit for about a year now, but after this cancer scare, I am so serious, and I need to hear from you. I need support. I am a recovering addict & alcoholic-and have been clean for quite a while, and I couldn't have done it without my meetings & support from my fellow addicts. Now the only way I think I can be successful at this smoking cessation, along with Chantix, is the support from my fellow smokers & ex-smokers. Believe me...The fellowship saved my life in one way, now I truly believe it will save my (& hopefully someone else's) life as well. So here I go to take my first pill. PLEASE let's help each other out! I welcome any & everyone from anywhere, as long as we all have something in common...the desire to quit smoking & are considering Chantix. Thanks for taking the time to read my babble!!! :) I can't wait to hear from all of you!!
