Amazing! I have visited some sites today, mainly Maggie’s Mind
She has links to other people who have quit smoking with Chantix and are blogging about it. Thank you Maggie! I am so glad you found me! I love your site!
I need to give a little history about me. First of all, I found out about 6 years ago that I have COPD, Chronic Obstructive Pulminary Disorder, basically a fancy way of saying chronic bronchitis, emphysema, etc. I was told to quit smoking for about the 1,000th time and I listened, got a little scared, and tried again. This went on and on for years. My family begged me to quit, every time I got sick and had to take the prednisone, Advair, Antibiotic and one time I had to use a Nebulizer at home and do breathing treatments. Was that enough! Yes, each time it was enough, I wanted to quit, I was motivated like a lot of people out there that are still smoking are. I couldn’t quit…until today. I have put together 16 “todays”. Chantix has helped me so much. I wasn’t one of those that quit at exactly 8 days. Oh I tried and then I would have one in the morning, one at noon, and one before bed. I thought that was pretty darn good! Three is a lot better than my usual 40 cigs/day. I quit on the 12th day. Those four days I was just torturing myself and extending the withdrawl symptoms. I could have been through with all this four days earlier instead of dragging it out. Once I figured out that “I can’t quit smoking until I QUIT smoking.” Duh!!
