I'm on day 8 of quitting, and I am officially done. It feels good to say that! My fingers are crossed that both hubby and I stay on track this time. It's amazing not to go into this alone, and much easier with both of us supporting one another. And the Chantix has been a huge success for us.
However, I've found that Chantix has both is good and bad points, as with anything. It allowed me to quickly quit smoking, it took away any desire to smoke, and made them taste disgusting when I did give in to the habit.
On the other hand, it has caused a few sleep issues for me. My anxiety levels seem to be up, and it takes me an hour or more to fall asleep, and once I do, I experience some of the most vivid, and at times, disturbing, dreams I've ever had. But, even though I'm not sleeping well, I still feel more rested then when I was smoking.
The website and prescription package clearly warned about all the side effects I've gone through. But in all honesty, I would rather deal with a few weeks of dreams about humongous yellow snakes, being back in high school, and riding rollercoasters. Though thankfully, not all at once.
