3rd day on Chantix

Blog Post created by Angie_machado on Jul 15, 2017

3rd day with Chantix!  Little nauseous before I took my pill this morning, but not bad at all.  I can tell the nicotine is releasing from it's grip as I was able to not smoke for an hour today with not much problems.  I had to go to Morro Bay which is about 40 minutes from my house and I told myself I'm not going to smoke on the way over or back.  I kept repeating out loud "I DON'T SMOKE" and "NOT ONE PUFF EVER" the thoughts of smoking passed and I really had a nice trip there and back.  Quitting is never been my problem..........staying an EX is my biggest challenge.  I've been reading the Carr book and I realize that when I quit I'm always waiting for something grand to happen. Nothing ever does so I go back to smoking because I feel like I'm missing out on something since nothing grand happened when I quit.  Weird I know, but the book is really helping me understand this is a normal feeling for people trying to quit.  I have 4 days left to smoke like a train but my hubby just asked if I wanted to go outside and smoke and I said, " No not really".  My husband did a double take and went out by himself.  He is set to quit in 4 days too. Thank you everyone for their post and we'll wishes.  I need you support more than you will ever know.   Angie
