The Chantix is doing something.....

I'm on day 10 of Chantix. I was starting to worry that maybe this drug wouldn't work for me as I was still smoking the same amount...up until yesterday. I smoke about 12-15 cigarettes a day, and without even realizing it I only smoked 5 yesterday. I smoke 3 before work, but today I only smoked 1/2 a cigarette. So it's definitely doing something. Only side effect I'm experiencing is a lower than usual heart rate for me, but I do not feel any different. If I didn't wear my iWatch and know what my normal HR is I wouldn't have noticed anything. 

My husband on the other hand had to get off of Chantix on Day 6. He was vomiting all day and was starting to get depressed. He's upset that the drug didn't work for him, and I'm upset to be doing this alone, but he will find another method and I am trying to stay the course with Chantix as it seems to be working so far. 

Thanks for listening....
