How are you doing?

I started taking Chantix 13 days ago and was going to slowing wean off of cigarettes. Something totally different happened. When I started my second week, suddenly I had cut down to 4, then 3, then 1.5, then 0 cigarettes. I am on my 3rd day of 0 cigarettes smoked. The last cigarette I smoked about 4 days ago, hurt my throat, made me feel like I was suffocating, I couldn't stand the smell on my cigarette hand, and I was nauseated. THIS reaction is the main reason I haven't smoked. I have really been wanting a cigarette a lot lately, but I feel like if I have one, then I am starting again at square 1. I feel like the longer I hold off, the quicker I will stop "jonesing".

What are your thoughts?
