Tomorrow will be day 3 for me on Chantix. I had planned my quit date for Nov 1st but after reading and going through the program it says you should try to quit around day 8 on the drug. My husband quit smoking using the Chantix almost a year and a half ago. He never read any of the directions or joined the online program they have. He told me to just let the drug do it's thing and my desires to smoke will get less and less and it will happen that when I do smoke they will taste terrible and I will wonder why I even bothered to smoke it. He said that's when he knew it was time for him. I'm usally a person that likes to follow directions and make a plan to follow. Any suggestions?
