Welcome to the Matt. You came to the right place for support. If you haven't done so already, educate yourself about nicotine addiction and create a quit plan. These two steps made quitting possible for me. You'll want to use your Chantix for a while (check directions) before you stop the tobacco.
If you need to support or just want to share your journey, just reach out. We're here for you.
You can do this one day at a time.

Excellent! A great thinking start. I used Chantix on my first quit (lol). It was a miracle drug for me. I hope it is the same for you. You can do this quit “thing”. Believe it! Best Wishes.
Congratulations on your decision to quit and welcome to Ex!
Thank you everyone for responding! It amazes me how serious this addiction is and how hard it is to find professional help. I have finally found a psychologist to meet with Wednesday who specializes in quitting and addiction. I think the hardest part is getting your head and thinking right.
Welcome and I am so glad for you
