I started taking chantix 4 days ago and according to the directions I am supposed to quit this coming Friday. I noticed immediately that I was not getting that "high" or "relief" I used to get from smoking. I have reduced my cigarettes from 20 a day to about 6-7 a day. But, it is so hard to know what to do when I wake up in the morning, after meals, driving, or talking on the phone without smoking a cigarette. This medication helps because if I do chose to smoke, it really doesn't fulfill me. Has anyone quit a week after they started chantix and how was that experience? Does each day on the medication make it easier and easier? I'm willing to do whatever it takes, but I would like to prepare myself a little if the cravings will still be there.
