Hi all. My name is Connie and I just joined this site last night. I am in my 5th week of using Chantix and have cut the smoking in half or more. I am also taking Zyban but was originally put on it for spinal problems. It didn't seem to help curb the urge to smoke but has helped with the back pains. Anyway I am amazed how the urge to smoke has lessened since I started the Chantix. I couldn't seem to get down to less than 10 cigs a day but I think this site will help. It gave me some good ideas and the group support will go a long way too. I work 13 hour shifts and can now get by on only 1 cigatette in that time span. Having to go outside helps too. I have enjoyed reading all your discussions and look forward to a long and healthy relationship with you. Thanks for your support in advance. The only side effect I am fighting is bouts of nausea at times but not bad enough to quit the Chantix.
