Yay, I finally found this thread!
I'm on Day 60 of no smoking, no vaping, no nicotine in any form, but I have been using Chantix.
Y'all may be aware that Pfizer has put a production hold on Chantix, and it is currently unavailable. It's not on recall, they just aren't shipping out any product at this time.
I was lucky and got the last of what my pharmacy had in stock - 56 tablets. I'm really worried, because I don't know if I'm ready to quit using the Chantix, but I don't have a choice.
Weaning off it hadn't occurred to me until just a couple of days ago, and then again when Eve replied to my first post in the Newcomers area. I'm going to start taking 1 tablet a day now and hope that it helps.
I'm like you, Eve, in that I *think* about smoking all the time. I'm past the actual nicotine cravings, but I probably think about smoking at least a dozen times a day. It drives me crazy.
Wish me luck. I really am nervous about not being able to get more Chantix. I've only been on it for about 90 days, and don't think I'm ready to be without the stuff yet.
I understand completely. If you completely read the thread I even cut them in half, just to help.
Congratulations on 60 days! It’s a tough road, but possible!
I am now exactly 1 year and 6 months free of nicotine! I still think about it, but I’m extremely happy that I chose to take my life back.
Keep up the good work and do not be discouraged if you “think” about it, but be proud you didn’t ACT ON IT!
Good morning Diane. I stopped the poison smoke in 2007 using Chantix. I did lower
the dose towards the end but hard to remember how much or how long. I do remember
splitting them. Don't ever think about going back to smoke, it was a terrible addition.
You can do it.
