Ditto what Tiny said Eve. You do you! We got your back no matter what. In the grand scheme, who cares if it is a year or a little more. It will be a year or more that you have not smoked and THAT  is the prize! Go Eve!!heart_eyes

So.....just updating. On 11/30 started to take 1/2 pill in day and night. So will do this for the next 30 days. So far so good on no real thoughts, dreams YES, waking craves/thoughts not really. It’s still a passing thought.

Thought about after this 30 days to just stop, but honestly I’m still on the fence and don’t want to have awful craves or something more. So I think will just continue my path. And keep updating this post. Someone down the line, may read this and have their own system also.

Oh ok

i was just wondering about the length of time weaning. Maybe I already asked. I’m ver forgetful these days. I weaned off over maybe a month and when I finally stopped I didn’t notice anything at all

good luck

Great going Eve.  I used this forum and Chantix to stop back in 2007.

Have a great day.

So another month has passed, still having craves/thoughts, the cravings are easily dismissed, but the thoughts are maddening. Seriously why after all this time should I still THINK about it. But I know I’m NOT crazy because others further along and a lil behind me are still “thinking “ about it!

Just shows how much this addiction had over me! I would not let a human treat me this bad, had no idea I actually was doing this to myself! Anyway moving on to weaning off......I have started the new regime!

Now 1/2 pill every morning

1/2 pill at night every other day

So will do this for another 30days and hope I can get thru this!

I know I am weaning off sloooooowly but this is what’s best for me!

It’s ok to do it slowly. The important thing is you’re not smoking and you are weaning. Nice

Wow Eve. There is an angle that I’m sure many of us haven’t taken with this the power of addiction; “ I wouldn’t let a human treat me this bad”. 
Hmmmm. Definitely not. What a good way to look at it and fuel our fight! Thanks!

Great going Eve.  Think I took 6 to 9 months to wean off Chantix.  Hardly notice since

I smoked 38 years across 40 years.  So very glad it's way back in the past. 

Have a great day.
