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.

Ok it’s been a rollercoaster of craves. But I kept the dosage longer because of that.....I did finally cut that down by doing the at night pill every 2 days.....did that for 2weeks.

So now I my only dosage is 1/2 a pill in morning......going to try that probably til end of month or if I feel can do sooner I will start skipping days earlier. For me its what I feel my body is telling me. I’m excited to be free of the meds, but I really am apprehensive about just cold turkeying it! Yes I made that word up.....lol

So you are caught up......will post more when changes, but so far yes thoughts, and all that goes with it, but easy to dismiss. 

Hugs to all in the journey to freedom!

So just to update this thread.......I started doing every 2 days I would take the Chantix, but then I 

Got Covid........

so needless to say I had absolutely no desire to smoke, so I just stopped the Chantix. It’s been almost 2weeks without it, so I am clear and free from NRTs. 

End of my story for weaning off Chantix.....oh and my Covid story, still a lil under weather, but feeling better everyday! 

Cheers to all who quit, you just don’t know how happy I am to have quit and be successful before I got Covid. 

I hope everyone in their journey to freedom learns ONE THING....... doesn’t matter how you succeed, using NRTs or cold turkey.....it’s JUST SUCCEEDING!!!
