I am pretty new here..about a week....and have not had a cigarette in 17 days thanks to Chantix. I discovered I had COPD in September when the 9th bout of pnumonia put me in the hospital the 2nd time in 7 years. I tried the patches and gum then but wasn't very successful. The Chantix has been wonderful and has all but eliminated the cravings. Today is day 2 without any at all due to some health issues at the moment and I have to say I am doing just fine. Still no cravings, no anything. The smell makes me sick.
We are expecting our first Grandbaby anyday now. I want to be around to see her grow up and see all the rest that come along. Plus I don't want any of them exposed to second hand smoke. Out of 4 children only 1 smokes. So ....say a prayer for me that I continue to make it cuz I sure need it.
