i was talking to my mom this morning (which is rare)..she has been a smoker for about 45 years at about 1-2 packs per day..anyway..she said that she is
thinkng about quitting and she heard about champix and wanted to try that. i dont really know to much about the medication so i just shared with her my
cold turkey quitting experience. the thought of qutting ct for her seemed a little to much for her to handle:eek:. i thouroughly told her that i understand the feelings she is feeling about it and tried to reassure her that after a week the crave will lessen. im looking for some opions to see who took this med and did it help or not? she said that she heard that there are alot of side effects...then my dad chimes in and says//"your worried about side effects from this med but you dont worry about the side effects from smoking//lung cancer..heart problems--etc" then of course she is quiet..she has a TERRIBLE cough:eek: has no energy, her minds going..so many bad effects from smoking all these years!! im so happy that i stopped!! and yes my dad has been a smoker on & off..he only smokes when he drinks..
