Vitamin water will help. Im taking the same medicine too and am on day 19. I drink about a case of water a week. In the morning now i drink one water and go to the bathroom. Its funny....i hate water but now cant get enough of it.

Welcome KathieO and congratulations on now 20 days smoke free, well done!

Welcome to our community Carlislekitten - toilet issues can be common withdrawal when we stop, pharmacist should be able help seeing as you are eating plenty of veg, water and walking.

Keep in touch with us, you are doing great!

PS Can you confirm how long you are smoke free for your milestone badges - exact stop date?

My quit date is Oct 11th. This is my 5th time quitting. 4th time taking Chantix. chantix doesnt work like the first time. I feel all the withdrawls and cravings. The med does help with those. I feel different this time so this may be the "one".

Why you call your stop date stupid, it is the best day and decision of your life!!

Hopefully this is 'the one' - I quit cold turkey over 2 years ago on my 3rd attempt, wishing you strength, stay close to us :)
