I keep hearing about all the insomnia issues people keep having with the Chantix. I ain't seeing it! I want to sleep morning, noon and night. I want to invent an NEW time of day just so I could sleep through it also! Alas I am too tired to go to all the trouble of inventing anything at this point in time.
Anyone else in the sleepy boat with me?
Two days, 55 minutes and 3 seconds. 71 cigarettes not smoked, saving $14.27. Life saved: 5 hours, 55 minutes.
LOL! I felt like I was under water for the first few weeks on Chantix - actually a great feeling. Very calm. Just sleepy. Now, after 45 days, I still feel sleepy sometimes but i also know that I wasn't sleeping well the last days of smoking so I'm not that bothered. Have you had the dreams yet??
I started having the dreams on I think my second night. They are wild and amazing for ure. I've went fom being a staffer on the oprah Winfrey show to being romanced by a French God named Remy who spent hours searching Paris high and low for my perfect shampoo. Of course there was the one night that Harry Potter and Pichachu combined powers to produce such a horrendous fart that it took out the entire Chinese Army. Whew! What nights I have been having!
I was very sleepy at first. I slept for the first week or so about 12 hour a day and wanted to sleep more!!
I never did have the dreams!! Sounds like a new movie each night.
You're doing so good. Two days down!! A lifetime to go!!
Keep it up!!
Sleepiness could be yet another nicotine withdrawal symptom due to a sudden shortage of adrenalin being triggered when you quit. I gave in to sleeping 12 hours a night for the first month but now I walk, cycle, dance and sing in the bath and feel really energised. Chantix also seems to reduce anxiety and perhaps over relax a little. Fear not!! Big hits of energy will be coming your way soon
Hi Lucy: In the beginning, I was just like you described. It last about 11 days. I decided that I wasn't smoking 'cause I wasn't awake long enough But...it passed after that 11th day. I'm sleeping really well...feel so rested when I wake. I've always dreamed, so nothing new there. Still dreaming and having a good time in them. Thursday night, dreamed I'd won a million dollar lottery!
lol I dreamed one night that my Brad Pitt look a like brother and his Angelina Jolie wife, with my neice, were moving in with my family until they could get back on there feet. Then a friend (Ashton Kutcher) wanted to move in with us too. My husband didn't want him to but I felt really sorry for him. lol
Then I looked in the mirror and I looked like I did 20 years ago, but with a lot better hair.
LOL..Last night I walked down the Red Carpet to accept my Oscar..only problem was that my friends were in the audience and not the expected stars...I kept shooing them away and trying to get to Harvey Keitel!!! PS I looked great...Harvey, not so much..
ROFLMAO@ Harvey Keitel! At least you were clothed right?
Those are some awesome dreams on the Chantix. I didn't take Chantix so no really good dreams. I really like your dream, delighted. Who wouldn't want to accept an Oscar. Anyways. I haven't had too many dreams that I remember. I pretty much are zonkers. Most nights I get up around 2 or 3ish in the morning.
Anyways, everyone is doing a great job...keep it up!
