Hey TomJC - congrats on your 29 days smoke free! WOO HOO!!
I quit taking the Chantix after the 2nd week and am still doing fine in my quit. I think everyone will be different. My husband quit taking his too - and he was a heavier smoker than me - and has cravings every now and then, but he's doing just fine. We are determined to make this work for us, so I think alot of it has to do with you, as a person and your willpower and how much you want to stay quit. If this is it, and you've made up your mind, no more smoking, then "Smoking is not an option" and you can probably wean yourself off or quit taking the med altogether. If you stop taking it, and feel the urges coming back, then pop a pill. I didn't feel I needed them any longer. I just need to get thru that first week or two of being a non-smoker.
I have been quit 4 weeks, 4 days, 3 hours, 27 minutes, 43 seconds
