Three months Quit!

Three months and a week or two quit and I am feeling great! Off the meds(which worked great for me) and am flying solo. What it comes down to now is my decision to stay quit on a daily basis. What ever method you decide to use will work as long as you have a true desire to quit the cigs. Good luck to all of you trying to kick the habit!

Re: Three months Quit!

Great job Velveeta!!! I'm almost at 4 months, but my doctor still has me on chantix. I am ready to stop since I haven't smokedat all since my quit date. Did you feel a difference when you stopped your meds or were you on a different type?
Again congrats on quitting!!!!
Bob

Re: Three months Quit!

I did not feel any differently than I normally do but I did get a few intense urges. I used the Chantix after numerous quit attempts and it allowed me to calmly give the cigs up. It is still an hour by hour and day by day choice not to smoke but it is getting easier. I try to keep busy. I am just so glad that I gave them up and I feel way better now than when I smoked. Am finding out that stress is still stress and those smokes did nothing to help. I hope you all stay strong in your quits!!

Re: Three months Quit!

Congrats Bob and Jean. How long did you both smoke. I smoked a good 30yrs if not more. I am so happy that gigs are not controlling me anymore. Now I have to deal with a little weight gain and that should prove easier than giving up the smokes.

Re: Three months Quit!

Velveeta- It is awsome we have the same quit date. I finally have someone who can relate. I am going to the doctor on Fri. an ask about weaning off Chantix. I'm a little worried since I read about the lady's husband that developed the thyroid issues. I have a lot of the same issues, extreme muscle pain(the doctor told me I was getting old and to take some Motrin!--I'm 48), constant mood changes and tiredness. Hopefully it will go away.
I smoked for 33 years, tried to quit once before with the patch. I only used it for 2 weeks and thought I didn't need it anymore and started again. Like I said before I will never go through this again so if I start that will be it. I think this will work. I feel a lot better now I found you guys!
Keep on hanging on everybody. We can do it!!!
Bob

Re: Three months Quit!

Bob, I did not do the whole 3 months and I weaned which was helpful. I had joint pain and insomnia until I lowered my dose. The pain was unbearable but my quit was more important. If you are determined to stay quit you will Chantix or no Chantix. Husband was not on the meds too long either. No bad effects with him that I noticed but we both gained a few pounds. I did not want to have Chantix become a crutch. I am flying solo and think no further than the hour in front of me. By all means have the doc check you out. Good luck Bob!

Re: Three months Quit!

Velveeta, Talk to my doctor today to ween of Chantix, she told me when I felt ready to go ahead. How did you know that you were ready, it make me nervous because on thing I do not want to do is relapse. Do you feel the same as when you were on them, day to day. Keep up the good work
Thanks
Jean
